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

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

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.

 * Latham, my 3 year old on the left, is the little guy who wears nothing but pj’s and sweatpants.

The One About Easter

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

Neither of you could believe it with your baby blue eyes

But grandma’s backyard held a most colorful surprise.

Eggs sprinkled in the grass in yellow, green, and blue

Filled with special treats packed especially for you.

And the baskets you carried were  big, but not big enough

To hold all of your goodies and the rest of your fun stuff.

And the bags in the yard held something special for you boys

Such as trucks, cars, and buses and all sorts of fun toys.

But the best part about this incredibly special day

How excited you got searching for every single egg.

Every one you discovered was as thrilling as your first

You both were so happy, I thought you might burst.

Your dad and I had so much fun watching you and your brother

It was an amazing Easter morning – better than any other.
