The Day Latham Wore Something Other Than Sweatpants And Didn’t Cry About It.

Sweatpants and a t-shirt are all you want to wear

Jeans and a button down you say you can’t bear.

 

So every morning we battle, just you and I

You peel off your pj’s and say it’s sweatpants you spy.

 

You scamper to your dresser and pull out the third drawer

And dig out your sweatpants in the color you adore.

 

The sweatpants are not green, blue, black, brown, or grey

They’re red – match nothing – and you wear them every day.

 

But you dressed yourself yesterday in something surprising

“Mommy, you’ll just love it,” you happily were chiming.

 

I walked in your room expecting the same sweatpants in red

And there you sat in jeans and a polo while giggling on your bed.

 

“The Easter Bunny will say I’m handsome,” you said smiling wide

I agreed, high fived you, and gave you tickle on your side.

 

So we all went to the mall – your dad, brother, you and I

To show the Easter Bunny your outfit and sit on his thigh.

 

But as soon as we got home, you ripped off your clothes

And pulled on your red sweatpants – I guess that’s how it goes.

 

But I bought the Easter picture so I could have evidence of the day

You wore something other than your red sweatpants or your batman pj’s.
