Okay. I'm back. I was at a music educators conference for a couple of days, which meant my husband had to babysit the kids and creatures. (I think he did a good job, because everybody and everything is still alive.)
He told me a funny story though, that I have to share. Today was the day that my son presented his Abe Lincoln report to parents. (Yes, I'm bummed because I had to miss it!) My husband said Bubba got out of bed right away, dressed in his tight black suit, put on his Abe Lincoln beard, and donned a black top hat.
"You sent him to school like that?" I asked.
"Yeah, why not?" my husband said.
"Well, he was supposed to change at school, not run around all day dressed as Abraham Lincoln!"
"Oh," my husband said. "But he looked so cute, I didn't have the heart to tell him to change. You should've seen him on the bus. He was a mini-Abe grinning from ear to ear, looking out the window."
I'm sure it was quite a sight - a boy with a beard! Let's just hope that Bubba's not going to want to go to school in his Luigi Halloween costume!
