Every day kid adventures are a riot. Scallywag pretended to be a pirate all day today. He kept singing at the top of his lungs, "What do you do with a scurvy pirate? Make him walk the P L A N K!" He said, "Hey mom, I'm a really scruvy pirate. Smell me! ARRGH!" Maybe one day I'll explain to him what scurvy means.
Yesterday he spent the whole evening in a cape, terrorizing anybody he could get to play along. He kept telling me he was going to save the university from Dark Fader. (Translation--the universe from Darth Vader?) He can't decide if he wants to be a pirate or a cowboy or a farmer or Thomas or a superhero for Halloween. My guess is, as long as there is candy he just won't care. And in light of Halloween's imminent approach, PLEASE check this out.
