Flash back to the scene in Hope Floats where they are all sitting at the breakfast table and Travis is dressed like Kermit the Frog. Can you see it? I used to think that was just ridiculous. Who lets their kid dress up like an animal at the table?
Well, by kid #3, I do. As time goes by, I'm learning to let go. Some fights just aren't worth it. Instead of a frog, we have a puppy. Isaiah came down last night in his puppy costume--the same costume he has worn the last 2 years for Trick or Treat--barking and pointing.
Just for fun, I played fetch with my new puppy in the hallway. I am slowly learning that sometimes having a little fun is more important than avoiding the potential collision of fur and tacos. I don't think that in 20 years I'll remember the stain on the costume. I'm pretty sure I'll remember how cute Isaiah is in his puppy costume.
