Dance Baby Dance!

I am on crutches. The natural result of cute wedges, chasing children and a small hole in the yard. Of course it was in middle of Easter dinner at my mother-in-law's house. Everyone was super sweet and I was in and out of the emergent care center within an hour.

I am immobile and caring for a 2 1/2 year old who is NEVER still. I was alone with my little fella yesterday, as my 6 year old and hubby were at Pirates opening day. The drive home was excruciating and I couldn't wait for naptime.

My Caden is the gentlest little giant I have ever met. His smile, his laughter, his very life is BIG.

When he saw me with my 'boo boo' he asked me if it "hurted". If he saw me walking with no "crushes" he would hold my hand and try to help.

I don't know where this big hearted, gentle giant came from. However, I am thankful he is aware and gentle when he needs to be.

Last night, after jammies, we sat down to watch a little t.v. While flipping channels, we came across the t.v. show "Dancing with the Stars". I'll be honest, I hate it. I am a "So You Think You Can Dance" devotee. Caden LOVED it!

The second it was on he said, "I do it!" and began to dance around the living room. On commercials he would crawl in my lap to cuddle only to leap out to dance at the first sign of music.

Here was my rough and tumble little giant tip toeing and and twirling and giggling with all his might. I was loving watching my baby dance. I thought to the day when I will watch him dance away to his prom. I thought of the time I'll be standing on the side and see him dance with the love of his life at his wedding. I thought of when he may hold the hands of his little girl to twirl in his grown up living room.

On a waltz he walked over and said, "Dance wiff me. Come on Mooooooooom!". I couldn't resist. I took my little sweetie's hands in mine and limped around in circles. It wasn't pretty but it was all for me. It was all our moment. It was a moment I'll cherish forever.

I hope you always dance, my Caden. I hope you'll always dance with someone who loves you. Thank you.
