Driving me nuts.

"Avast ye," Henry shouted at everyone on Halloween replied, and everyone replied, "Sebastian?"

This picture was taken a half hour after Henry refused to go trick-or-treating, screamed at the sight of his pirate costume, refused to wear the eye patch and hat, and threw the handmade sword to the ground and head-butted his mother in the pelvis. And lo, his mother wept actual tears, such was her bitter disappointment. But then he got over it and got dressed, and she didst feel silly about the crying. Yea.

I've started just to give my child--who suddenly became a toddler--candy when she gets upset. It calms her right down. I think to myself, "why don't other mothers do this?"

Just thought I'd share that little tip.

Someday, he'll be sad that the didn't wear the eyepatch. You can tell him about this and he will regret, oh yes.

That is the Captain Feathersword get-up isn't it? My 3yo had one last year and wouldn't wear the eyepatch either. Plus it was snowing and she had to wear a snowsuit and a stocking cap under the whole deal. She looked like Marlon-Brando-as-Captain-Feathersword. And she insisted her face be painted like a cat.You're brave wench for allowing a sword to accompany. Oh how children love to desecrate our perfect holiday fantasies...

I'd just to thank you for using my favorite joke as your subject line. We're quite the pirating family (sword fights with pipe insulation replace Candyland games), and appreciate all who do their part to help fight global warming.
