As we've been organizing our garage in preparation for the big move, our children discovered the box stuffed with Halloween costumes and supplies. It never ceases to surprise me how much our kids enjoy dressing up and pretending.
It certainly makes me feel good to see our children wearing specialty costumes over and over (and over) again that I thought for sure they'd only wear trick-or-treating once, before rapidly outgrowing before the next Halloween.
For the past few days, they've morphed in to Dorothy, Witch and Scarecrow. Although we've got the Tin Man costume, our five-year-old would prefer to wear the all flannel Scarecrow which is actually sized for a toddler. But that doesn't stop him from squeezing in to it every day. It makes me laugh when he'll say, "Nope! This doesn't hurt!" (squirm. squirm.) Then, with sweat beading on his brow he'll ask, "Now, where can I find a brain?"
As it turns out, our resident toddler has his own opinion on what he'd prefer to wear.
No surprise there.
