I try to make every holiday special. On St. Patrick's Day, I had the Leprechaun visit Laura with something small. Nothing big or expensive. I thought her reaction was adorable. So, every year, the leprechaun comes.
Laura always writes notes, and she wrote a note expressing gratitude and said she liked him or her for coming. This year he gave her a book. He gave Jason a neat truck/car set. Jason didn't quite get the whole Leprechaun theme but he certainly enjoyed his gift.
I love being their mom and I know it won't last forever, but as long as I can, I will do the best I can.
