Jamie and me were talking during Reagan’s bathtime about our day and how it made us feel proud to see our child achieve something. Today as you’ll have seen Reagan began crawling and we were both there to see it happen. For half an hour it seemed like I held my breath watching her and willing her to succeed, and desperately trying not to just gather her up and dance with her held high.
We just had to sit and just smile and encourage her the best thing was we were capturing it on video which feels so special!
That feeling in my tummy and that warm glow, that puffed out chest and that overwhelming urge to burst into tears (which of coarse I never would coz Im northern) I only realised I had, later when sat back and reflected on the day.
I know I do things I’m proud of personally and they make me happy and never think that someone else may be remotely interested in what I do, let alone be as proud as I am for doing it….maybe my mum and dad look at the things I do, however insignificant to others, and maybe they are proud of me sometimes too?
As a parent myself now, I know how it feels to watch my child do something EVERY single person on earth has done before but when Reagan crawled today I was more proud than I have ever been before!
I feel great right now, and on top of the world because my daughter crawled today.
