Let me start by saying the adorable teacher featured here is J's first crush. He officially asked her to be his "date" for the bonfire. They set the date for 4:45 to meet at the park. When asked by another teacher if he had a corsage for Mrs. Sandoval, he promptly informed mom "we HAVE to go get one!" As we were leaving school, J asked Mrs. Sandoval to ride with us "because Mommy has a spare seat belt in her car."
Yes, we all swooned over him, and he was left to look at us like we were all crazy.
When I saw the picture below, I saw me. Anyone who knows me personally or has ever worked with me for any length of time, has seen this exact action commenced with exuberance & excitement over a job well done when I didn't think I could do something or it rather challenged me.
I like to refer to them as light bulb moments of success. Seeing J replicating it, well, that just does this momma's heart good. Everyone needs to cheer their successes.
