Things I Have Given My Child

I have seen this post on numerous mommy blogs and it has always made me smile. And then I started thinking about my own list and came to the realization that mothers everywhere will give their children anything if just for a needed 30 seconds during emergency situations.
We've all had our desperate moments.
It makes me feel better about my own.
So I thought I would make our own list.
