… mom to Captain America and Iron Man!
Isn’t this hilarious? I must admit that I really, really, really — and I mean, really — dislike character apparel. You won’t find Diego, Spider-Man, or Tigger in the twinnies’ closet … at least not while I still pick out their clothes. I can’t even explain why I don’t like characters on clothing. It’s just not my thing. In years past, Pottery Barn Kids has been my best friend for costumes … and the boys have always dressed alike. But when the Halloween pop-up shop opened in the shopping center near our house — where we eat all the time, grocery shop, and have their hair cut — I was done for. There’s nothing like a 12 foot Frankenstein and a cackling rocking witch to draw a kid’s attention. And my little buddies love their costumes so much … that I’m actually kind of into the characters, too. That’s just between us, OK?
