And here is my little monster:
And he is eagerly awaiting Halloween. For weeks he has been harping on being a spider. Old Navy has a cute costume, I figured I would get it this weekend. Until yesterday he decided he wants to be a dragon. OK. A red one! After scouring the Internet I have not found a red dragon costume that was not for an 8 year old. I broke the news lightly. It went down like this:
Me: Pres there are no red dragon costumes. What about Spider Man?
Pres: I don't want to be Spider Man. I want to be a dragon. Go find a blue one or a gray one.
Mel believed he would forget about it. Yeah, not so much. Today in the car...he remembered that LAST YEAR his friend Javier was a dragon...a freakin red one! In fact I have a picture of it! I think Javier's mother made that costume and we do not need to go into my un-craftiness now do we? I am thinking of buying the costume from his mother. Although Javier is one of the tallest boys in school which would force me to go back to the tailor.
Speaking of the tailor....I have successfully negotiated a price on all pants at $6 a pair. This is a break from the $9 I paid in NY. You had to see me trying to explain to the new tailor that I will be a great customer if she would give me a good price. I told her my son is a little person. She looked at me like, well what the hell else would he be? So each week I am bringing her like 3 to 4 pairs so as not to inundate her with 20 pairs all at once. (20 includes pajamas and sweat pants before everyone starts going 20 pairs WTF is wrong with you)!
Have a great rest of the week everyone!
