The big surprise.

Today Lorelai gave me strict instructions not to go into Alexandra's room. And if by chance there was something that I needed from Alexandra's room I was to ask her to go get it for me.

(this was while Alexandra was at school)

Well, I tried to be obedient, but I ended up accidentally seeing the surprise.

She had carefully laid Alexandra's soccer uniform out on her bedroom floor in anticipation of her practice this evening.

Everything from her shoes to her shin guards to her jersey was there.

My heart melted. I love these moments that make motherhood so rich.
