spelling bee

You know when you have those moments where you just feel like you love your kid so much you could burst?  While I realize that sounds cheesy, I write it because I know any mom can relate. :)  Last night was one of those moments as I watched our little guy stand up on a stage in front of tons of people.  He had won his class' spelling bee and was able to participate in the school wide spelling bee.

I can't begin to tell you how cute he was up there at the microphone. He was so composed and so completely opposite the kid who, three years ago, buried himself in his teacher's chest during his Christmas performance with his Autism preschool class.

While he exited during the second round (he misheard "end" and spelled "and"), his little cheering section consisting of us and my parents couldn't have been more proud.  Here is a 20 second clip...

I asked him what treat he wanted afterward for doing such a great job.  A donut it was. :)

Oh, I SOOOOO share that pride in him. What a confident little boy he was to sit on that stage with K-8th graders and follow directions. Almost made me cry with joy too!
