Jack and Ben’s school does so many wonderful things to make life extraordinary for them.
Tonight I attended the “Me and My Guy” dance with Jack and Ben.
After spiffing ourselves up a bit and after Adam and Jack had a secret talk, we headed over to school.
At first Jack was very sullen to see he was the first of his friends to arrive. As a result he was very straight faced for our first few attempts at pictures.
He perked up instantly once his buddies started arriving and pretty soon instead of hanging out with mom he was racing around the room with his cronies, running and giggling.
As soon as those two arrived I hardly saw Jack. But he did make a few appearances, bearing water bottles or brownies for me.
I spent the entire evening like this….
I danced with Ben in my arms until I was shaking, and then I danced some more. I guess Ben noticed there wasn’t a twin in that spot and decided to exploit the opportunity. It made me realize just how young he still is. He looks like a giant next to the twins, but he’s still my little baby boy. Also I noted in my head that Jack would never let me do this to him, so I’d better get all the cuddling in I can while he will still stomach it.
And even if I’m not cool enough to dance with, Jack later found Ben and gave him a few spins on the dance floor.
He also asked if he could pose with Ben for the camera, sans Mom.
Later I found out that the talk Adam had with Jack was to let him know he was taking Mom out and he should take care of her, hold open the doors and make sure she’s well hydrated and fed. He was the perfect gentleman.
