Mags actually slept through the entire night last night. i assume that God realized i was at the end of my rope. i didn't even wake up to pee and i had 2 glasses of wine before bed (no, not alone). it was beyond fantastic.
i still don't know what to do about Nate's costume for Halloween. i was going to try to do the wolf suit Max wears in Where the Wild Things Are but i can't sew. so now i'm thinking i'll create a robot costume out of a Pampers box and tin foil. i know i could just buy him something but i'm staging a one person revolution. i never had a store-bought costume growing up and neither did anyone i knew. what ever happened to creativity? originality?
ok, so its partly because i'm cheap but still... not to mention most costumes kind of suck and he doesn't know who a "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle" or "Spider-Man" are. he likes robots and "diggers" and i think a robot will be easier than trying to turn him into a bulldozer or back-hoe.
thankfully he's not a girl because all they get at the store are princess costumes or the "sexy" version of a nurse, witch, school teacher, police woman...you name it. ok, thats mostly the adult costumes but some of the kids ones are pretty sketch too.
i am seriously starting to wish that time machines were real because i really don't like the direction in which this world is headed. back to basics people. has this recession taught you nothing?
