One day we were at the mall and Taylor decided he wanted to be a scary monster for Halloween. We are all for dressing up for candy, but we're really not into the scary stuff. Taylor is very scared of monsters right now, so I asked if he'd like to be Max, from Where the Wild Things Are. Of course he did! Can you see the disappointment on Jim's face when Taylor told him later that evening. He has been a football player for the last 2 years and Jim was definitely expecting that again. I could see it all over his face. He slumped, and said, really T, you want to be Max? Yah, daddy, I want to be a scary monster. We thought by obliging that he would finally realize that monsters aren't real and they are just people, just like him dressed up in costumes. Well, you know me-ever the ambitious one. I set out to make his costume. Cost me all of $4.46 plus tax!
