|Grace, outside in her pjs, at XX o'clock...|
Grace: Mom, do we have school today?
Me: Yes, Grace. It's Wednesday.
Grace: Do we have school tomorrow?
Me: Yep. Tomorrow is Thursday
Grace: How about the day after tomorrow? (I kid you not, she keeps going)
Me: That's Friday. You have school then, too. The day after that is Saturday.
Grace: YES!!!! (here she genuinely celebrates despite the fact that Saturday is 4 days later than she'd hoped it was)
We all have our passions. I am passionate about running and music. Grace is passionate about lazy pajama days. On Thursday night, she gets a little twinkle in her eye. By Friday she's got a skip to her step and she's giddy. I love it. It's not the most typical passion for a 6 year old. But it makes her so damn happy. I've gotta believe (hope, pray) that she's not going to be 40 years old and still want to live, work and play in her pajamas. But for now, she's doing something she loves every week and she does it really well. I am doing my best to live by her example.
