|Fall in the beehive!|
Dman's daycare had a Halloween parade which I left work early for today. I wasn't going to go but then I was worried he would be the only kid who didn't have a parent coming to the parade (at 4 pm!) and subsequent activities. I had to convince some awesome co-workers to move around some stuff so I could leave and they were cool enough to acquiesce.
I sent Dmitri to daycare with a penguin costume courtesy of Nonna. All the parents (like a bajillion--parking was a nightmare) were waiting in the courtyard. The parade started with the littlest kids. Freaking adorable. Dman's class was next.
|Just keep your eyes on Dorothy and the sombero|
|Still doing ok...even though the costume is all jacked up (can't see the beak)|
I ended up just picking him up and we were shuffled inside for a magic show...
|Not too stoked|
|Much happier sans costume|
|This is not going awesome|
We made it through about ten minutes before bailing (no! we didn't stay for face painting! no! we didn't stay for the haunted house!). I sort of feel like a failure and like a crap parent since I didn't force Dman to partake in the additional activities...But he seemed psyched to come home and play with his new "dog."
|Playing with Auntie Mel's latest gift a.k.a. her not-so-secret attempt to change how I feel about most dogs by manipulating my kid|
|I think he's got Magician's Alliance potential! You should see what he can do with a piece of bread!|
In any case, actual Halloween may get blown off. Buuuut, I'm sure I'll have some new ways to make myself feel guilty so maybe we will end up hitting a few houses. I HAVE been in the mood for some junior mints. Anyone know where I can get an adult sized polar bear costume?
