Having reservations

performance anxiety

This “Little Indian” is putting forth his bravest face; Grandma says he was a little nervous about the school play. Through his trail of tears, we see a glimpse of a smile.

(Thank you Ann! No wonder you are a proud Grandma.)


Lederhosen me alone


Mom set out to honor her husband’s heritage by dressing the kids in traditional German garb; her son, a strapping young lad at only 18 months old, set out to let everyone know just how displeased he was to wear his very own pair of homemade lederhosen. OktoberMess!

(As mentioned, Rachael crafted this costume for her son. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since she also has a side business making the most adorable tutus ever! You can find more about this crafty mama and fun ideas for the kids at Thanks, Rachael!)

Penguin is MAD-agascar



Heaven knows what could perturb this sweet lil’ penguin… Sea lion? Killer whale? Or maybe running out of candy before Halloween ended?

(Thanks, Ginger! I have to say a penguin is a pretty unique Halloween costume for a little one – love it).

Tiggerific Tantrum

tiggerific tantrum

RAWR, we’re loving this fierce and feisty Tigger in all her makeup-smeared glory. Mom Rhiannon assures us that the tantrum was not long-lived; a smiling happy-go-lucky Tigger emerged just a few minutes later.

(Thanks, Riahnnon!)

Who shot the sherriff?


Mom Jennifer reports that they lovingly called him “The Reluctant Sherriff” during the hoopla of last year’s Halloween. Not once did he lighten up during the full day of fun parties and events. She is crossing her fingers that this year’s astronaut costume is received a little more enthusiastically.

(Thanks, Jennifer! Besides picking out unappreciated Halloween costumes, Jennifer runs an awesome boutique where you can get eco-friendly products for babies, kids and home. Her blog, Baby Grows Green, offers easy and afforable tips about living green for the aspiring eco-parent.)

Not clowning around



This poor kid certainly did not intend it, but his bright and cheery costume juxtaposed against his dark and dreary mood had me howling in laugher – which is exactly what effective clowns do. Well played, kiddo!

(Thanks, Sara. In addition to torturing her son every Halloween, Mom Sara runs and is a blogger to boot! We bow down not only to her multi-tasking but to these adorable & cheeky t-shirts for babies and kids — this one could be the official t-shirt for!)

Angry to the MAX


The day will be better once Mom takes him out of the box.

Thanks to Mom Carissa for the photo and for her efforts in the OfficeMax “A Day Made Better” promotion to support teachers. Carissa’s blog is one of more than 30 sites helping to spread the word about teacher-funded classrooms and is hosting a giveaway for a deserving teacher. Enter here by Sunday, October 4, midnight PDT.
