My son was always quick to reach his milestones as a baby.
Why he even aced potty training before he turned 2, shocking both Hubs and myself. So when it was time for preschool we really thought it would be a walk in the park but we were so wrong. What proved to be one of the hardest seasons, as parents, gently worked to be a lesson in faith and patience, over time.
The day the tears stopped.
It didn’t happen on day 3 or day 6. It happened a whole two weeks later.
Two weeks of waiting on the school premises. Two weeks of listening to him shriek after I slowly edged my way out of his classroom. Two weeks of peeking in to make sure he was ok. Two weeks of burdened praying. Two weeks of receiving assurance after assurance from the wonderful teachers and administrative staff. Two weeks of waiting…
waiting for that day.
And then it happened.
The Monday of week 3, he walked into class, got a big hug from his teacher, turned around gave me the widest grin ever, waved goodbye, walked over to his little buddies and joined them on the carpet strewn with toys.
The tears stopped…
from his end.
I, on the other hand, walked out of his class, sat on the bench outside, called Hubs and cried…
tears of joy, relief, gratitude for answered prayer and peace.
His milestone moment may not have been a big one to many but to us it was HUGE.
Every finish line is a new start
P&G and Babies R Us have teamed up to celebrate such milestone moments, along with Noelle Pikus Pace, US Olympic Skeleton Athlete. Noelle feels strongly that “Raising a family is like training for the Olympic Winter Games” and that “Moms are in training every minute of every day.” And that’s one reason why Noelle relies on Babies R Us to stock up on Pampers.
She also believes that every finish line is a new start, when it comes to achieving those milestones, not just as a parent but also as a child.
