What an exciting morning. The kids were all smiles knowing that today was the day that their daddy would come to school and read a book. It was parent volunteer book reading month and when the kids learned that their daddy was on the calendar they just beamed. The book was selected the night before so all things were falling into place. I got the kids up, fed and dressed them for school. In the car ride the giggles began as well as the questions. Is daddy coming now? When is daddy coming? Where is daddy? Boy, they were endless but I couldn’t help but smile. I explained to them that daddy is scheduled for 10:00 am so that meant after the morning circle and morning snacks. They stayed quiet for just a moment and then the same questions came up. They were just too excited and wanted reassurance that he was definitely going to be apart of their morning at school. I was giggling too. I knew the kids would be attached to Asher from the moment he walked into the school.
It was almost time to head to school with Asher. I had butterflies in my belly just for knowing how the kids would react. Sadly, I wasn’t able to see it but from the moment he walked into the school to the moment he walked out, I could just picture the expressions and how it all went. My husband had a sweet smile on his face while walking in my direction. Book in hand and a smile on his face. Boy, did I love seeing this. I’m not sure I could describe the feeling I felt inside but let’s just say it was like waiting to hear the ice-cream truck bell on a hot summer day. Right at that moment when you were wiggling about on the tips of your toes because you couldn’t take it anymore you heard that sweet sound. Awe, your body relaxes and you run in the direction of the truck. That’s how I felt when I saw my sweet husband walk towards me with that smile. I knew it was the best reading ever.
I can’t wait to pick the kids up today so I can hear their version of how it all went. This is definitely something to look forward to.
