I was so excited to attend his school’s Halloween party on Halloween since I haven’t spent much time there with him. I loved seeing all the other kids, him in costume, and watching the teacher/student interactions.
When I arrived, Jameson jumped up out of Cara’s lap and over to me. We were waiting to start the parade, so we sang some songs and then did a dance. Jameson seemed a little out of sorts, already in his costume.
Jameson put his blanket on the cots and all the kids lined up and out to the central area to begin the parade through the rooms.
Okay, it was really scattered. It must have been their ages, but there wasn’t a lot of structure to our parade. I took hold of Jameson’s hand since he seemed a little lost and we went through just a couple rooms before returning back to ours.
I think that he was a little warm in the costume actually, and when we got back to the classroom he cried a little trying to unzip himself from the costume, poor thing!
I helped him out of the costume, and everything was immediately better. Also, it was snack time!
They gave the kids cups with a little apple juice in it, and Jameson did really well! I was impressed, since at home he was dumping water on the floor from cups on purpose.
After about 3 refills (about half a cup of straight apple juice), I suggested maybe he might want water next instead hehe! 😉
And here’s Mr. Nathan again, smirking when he saw me taking photos of him!
I also got a picture of his Star of the Month board. He was showcased during October, so Halloween was his very last day on the board.
And I finally captured a smile from Jameson! I commented to another mom there that I could finally put away my camera and she laughed and said she does the same thing. We are all the same, and all different, us moms!
I did escape before snack time was over so that I didn’t need to clean up. I had to get to work, and also change into my own costume.
Here is my team, much bigger than just a few months ago. It was a good time, and we walked into the work cafeteria blasting some Spice Girls.
