Then something changed. A new girl happened to move in from another state. Out of nowhere, Ethan came home from school all dreamy eyed and walking smack into walls. He smiled non-stop and began talking about her like she hung the moon.
When we actually met this little girl, we knew in a heartbeat why he fell so hard. She is the cutest thing on Earth and the kindest and sweetest girl as well.
What's even more adorable, is how they barely make eye contact with each other when they're in the same room. I can't help but giggle when I see him kick his shoes or look a different way.
Ethan had his last football game of the year on Saturday and guess who came to visit? Yep. Sure enough, it was the best game he's had. He ran harder and played with all of his might.
When the game was over, they smiled at each other and hardly said a word. It was adorably sweet and a moment I'll never forget.
In the car on the way home, Ethan was quiet but had a smile from ear to ear. When we asked how he felt, he simply said, "Good."
A few seconds later, he continued, "Mom...Dad? This was the best day of my life."
That it was, Buddy. That it was.
