Parental Sacrifices

Yesterday, we were getting ready to run to the store and I was wearing the normal work uniform: plaid PJ pants and a T-shirt. I told the girls that before we could leave, I needed to change pants.

So, Grace hops up, runs into the bedroom and brings me back a different pair of pajama pants -- one with monkeys wearing stocking hats.

I gave her a big hug and told her thank you, but that Mommy was actually looking for her jeans. I held them up to show her that I found them and she snatched the jeans, drug them across the room, and re-handed me the monkey PJ pants.

As she handed them to me, she was beaming with pride.

I looked into those eyes and did what any good Mom would do -- put on the monkey PJ pants, strapped them into their car seats and ran back inside to change.
