Brenda Changes Costumes
I had mentioned Brenda picking out a monkey costume a while back. Well here is a picture of her in it.
Unfortunately as much as she liked it, it was too hot for her. After a couple of minutes of running around as a monkey, she started pulling at the costume and quickly went into a fit. We got her out as quick as we could. It probably did not help that she ran around the whole time she had it on.
Anyway that suit was a bit small to so we got the next size. The next size bigger did not have much better results so we decided that Miami is just to hot for any full body furry costumes.
Ala Ka Zam. You Love Me.
Back at Target we found a really cute witches outfit. We got it and Brenda likes it a lot. She got a little upset when we had to take it off of her. The problem is is it is all black. Not the safest color for a kid to be out in on Halloween. I am thinking I am going to buy some reflective tape. We already got Brenda a necklace that lights up, but it is very dim. Any ideas on increasing her visability would be a great help.
Brenda’s Bloody Fruit Bar
Brenda was eating a Edy’s grape fruit bar the other night and the results were so Haloweenee I just had to share them.
Library Toddler Day
Brenda went to a toddler day at the library and had a real good time. They had a Halloween theme. They read some Halloween books, sung some songs, and made ghosts out of cotton balls, tissue paper and string.
It was really good for her to see so many kids in her own age group. Her nephews are all older, and she is not in school or day care, so her exposure to peers has been limited to the playground and a few friends. I know -Brenda of Brenda’s Friends needs more friends. But that’s part of what Brenda’s Friends will be all about - learning to make and keep friends.
So after the event one mother and her daughter stuck around and played and looked at books. I read some books to Brenda while she played with bead mazes. The little girl wanted to play with them too. They played very nicely together. The little girl took off with one of the bead mazes, but they have three so it really didn’t faze Brenda.
Here they are playing together with the bead mazes.
I plan to go to more toddler days at the library.
