Everyday Adventures

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.

Scallywag cracks me up. It's good to know someone's looking out for the university.

Oh how I love having a little boy. They really are so much fun. Yesterday Mason stepped in a fire ant pile and got bit to pieces. He didn't want to come back inside. He kept throwing balls at the ant pile, the place of the crime. Isn't that so funny, only a boy.

Aaah, Halloween is in the air! I was a witch again at the Pumpkin Walk. My favorite part is asking the kids what they're going to be for Halloween. A few moms have said that their child's costume choice was news to them.

Second favorite part of being a witch at the P.W. is cackling. (I ought to post an audio file on my blog. Any ideas on how to do that?) Anyway, thought you'd want to know that I'm back in the blogsphere. For now.
