Make Them Smile

My mom and I took the kids to Chuck E Cheese’s today. They ask to go almost every weekend, but the running joke at our house is that it gives me a headache (not a joke to me…it really does give me a headache) so we don’t go very often.

After attending the funeral of a little girl that lived in our community I came home wanting to do something to make my kids smile.

It worked.

Anna loved the ride that took pictures and of the 12 or so tokens she had to spend she spent nine of them there. She put all her pictures in a sandwich baggie when she got home and hid them in her pajama drawer. She finally relented and let me “borrow” one to scan.

I love that girl.

Thinking about Mara and her family makes me want to hold all the kids a little harder and a little longer. If you read through her website I am sure you will be touched in the same way.
