Do you remember that wonderful sense of heady intoxication you felt experiencing some of life's simplest pleasures? You know, like getting to stay up late on a dusky summer night chasing fireflies, or that amazing sense of wonder and excitement at the sight of your Christmas tree all lit up? Tonight, a glimmer of that magical anticipation resurfaced when I was fortunate enough to hear Hannah excitedly confide to her brother that she was planning to be a vampire for Halloween, a scant 179 days from now (I know, it totally snuck up on me, too)! Not one to be caught unprepared, Logan promptly responded, "I going be a peh-wit." Following this, um, unusual announcement, he added the following codicil: "A good peh-wit." So that evil parrot Halloween outfit that immediately popped into your head when he first mentioned his costume choice...forget about it.

  1. So this morning, as I contemplated Logan's bizarre costume decision, it occured to me he was not saying "parrot", but "pirate". To test my hypothesis, I pulled up a picture of a pirate on the computer and asked Logan to tell me what it was. He told me it was "A pie-wit, a wheel (real) pie-wit!" I apologize for the mistranslation. Please consider this a formal retraction of any and all references to my son asking to be dressed in feathers.
