Our First Date

My school PTA had their annual "Mother-Son Dance" tonight and Salvatore took me.
We met and sat with Sara and Jack and had a great time.  We took photos, ate, talked, laughed, hugged students and moms, and danced. 

 I got to quietly observe those students who are so loud and squirmy in class, take their moms by the hands and dance with them, eat dinner with them, and pose nicely for pictures with them.  I saw a whole different side of these kids and their families and I was very proud to know them all and to share a part of it with my own son.  While it is never easy to get up and leave him everyday to go to work, I am proud of the hard work that I am able to do and of the love and care that I am trusted to share with these kids.  Salvatore will one day soon get to have the same experiences and I pray that he has great teachers who get up and do the right thing for him day after day also.  The highlight of my evening was watching him dance and watching all of the other people watch him!


  1. Salvatore has some moves! I am glad you got to have this experience with him. I am sure he was the hit of the party:) I am so stinkin' emotional right now that I have tears in my eyes - you guys are too curte! Can't wait to take Dean one day:)

  2. he was the star of the show :)
    we had a fun time, too!

  3. He is so cute. So glad to hear you had such a wonderful time. What a great memory. I can't wait to go with Jacob some day :).

  4. Ok, he is so going to be a heart-throb when he grows up! Those moves are too much! Oh I miss him so and you too! Can't wait to see you all again! Lots of love!
