Todays Perk of Being a Mama - Trick-or-Treat

This year Lil Bucky had 2 Halloween costumes. The first was a puppy dog - and was he a cute dog! He "woofed!" on command and eagerly took candy when visiting the neighbors. He was so good at taking candy from their bowls, that when we got home from trick or treating, he would answer the door when neighbor kids arrived and try to take candy from their bags (he didn't get that the kids weren't bringing candy to him).

Photos of the 2nd Halloween costume will come soon - we had a family outfit. :) But today's perk is Halloween, especially at this age. He is cute, we get to eat a bunch of candy!

Today's Perk of Being A Mama - Being a Mama

Wow. It has been a month since I posted? I guess I have been busy chasing around my rapidly growing toddler! :) He has learned how to run, so it is a whole new world.

Today's Perk though, is even when you are down, even when you are going through something that has no light at the end of the tunnel, even when you are just sad - one look at the sweet face of the baby you love solves (almost) all. That is until attacks the kitties, or insists on having every toy he owns on the floor of the family room (this someone only happens when Daddy is watching him) or when he throws a ball at the tv screen (which is naughty, but when he does it, I can't help but think "Man, he has a GOOD arm...").
