Never too early…

…to order up the Halloween costume.

David has decided that his new adult career will be a “SWAT Man”. Not a police officer. That’s too generic a title for him.

He’s been on this SWAT thing for about 6 months now. If you were to ask him “what does a SWAT person do?” He would respond, “He saves the people!”

David has always had the compassion gene as the overriding emotion he lives by. I try to preserve that quality in him. He’s always the first to help a child that has fallen down. He comforts children who cry. He seeks out friends who are like him, and those who are very unlike him. He isn’t afraid to put himself out there and worry about whether he will be judged.

I find it all so endearing, and frankly… I am often jealous. I remind myself that I was once the same child… but as we grow older and life imposes the good and the bad, sometimes those qualities get lost or forgotten.

I would love for David to grow up and find passion in something he feels he was “born to do”.

Perhaps a teacher, doctor, fireman, or humanitarian.

But for this Halloween, he will be a SWAT Man

…saving the world.

  1. I have not even begun to think about Halloween. Each year I am caught off guard. Bad mommy. Until she “get’s it” and actually asks to be something I probably wont do much.

  2. I already have my daughter’s costume, too! She announced three weeks ago that she would be Snow White.Swat man is much more original than a princess. That costume is darling!

  3. Love the Swat outfit!! Too funny!I got a chuckle out of “never too early”. I’ve had Cole’s giraffe for nearly 5 weeks now – LOL! It may not even fit him by the time Halloween rolls around! –jaclyn
