When you love a costume as much as my boy does, Halloween is pretty much the pinnacle of your year. Every year we start talking about costumes at the beginning of September – we have to evaluate options, look around online, and accommodate shifting obsessions. In early September it seemed like we would be going with Captain Rex (a Clone Trooper… yeah, I don’t know either), but by the first week in October B had changed his mind.
On a clear Saturday earlier this month, we dusted off B’s scooter and went for a walk around the neighborhood.
We took a little family stroll over to the library, where B got his own library card, and checked out several books. After a stop at Starbucks, we sat down to enjoy our coffee while B worked on his Woof-bot routine.
This child is so delightfully weird. Please note that he wore the mask during out entire outing, even under his helmet.
B and I waged a mighty battle against the mess that is his bedroom. See all those boxes? I can’t get rid of them because they are all his Transformers, or other art projects that are Special. >>sigh<<
It’s actually not so bad. B’s in a pretty handy phase where he loves to have a ‘job,’ so as long as I give him specific instructions (“Pick up all of the Legos and put them in the box in the living room” works.”Pick up all your toys off of the rug” leaves too much guess work, though.)
