Roller Coaster

This evening I had about 15 minuted of down time in my crazy busy day.
The hubby was working late and Baby W was hinting for some cuddle time.
And since cuddle time is my favorite part of every day,
I curled up on the couch to take advantage.
We snuggled as I flipped through the channels.
I saw that one of my all-time favorite movies was on TV,
Parenthood {with Steve Martin}.
I hadn’t seen the movie since becoming a parent myself.
Let’s just say, I wasn’t prepared for the overwhelming emotion I would feel through every single scene of the movie. 
It was like the writers had some how taken every emotion, every fear, every heartbreak, every milestone, every awe-ha moment a parent could ever possibly conceive and they wrapped it up ever-so-perfectly into 120 minutes of laughter and tears.
At one point I looked at Baby W, my eyes filled with tears,
and I felt…
Well, I don’t really know the word for what I felt,
so I guess you could sayI had one of those moments“.
And in that moment, I took a mental picture,
and placed it in the most cherished section of my memory bank.
FAVORITE QUOTE FROM PARENTHOOD:
{by the crazy old grandma}
“You know, when I was nineteen, Grandpa took me on a roller coaster.
Up, down, up, down.
Oh, what a ride!
I always wanted to go again.
You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together!
Some didn’t like it.
They went on the merry-go-round.
That just goes around.
Nothing.
I like the roller coaster.
You get more out of it.”
-Grandma from PARENTHOOD (The Movie)
Life is like a theme park ride.
Will you chose the roller coaster
or the merry-go-round?
