I know my little guy is a baby no more when he struggles out of my embrace to join the other kids to run from door to door doing trick or treat as he did earlier tonight and basks in the attention when others stop him for a photo-op (again, he played superman because he refused to wear any head gear on 2nd try).
Just today he also pulled a Halloween kinda trick on me. He put double-sided tape on the notes (money) I left on the table after seeing my expression when I first saw him attempt a small bit of tape and pretended to drop my favourite air-head hair brush into the (toilet) bowl, obviously enjoying see me go “no no no” and using various sorts of distractions, thankfully one worked in the end. Phew.
Yet these little antics he get up to, as annoying as they can be remind me of how it is part of his growing up and psyche of a 20-month-old toddler and counting.
Happy 20 months my little man. Mama & papa are so proud of your little and big achievements.
