Motherhood Moments: January

This month we got around to pulling a trunk out of storage for all the kid’s dress up clothes. It’s full to the point that it is difficult to latch shut! We might have to upgrade to a larger size! These kids definitely get a kick out of pretend play!

They have been having so much fun with it. I think that sometimes they spend more time in costume than in regular clothes! At least we know we’re getting our money’s worth out of Halloween costumes, though. Most years we buy a couple of extra costumes in November when all the Halloween stuff is on sale.

The costume obsession is nothing new though. Sian fell in love with his Superman costume when he was two, and ever since then we’ve had trouble getting him to dress like a “real” person. Fiona always followed suit- so it’s not uncommon to see a superhero and a princess running around the house playing tag, or sitting and coloring in the living room.

Last year, before we moved to Vegas, the kids got a couple of costumes for Christmas. When we were living in the temporary housing in January (during our house hunt) the costumes came in pretty handy. There wasn’t much around to play with, but they kept themselves entertained for hours each day running around outside dressed up. We got a few odd looks from some of the neighbors, but it was worth it just to see how much fun they were having!
