This year, Mc got to choose what he wanted to be for Halloween - it's so fun preparing for holidays with a 2 year old! This is the first year he's really understood enough to get excited. So when McCord said he wanted to be a dinosaur, I couldn't wait to make something for him that he would be excited to wear. Of course Wade got a matching costume too! We've worn the costumes so much, they've been in the wash 3 times already, and Halloween's not even here yet.
There's something about a little boy wearing a costume. I've received so much joy watching Mc and Wade play in their costumes knowing I've given them the opportunity to feel invincible, powerful, playful, and truly magical. I know the day is quickly approaching when my boys will no longer want to wear something I've made for them, but for now, the laundry and dishes can wait while I create something special for my two little ones. This brings me such joy!
