Post a great moment!

Mine was today. My friends that work by me just had a 3 week year old boy, Adien. Its at a tattoo shop and its Phil who runs the place, his wife brought little Adien into the shop to meet us all. He has the best little blue eyes youve ever seen. They had me hold him and he was kicking and screaming and crying, so I sang " sing me to sleep" by the Smiths in his ear, and he stopped crying and looked at me and smiled. and he never took his eyes off of me as I sang to him. They were like, how did you do that. haha. It was so cute, holding such a little baby. Anyways just a good feeling. Post yours!

you're available to babysit now?

well today I got in touch with a friend I hadn't seen in a long time. She's moving to Belgium in a couple weeks and I caught her just in time to see her at least one last time before she goes. That's pretty good

What a sweet idea for a thread, Ricky.
So many views, but 1 response...?

Well here is my most recent great moment:
Teaching my 21 year old son, Sebastian to blow a bubble gum bubble.
It was soooo funny and yet poignant, because it should be something that comes so naturally.
But it is difficult for him to get the concept because of his mental abilities, no matter how I try and teach him.
So, we were sitting in the car, and he was flattening the gum out, but not understanding how to bring the gum over his tongue...
We were laughing so hard, and he just kept trying so hard to blow this flat piece of gum into a bubble, just having the time of our lives.
He FINALLY got the gum to go over his tongue, but blew it out of his mouth.

Maybe you had to be there, but these are things most people take for absolute granted, and I cherish it all.

I just fall in love with my boy/man child every single moment of every single day.

Anytime my niece says, I love you to me for no reason at all. It's special because she's not my own child.

I passed a certification test that I was really really REALLY convinced I was going to fail (as in, I already failed twice and did no more studying this time around b/c I was so busy).

What a wonderful thread and amazing stories. I really haven't had a lot of great moments lately which is why I enjoy reading yours here and hope for something nice to happen for a change.

Hmm, well actually something made me rather happy today. I've been pretty stressed about my thesis and graduating by the end of the this year. I was talking to a teacher about my thoughts and worries and she took me by surprise by telling me that she's always found me the most talented in her class and that she is sure I'll be able to do everything on time and graduate when I want. Hearing that made me so glad and gave me a lot more confidence, especially as it came from someone who I respect a lot.

I feel the same way about my little nephew. The greatest moment was when he finally called me 'Auntie' for the first time.

Two moments;

When I felt my kid's first hug and the Father/Daughter dance.

Getting my graduation degree! I felt like a great accomplishment when I walked across the stage with the others who were on the deans list.

Another one would be when I go home over the summers and spend quality time with my parents... we're so unbelievably close and I really cherish the moments.
