Who the heck ever thought plastic bags were a good idea. Better yet, why don't I follow my husband's council to make trips? Well once their in the house and I leave without the toddler, the screaming commences and if I leave repeatedly to avoid the problems of attempting to be a superhero grocery bag carrier, then I need to watch for the hug that will be thrust upon me and the repeated outbreaks upon my immediate departure.
So, as usual, with children there are no solutions, but it doesn't keep it from being a laugh a minute as I put my own mortality and imperfection back into proper perspective. I'm certain the dramatic trip to the grocery will continue to be necessary, and I'm sure that by the time he graduates high school he'll actually be helping rather than 'helping'.
But since we all aspire to superhero status, I'll put the question to you. What's your record and how many can you carry?

After watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown with my kids again last night I was reminded of the joys of my youth. Mom made all our costumes; some quite elaborate. I'm much more grateful of her talent this year as our costumes aren't quite up to snuff. Long after Halloween was over we'd up and raid the attic rack for another adventure in dress up for no particular reason. Much to my delight, my boys find great fun in doing the same. So as enjoyable as it is to receive the chocolate milk duds, twizzlers, and nerds, all the more I relish in the coming generation finding pure and innocent joy in the humor, adventures, and imagination of youth.
