Sunny the Unicorn.

Monday was the day that started it all, National Talk Like a Pirate Day. I (happily) handed dinner over to my hubby half way through making it when I realized...we needed to be Pirates! What followed was a simple 3 sentence exchange between S and myself at the dinner table. S: "What is tomorrow going to be?" Me: "I don't know, what do you want it to be?" S:"Clown day!" 
That was that. 

This week I ate dinner with a pirate, giggled madly with a clown, witnessed a black cat try to climb our tree, was in awe of a beautiful sweet little fairy, and tried my very best to keep my patience while begging a certain unicorn for "just one more" picture. It was a good week to be mama, indeed.
The three most important things that I learned this week:
1. You don't have to spend a lot of $ (or any for that matter, my total this week on S's costumes was less $1...nylon's for the fairy wings that we made.) or bring them anywhere fancy schmancy, you just have to have fun and use a little imagination.
2. Everything could/should/would have been SO much more fun with sparkles. yes, sparkles! Therefor, I need to stock up on glitter and sequins.
3. When your child asks, "so, what is tomorrow going to be?" Just say Tuesday! ;)
