All Year Round

Halloween is here!  Every year I dress up with my kids and I love it.  I especially love planning with my 6 year old son. He gets to choose who or what he wants to be and I ask him about what mommy should be and this year what his 8 month old baby brother should be.  Imagination fun! My son, like many boys is a super hero maniac.  Truly he is a Marvel expert, he knows all the characters, their powers, and their stories. It is pretty remarkable how much he knows about these characters. In the past I have been super girl, bat girl and this year with my fingers crossed I am hoping to pull off Storm (an X-men character), at my sons request. As I was searching old costumes trying to figure out how I was going to make Storm, I came across my old Supergirl costume. This was my first costume that I wore when I dressed up with son who was 1 month old at the time. I remember being so excited to be a mommy. I remember the big dreams I thought of for my child. I remember planning the type of mother I wanted to be. I couldn’t wait for him to be aware and involved and excited about being silly and dressing up. Now that time is here…He is uber involved and opioninated, super excited about dressing up, his school party and of course the trick or treating. As I listen to him remind me that I need a white wig, I begin to think…being a mom is like being a super hero! We always come in to save the day. Know matter how old or young our children are MOMS are the super heroes  with the multiple powers, the ability to be in 5 places at one time, juggle the heavy loads with the ability to make them seem as light as a feather, and simply be there in a blink of an eye when help is needed.  I never realized that my mom dressed up all year round, as Super Woman until I became a mom of 3 myself. To all the mommies who are planning, dreaming, sacrificing, working hard, carrying heavy loads and trying to give their best, I love your costume! You are beautiful! Thank you mommy for being a Super Woman all year round, every year. I have studied your character, powers and life stories and I just hope to gain some of your super powers. Have you complimented your moms costume lately?
