It's been a few years since I have been on a field trip with the Wildcat.
And I love love love it that he is old enough to make it so I would expect that he wouldn't want me to come along on these sort of things......
BUT....he still wants me to come along on these sort of things.
Making me a lucky mama.
I knew I was lucky when the volunteer slip came home and he asked me if I could go.....
....as opposed to just "showing me" the slip 2 days after it is due.
And I knew I was a lucky mama when he texted me last night (from his dad's house) and said "FINANCE PARK w/MOM 2MOROW!!!"
And I knew that I was extremely lucky when son texted mom this morning to remind her to pack a lunch.....(she would've most likely forgotton?!)
came this afternoon.
When the wildcat risked it all....
....and gave his mama a 1.5 second hug.
Which is just long enough to be deliberate.
But not long enough to be extremely noticable.....
....except to the science teacher who promised she didn't see a thing.
I changed my mind.
I'm not just a lucky mom.
What a gift.
