I told Axel I didn't have time to pull together a Harry Potter costume. I told him he needed to choose from something we already had.
"That's ok Mom," he said. As he waved the wand he bought for $3 at the book fair.
The kid wanted to be a character from a book. A series we've been reading together for the last 2 years. I didn't have time to find a pair of round glasses?! Right...sometimes there just aren't enough hours for everyone.
Today I stopped at Target for last minute preparations when I happened to stroll through the Halloween clearance.
Sticking out from the rack - amidst a bunch of crappy costumes - stood Harry Potter. Just one of him. In Axel's size. It included the spectacles.
Bought it! I did have time for him after all. He's my main man. Always will be.
