Yesterday I did some oh-so-reassuring internet searching on the personality of the Virgo child. I have to say, it freaked me out a little. I don't completely prescribe to the preachings of the zodiac, but I do believe that there is a grain of truth to them. Hopefully that grain is only the best of what can be said about 'Rad's personality based on his sign. I read my sister the descriptions for her kids and she agreed with what they had to say a little too much for my comfort. Do you put any stock in the zodiac? Are you like your sign?
I have been on the hunt this week for pieces for Connor's Halloween costume and I think we're pretty much there. This is his base layer:
Couple that with black pants and a black hat with ears and you've got 'Rad's official first Halloween 'stume. I'm a little bummed that I won't be around to trick or treat with my nieces and nephews, but Connor's just donning his costume just for show anyway so show off we will!
Speaking of hats with ears, I don't think you can go wrong when you put animal appendages on headgear. They're all the rage and my kid must stay current, so:
Just as Connor goes through his growth spurts and fussy times, I feel like I'm going through periods of thoughtlessness. That's one reason I haven't been posting much lately - I can't come up with anything to talk about. I can't tell you how many times Z will comment on something on TV and I'll look at him blankly and say, "What'd they say?" even though I was watching right along with him. He can even be talking directly to me and I'll be looking at him but not processing a word that's being said. Is this part of mommy brain? Does this have to do with the rewiring of my brain the accompanies becoming a mom? Should I be legitimately worried about being this scatterbrained? Maybe I shouldn't be so worried - being scatterbrained was a preexisting condition.
