Yesterday was one of those really proud days. I went to see Issa be the absolute cutest maggot ever. The first grade did a great job with the play, and she cracked the gym up. The highlight for me, though, was when she found me in the crowd. I went straight to the gym when I got there, and I sat on the floor so I could record the show. I watched as she filed in and scanned the crowd. When she finally saw me, her whole face lit up and she did the tiniest wave. I have never been so glad to have two feet that were sound asleep on a hard gym floor in my life. That moment made it all worth it.
We also had ballet dress rehearsal last night, and I love seeing Issa on stage. Yes, it was hot and long, but those few moments on stage make it all worth it.
And then we came home to this:
This time of year is so beyond exhausting. The end of year events just keep coming, and I think if I sign one more form or hot glue one more bit of randomness I might lose it. But...then there are these moments, and it's all worth it.
