Who knew Chick-fil-A could be a fine dining experience? Take a Penguin with you and you will see. Despite the intermittent play breaks it still takes her a good thirty minutes to even eat her food. Plus she must decide the difficult decision of keeping her treat or turning it in for ice cream. There are list involved sometimes.
During one of these visits while she pondered life across from me, I just couldn’t help but smile. Smile and thank God for this opportunity that my husband was giving me to be a stay at home mom with her. I was immersed in her conversation while at the same time so delighted not to be at a workplace. I could feel the freshness and weightlessness of the genuine moment we were sharing.
“It’s weird I like these cherries, I mean , I didn’t always like them.”
“Okay, and then what happened?”
“But, I drink cherry coke, and that’s cherry…..so, I don’t know”
I’m just smiling from ear to ear.
She flips her hair.
“Was my hair like this when I was five”?
Then I just laughed and was so thankful I had not missed a moment of what just happened.
