I want to be a dragon!

A few weeks ago, two of our young neighbors were playing outside dressed like dragons. Those were their Halloween costumes from last year, and I tried to explain to my son what this was all about. So it shouldn’t have come as a surprise when, a bit later, we asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween and he answered: “A dragon!”.

At first, I thought, he doesn’t even know what a dragon is! But then looking back, he does. We used to sing “Puff the Magic Dragon” to him all the time, and we read again and again the book we have about that song. He even named his favorite Lego man “Jackie Paper”, and the name sticks to this day. So I guess his choice wasn’t that far-fetched. Now the catch was to find a way to dress him like a dragon.

Zak found the solution, at Ikea. It required a bit of work, but he finished making the costume last night, just in time, since our son has been invited to a Halloween party this afternoon. I don’t have any photos yet, but he will be mighty cute, I can tell you that!

Now if only I knew what to do about Saturday’s Halloween candy…
