The Moments You Cry

One thing every mother can agree on is that there are so many moments in motherhood that bring tears to our eyes. None of us can probably sit down and write out every single time a tear came to our eye while watching our children, but there are some that stick out and bring back a myriad of images to your mind.

  • When you first lay eyes on your child.
  • Seeing him/her smile for the first time.
  • Hearing “Mama” for the first time.
  • Your child taking their first steps.

All the normal milestones.

For me though, it’s the milestones that seem to be off the beaten path. Seeing my kids accomplish something that I loved as a child and can relate to now is more priceless than anything I can think of.

Tonight one of those milestones occurred.

See, I started reading at the age of 5. I was a bit of a geek, I know. But I loved books and wanted to read so badly that all it took was a bit of help and I was off and flipping the pages. So tonight, when at the age of 5, my son read his first sentence I cried. I had tears streaming down my face looking at how proud he was of himself. This is one moment that I will NEVER forget.

What was the most recent moment your kids made you cry?


  1. I got pre-teary ice skating with Abby yesterday – I played hockey for lots of years, and when we were done she asked me if she can play hockey now that she has ice skated!

    Congrats on the reading!
