Last night, I finally created an "October" calendar for Lucas so we can countdown to 2 exciting days this month: 1) his birthday on the 15th, and 2) Halloween!
Today, he counted down to Tom, me and his nanny (on separate ocassions) that there are FIVE days left until his 6th birthday. We need to get our act together -- we have plans with our family for the following weekend, but will mark his birthday, this coming Monday, with a small gathering.
As for Halloween, Lucas can't decide on his costume...Simba won't due because he refuses to wear the head gear, so I'm not sure that the alternative (Curious George) will fair any better. We'll see how this pans out. He's more than excited about the notion of trick of treating!
