Oh I honestly love that my kidlets trust me to save the day sometimes.
You wouldn't know it from the note but this is Parker's favorite pair of pants. He is particularly particular about clothes and actually only wears three pairs of pants despite having an entire drawer full of them (shhhh, he doesn't think I know that). He will try to wear the same dirty pair of pants several days in a row if I don't insist on the wearing of clean ones each morning. Lucky him, I do two loads of laundry a day so he has learned to make sure one pair of acceptable pants is in the "to do" basket each day (we do the same thing with socks, but he has five suitable pairs of those) and thus one of his three standard pairs is pretty much always available for use.
Sadly, this pair is getting a little worn (that happens when you only stride around in three pairs of pants for months on end). They have actually been patched before, but it looks like they need some additional attention.
It is fun to be the hero once in a while.
This is a problem I know I can fix...for now (someday they will be too far gone to save).
I love being a mom.
