Human Highlights: Miller Turns Three

Human Highlights is a Sunday tradition at Commode To Joy. It’s a friendly reminder to forgive your human moments, celebrate the highlights, and enjoy life’s little lovelies in the interim.

……………………………………………….

Human Moment: Like that time (Monday) when Miller and I were at the store and he was being such a stinker that I sat my basket of items down without purchasing them. That was a first.

Or that time (Friday) when I took Miller to get his haircut and he was  screaming/crying/bucking/thrashing/hysterical to the point that the hair along his neck was trimmed and that was it; I called off the rest of the haircut. That was a first.

Or that time (today) when I wrote a Facebook post about his third birthday party and cried while composing it because I don’t want this stage in life to end, and I know that it will.

……………………………………………….

Highlight: Last night, before bed, I asked Miller what the favorite part of his day was. He most enjoyed when everyone at his party sang “Happy Birthday” to him. He sat in his chair and looked around at all of people celebrating him, his happiness so complete that at times he couldn’t contain it and laughs of sheer joy spilled out.

His favorite moment of the day is my highlight of the week.

Life’s Little Lovelies: I asked Miller what kind of birthday cake he wanted.

“Purple.” he responded immediately.

Cupcakes

Nailed It.

What are your Human Highlights from the week?
