Will's Halloween Costume
My Girlie picked out this costume for Will back in September. I'm thinking there's no way I'm putting my infant in something as macabre as a bag of bones, so I explained that he'd be a good month pending when Halloween came. Then I worried that maybe he wouldn't. The Girlie is sometimes intuitive that way. She gave me the puppy eyes and the wheedling smile, then the "You always say we can't afford it right now," speech. And she offered to pay for it out of her own money. So I gave in. And she jumped up and down and clapped her hands. I was happy to make her happy. And really, it was only $4.88, but it was covered in bones! Yuck! This is the kid who loves rubber rats and plastic bones and takes such delight in hiding plastic spiders on my pillow, in my linens, inside my shoes, on my hairbrush... Danged kid! And I let her keep her money. No matter that Will was 11.5 weeks old when he finally fit in it, The Girlie was thrilled to come home from school and see Jax in her outfit!
