Here's a preview of the ROBOT costume I've been working on for the past couple of days (and enjoying every second of it). Is there anything that make you feel like a true, for-real mom other than creating a Halloween costume? Last night, there was a big Halloween festival in a local park, so I took Thomas for a trial run as a ROBOT. It was a really great event, from what I could tell, with age-appropriate activities for each kid set, and I know Thomas will adore it when he's a little older. We were supposed to hang out with our new friends but Thomas wasn't exactly cooperative on that front. I'm so glad we had a trial run, because I discovered that the costume was a little too long for him to walk properly. Twice he fell down (because he refused to hold my hand) and couldn't get up, he just laid on the ground, flailing. How can I not laugh? and think COSTUME FAIL!
