Since Halloween, our household has also had a Batman, but fortunately Blake has only wanted to wear his costume on three occasions: Halloween, when his friend Ethan came over to play on Wednesday, and today, when his nursery had a fancy dress day in aid of Children in Need. Blake is also very insistent, whenever I go into role-play mode and ask him what strangers on the street will think when they see Batman running down the road, that he isn't Batman; "I'm just Blake," he says with insistency! Oh, right, I think, no more pretending then.
Here are some photos from Halloween (ahem, somewhat belatedly!), and today's costumes, accompanied by painted faces. This is the first time I think Noah has had his face painted, and at certain angles he looked sooo old with his thin little pirate moustache! Blake also seemed to take better care of his paint as Noah's looks extremely blurred in places.
Giving equal airtime to all the supermarkets...I didn't have any better bags for them but I figured if kids have been using grocery bags for years to collect Halloween candy, why not?!
Noah's clothes are covered with yogurt, and Blake sports a fetching high-waisted belt look.
As for our own big B, I hope that he's had a fun few days dressing as Batman. Everyone kept wondering why Noah wasn't Robin! With that, there's no more pretending that I'm anything but a tired, yet still pretty Super, Mommy. Good night!
