The other morning as Nate and I rushed out to catch the bus, we forgot Nate's hat. Tuesdays are self-proclaimed half days, so after school we had to walk instead of take the bus home at 3 pm. As we were walking to a street where we could catch a taxi, I asked him if his ears were cold. He said "yes". I took off my ear warmers and put them on his ears. He said, "But Mommy, you're going to be cold." I told him that I'd rather my ears to be cold than his.
With a look of utter love and appreciation on his little face, he looked up at me and said, "God bless you, Mommy."
