"It's ok, Mommy."

I'm the first to admit that I get a little emotional these days from the tiniest things. Tonight, a commercial showed a little girl getting ready to go to school for the first time and there were little butterflies fluttering around her stomach as she boarded the bus. She looked out the window and waved goodbye to her mom and then found a card her mom had put in her backpack to reassure her that she would be wonderful and that Mommy loved her. Those butterflies flew out the window.

Yup. I cried. Tears started falling down my face as I pictured putting my little boy on the bus for the first time and I immediately hid my face from Evan and said, "Come on Sarah! Get a grip!" So, my husband is over there chuckling at me because I'm crying over this commercial, but my little boy....my sweet little boy.....climbs up into my lap, wraps his arms around me, puts his head on my shoulder and starts patting my back, as if to say, "It's ok, Mommy. I won't be going to school for a while yet."

I only cried harder, but it was one of the sweetest moments with Isaiah I have had in recent memory. He held me and comforted me for a solid couple of minutes and I was in Mommy Heaven.
