Boss


Griffin held me hostage for the better part of a day last week, until I produced a "Robin the Boy Wonder" costume for him. He'd gotten the idea in his head a couple of weeks before, so we paid a visit to our good friend, Google Images, until we found just what we were looking for. The costume didn't turn out exactly as I'd hoped, mostly because Griffin was breathing down my neck the whole time, saying, "Hurry up, Mummy! I need it, I need it!" No matter though, Griff loves his costume and wears it every day. As a matter of fact, we played "Batman and Robin" for most of the day yesterday. This consisted mainly of Griffin bossing me around, telling me that I could not drive the Batmobile (only Robin can), that I could not throw Batarangs (again, only Robin), and that I basically had to do whatever he said. I just love the Griff is so into costumes, just like Camden was at this age (and still is to this day).

I seem to recall a little girl breathing down MY neck as I worked feverishly to sew Mandy clothes for her doll. Griffin comes by his down-neck-breathing honestly. Cute costumes your boys have.

That's funny Aunt Jean, because I thought of that while making Griff's costume. I seem to remember a long, red sundress with a matching head kerchief!

The costumes are back! I love seeing them...look at those blue eyes behind that black mask! Beautiful!

Cheryl said...

So cute! And you are so crafty! I don't think I could EVER figure out how to sew a costume.

Heather said...

Kirsten you would be amazed at what you can do with fuseable hem tape. I only did a tiny bit of sewing with needle and thread. The rest was just cutting & fusing. :) I would have liked to have spent more time on it, but Griff was a tad bit impatient!

Hello Heather,

Those costumes are so cute!! It's so nice that your children get to "live" their dreams and let their imaginations soar!! How I miss those days with frilly dresses everywhere, and I mean everywhere, even on a beach vacation when my daughter was little. Now she's a teenager...em completely different times now!!

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for sharing that excellent pizza crust recipe awhile back. I finally got around to trying it last Friday night and my whole family loved, loved, loved it. It will certainly be our standby pizza crust from now on!!

Hi Larissa ~ I'm glad you liked the pizza crust...that is the recipe I use every Friday, which means I'll be firing up my bread machine in just a bit here, to make a batch. I've also tried many different recipes, but this is by far my favorite. I usually make pizza for the little guys (half cheese/half pepperoni...yawn!) and then try something different for my husband and myself. Our recent favorite is chopped artichoke hearts, thinly sliced red onion, and black olives...yum!

Don't you just love having boys? I adore their ability to play with abandon -- no embarrassment at all.
