Halloween Preview

Papa took this photo of Sophie at her pre-K Halloween parade this morning. She was very surprised to see him there and proudly walked the parade route with a smile on her face the whole time.

She’s Daphne from Scooby Doo. She refuses to wear the accompanying orange wig, however. I don’t blame her. It’s too small and it’s made of really cheap and itchy synthetic fiber. Unfortunately, though, the costume just isn’t the same without the wig. I’d be very surprised if anyone knew who she was supposed to be, other than a cute curly-haired kid wearing a pink dress with a green chiffon scarf accessory.
She’s already announced that she’s going to wear her Minnie Mouse costume tomorrow. We’ll see how that goes.

Super Bowl? Super Boring!

After much bragging over the last few days that she was going to watch the Super Bowl, Chloe didn’t keep her word. “Scooby Doo” won the day, by a landslide.

She actually turned the channel to the big game. For all of five seconds. Didn’t even see one famous-for-being-funny commercial. And tuned out long before Tom Petty at halftime.

When I asked her if she wanted to watch, she responded, “Actually, I think I just want to watch Scooby Doo.” So much for having at least one football fan in the family.

So, instead of the Super Bowl, our evening show consisted of Sophie and Chloe dancing silly around the dining room table. Frankly, an infinitely more entertaining way to spend a Sunday night than watching a bunch of big guys tackle one another.

Go Giants! Oops – I mean, Go Girls!

Spending a lot of time with Chloe and Sophie over the last few months has also caused increased reminiscing on my part, to be sure.
