Big Brother

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Around Halloween, we found out I was pregnant with my second child. Our 3 year old had already chosen his costume and when we told him we were pregnant, his response was, “I don’t want to be a big brother, I want to be a firefighter!”

dad and son carving pumpkinWhen we carved our Halloween pumpkins this year, my son told me that he thought a spider lived inside them. When I asked why, he replied, “Because there are a lot of cobwebs in here!”

army tankI was due with my second child in October, so when my family was discussing Halloween costume ideas I was almost ready to deliver. My son said, “Dad and I could be army guys.” Then he looked me up and down and offered, “You could be the tank, Mom.”
