One of my FAVORITE routines right now are the bedtime rituals...Max either wants to swim or fly like peter pan into his bed. When he swims, we carry him so he is facing the ceiling and he moves his arms like he is swimming in the air (like in the movie Hook). We are suppose to move according to his strokes: big strokes make him supposedly fly faster and we have to move as smoothly and quickly as we can up the stairs in a stroke-like manner, and of course we can relax a bit with his smaller strokes. We are also required to make water swishing noises to compliment his stroke patterns. It is so hilarious, and we all end up laughing our heads off. Justin flies on my back and we usually end up crashing somewhere. Oh, the memories!
So you may well imagine what they wanted to be for Halloween!
I figured that since Peter Pan didn't have a mother, Justin should make his own costume. He did a FABULOUS job (with a little help) ....what a creative mind he has! Of course he knew just exactly how he wanted it!
Max was a NATURAL--WILD INDIAN! (Loin cloth, compliments of Justin's ingenuity and our washcloths & clothespins).
