Momentous Day

It used to be that each time we left the house, Jesse and I had to negotiate on his costume. Going to church: Sorry, bud, no cape. Going to Target: Sure, wear the whole getup. I usually went shopping with Batman or Superman. Halloween just meant he didn't have to change clothes before going to preschool.

Preschool, Halloween 2010. The day his normal getup was acceptable school-wear.
These days, Jesse usually wears "Roscoe pants" (jeans) or "Levi pants" (sports shorts). He accessorizes with helmets, swords, ninja belts, etc. as needed. But I can't remember the last time he wore a full super-suit. So today we culled. We went through out two big costume buckets and made a pile to send to cousins.

It's bittersweet. Mark and I always say that our idea of heaven is getting to watch the film of each crazy, beautiful moment of life with kids. The moments that whizzed on by before we could fully savor their hilarity, cuteness, or strangeness.

Me carting red-headed Batman through the supermarket is on my list.


  1. How sad! Roko idolized Jesse's super style. In fact today he asked if we could go to Tahoe to see his cousin Jesse. (How he put those two things together Idk!) Any of those costumes would find a happy home here with us!

  2. I know my boys are a little behind yours because they are just getting into the Super Hero thing. Well, I guess Asher and Isaiah are behind. Sammy is a little ahead of the game when he requests, "Pi-man!" (Spiderman). I guess that's the big boys/baby brother dynamic that made Jesse the way he is!

  3. Great post! Personally, I'm really impressed! I love the way you write your blog!
