Have you ever picked up pizza to eat for dinner on Halloween? We almost always have. I never really considered just how much work goes into getting a pizza store ready for the insanity that is Halloween. So much prep work.
Clark was "Clark Kent". This made me happy because he was a baby Superman for his first Halloween. It was fitting he would be Superman again for his last Halloween at home before the mission.
Abe said that in the excitement of the festivities, Peter had some language breakthroughs and even tried saying trick-or-treat and thank you. Hooray!
Recently the boys were jumping around and yelling and wrestling with their shirts off. I mentioned to Abe that it had been one of those days and they'd been like this all day.
He suggested that I now had some idea of what most of his childhood was like.
Also, he's not a big candy eater, so no big loss for him.
Kind of a big loss for me though, since I can't charge candy taxes on candy that doesn't exist.
In this picture she looks much taller than me... but this is not the case. It is the angle!
She is my height, however, and it looks like she may pass me up at some point. But not yet!
She is so much snuggly goodness.
And this isn't coming from a first time mom. This is my experience after 8 babies. That being said, the rewards well outweigh the costs. And when you get a dream baby, like Greta... well, it is a little piece of heaven on earth.
Do you like the razor sitting right within arm's reach of the toddler? Speaking of not doing things particularly well.
