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.
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.
