Just one day after Charlie made it perfectly clear that he wants more Mommy time, he made huge strides at Mommy & Me class this morning.
For months, he has chosen not to participate preferring to sit on my lap as an observer. It was almost comical because we would get home and I would catch him practicing some of the moves.
I started to believe that Charlie thought it was my class, not his.
But this morning, he turned the corner. Different kid altogether.
Charlie did everything. He participated in every song and every movement. He was vocal, and he was engaging. This morning, Charlie Murphy emerged from his shell at the YMCA, and it made me very happy.
So happy that I didn't expect to react the way I did. I couldn't have suppressed the tears if I'd tried.
It was just so very rewarding to witness such a transformation...
