Halloween 2018 has come and gone. The fur boys had a good time dressing up like cats, all of the 10 seconds they had their headbands on to take these photos. Once they realized that their brother had something on their head well it was a free-for-all trying to get them off. All this fun in my front yard!
Little Buddy had quite the day. We woke really early to get down to the children's hospital in St. Petersburg for a routine MRI and Neurosurgery appointment. He walked everywhere as these two appointments were in two different buildings. All is good with that little brain of his thank goodness. His neurosurgeon is always so amazed at how well he is doing. She saved his life twice when he was about 5 weeks old. After all this fun we went to Little Buddy's medical foster family where I worked on two children while he entertained everyone. He loves them so much and believe me it is mutual.
On to home where he had his speech therapy and then a tiny rest time before the festivities of the evening. He was Gecko from the show PJ Masks on Disney Jr. This year I decided to buy a costume instead of my completely overboard themes of the past. Really, that train costume last year took me two weeks to make and all he did was wear it for 12 houses. He wanted to be Gecko so I ordered the costume online. The joke was on me as when I opened it yesterday afternoon, I know last minute Meredith, it was way, way too big. I ended up cutting off the legs, which led to his crotch being way too low. Which meant I had to bring the whole bottom up at the waist, but I made it too tight. Out came the seam ripper again and I lowered it a 1/2 inch to the perfect size. But then the legs were too short, so I sewed them back on, but cut off the feet. Yikes, did you follow that? An hour of sewing and it fit, so much for not wanting to sew a costume! He was thrilled and loved being Gecko even though he only made it 6 houses before I had to carry him home. He was so tired, it was so hot out and he was just burning up in all that polyester. Still it was a wonderful night with The Aunts here from Wisconsin to tag along.
Let me just say that today he had a horrible day at school and at PT after school. He is just exhausted. So it was homework, bath and a very early bedtime. Tomorrow I hope he is better. I can't imagine many of the kids had a good day today. I had just two kids yesterday not my normal 10 due to Little Buddy's appointments. Then today I had two cancel, and I had to cancel my last four because it was my day to get 35 shots in my head and neck. I think Little Buddy and I both need to be in bed early tonight.
Yesterday was also my oldest son's birthday. He is now Mr. 25 and I just adore him. He is a hard worker, a great big brother, and a bit of a help at home when I ask him. He can make me laugh like no one else, well and scream a bit too if I am honest. He is growing into the man I think he should be even if he has a few edges to soften. He is off to Columbus, OH tomorrow to see his friends and celebrate his birthday. Oh, to be young again!
Here is wishing you all a great weekend if I don't check in and write another post. I hope to see what you have all been up to this weekend, catching up is on my to do list. Hope your Halloween was fun if you celebrated. Happy November everyone!
