From the day she gave me the costume until the week of Halloween she reminded me "take pictures, take pictures." Whenever she mentioned it I'd think "it is months away, please don't remind me again." But I would simply say, "of course." I believe her excitement stemmed from being a first time grandma, I can't imagine anyone else buying a costume as soon as stores put them on the rack.
Well, the time is swiftly approaching for another Halloween and a new costume is sure to make an appearance in the mail any day now. Please don't misunderstand me, I am not complaining. As a matter of fact I am happy that my mother has taken on the task of ensuring my son is dressed appropriately - even if we have nowhere to go.
In honor of my mother and her impeccable taste in Halloween attire, here is a photo of my son last year.
