Hallowe'en pictures, 2005-11-01, 07:33
This is what I sent a friend earlier. Enjoy.
Get the attachment? No? That's because he did not let me put his
costume on. AT ALL. Well, we did get it on and he screamed and screamed
and screamed. Fortunately we were outside as we figured he was warm inside
and that's why he didn't want it on. So the neighbours heard. And then he
screamd and screamed and screamed and screamed and we got in the car and
he screamed some more. So we stopped and took it off. We didn't get to
make the stops I wanted to make (M.s, my aunts) and just went out to my
parents house where he ran around like crazy and said 'NO!!' each time we
tried to put the costume on him. Either that, or he'd nod until we tried
to and then would cry when he saw it.
He used to love that damn costume.
This is what I sent a mailing list that I'm on (we do blessings and
bitchings as a way to vent and appreciate things):
This was my note from the universe today (as indeed it was
everyones I assume), but it made a lot of sense to me :
Focus on what was good, Alison, think of what was fun, and remember
what you liked.
My bitching is, of course, Patrick and his costume. He loved it when we
bought it, he loved wearing it before. But last night, nope. No costume.
I'm disappointed as I wanted to have pictures, show him off and have my
little monkey in a monkey costume. But you know what, my blessings come
from yesterday as well. He shares SO well - we ate some of the cheesies
that parents at the day care gave him and he kept giving one or two to me
when he saw I didn't have one. He ate chocolate for the first time
yesterday and had so much fun running around on a chocolate fix. He didn't
hurt himself when he slid off of the piano bench at my parents house. He
played piano, ran around and giggled a lot. He has a sense of self and
knows what he likes and what doesn't work for him. He knows and loves my
parents, knows and loves their house and knows and loves myself and Der.
And really, monkey suit or not, he is my monkey. Sure I regret not having
pictures, but maybe someother time we can put the suit on him and get a
few. He had fun last night and that's the point of hallowe'en for kids his
And that was Hallowe'en for us. No pictures, no costume, but a kid that
likes to run around and share his cheesies.
