Man Mischief

Last Friday at Dawson's school they celebrated books. Each kid was supposed to come dressed as a character from their personal favorite literary masterpiece. I was a little nervous... my mind went straight to Amelia Bedilla, Ballerina Kitty, Fancy Nancy... all the girly books. I told Dawson I could be in charge of helping with his costume (gah! stress!), but he needed to pick what to be... I was at a complete loss. But he didn't hesitate one little bit- he knew immediately he had to be Curious George!

How perfect. That is SO him, I can't believe its never crossed my mind! He is quite the explorer... with all the best intentions...

Thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU, Rachel Hunter, for the wardrobe loaner. It could not have been more fitting or perfect... and I know I am biased, but seriously!?!?!? He is the most adorable thing I've ever seen.

And I just have to say, in case I haven't mentioned how thankful I am lately... my kids are in heaven having their daddy around so much more now.

Mom just can't make lizard catchers quite the same as he can...


Ew.

And speaking of 'man'ners... and the utter lack thereof... I couldn't resist sharing this shot of the McDermott men at the dinner table last night... sporting their matching spaghetti sauce smears across their face as they inhaled their dinner.

Oh, Boys.

Can't live without them.

He looks seriously adorable. I love the tail, it makes me laugh whenever I see one of my kids run down the hall with it attached to the rear of their jammies! :)
