More (five minute friday)

"I want much more than this provincial life!!!!!"

Anybody else have that tune on repeat? It's one of Damien's new favorite songs.  Actually, all the songs from Beauty and the Beast are his new favorites. If they're not playing on his Echo, he's belting them at the top of his lungs.  I tell myself, "At least it's something besides Aladdin."

This kid makes me laugh.  If you have seen him for ten minutes, you've seen him in at least three costumes.  He started out just loving dress-up, but he has a heck of an imagination.  He's put together some clever outfits.  He wandered by one time wearing a vampire cloak and a pirate hat, struck a pose and said, "Look! I'm George Washington!!"

Yeah, he kind of was.

He doesn't even need "real" costume pieces.  He's wanted an "Aladdin turban" for a while.  I looked online, but they were more than I was willing to pay for a dress-up thing.  Then as I was surfing, I found some chemo turbans -- a dozen for under $25.  He was thrilled.  Next thing I know, he's asking me to help him put a second pair of gloves on.  I look up, and see this:

He took the blue cap and ran with it, grabbing clothes from his dresser.  The "belt" is his brother's long-sleeve t-shirt, and the yellow glove wrists are the "genie cuffs."    One chemo cap inspired an entire costume...and of course, a song and dance routine.

This kid makes me laugh more than anything else in life.
