Yesterday Arthur realized that he didn't have a costume his size. He was really upset, in part cause his homemade Halloween costume was since dismantled and, ahem, discarded. So, as Jessica reported it to me, he put on his shoes and coat and went out and sat in the van, waiting for someone to take him to the store to get a costume. A wonderful gesture of stubbornness and ambition. I got home and went out to find him in the van, still sitting there on the verge of tears. Eventually he came inside and later that night Jess went on the iPad with the boys for some costume shopping. Both boys are getting a Spiderman costume, Art's will have those built in muscles to help beef up his skinny 6-year-old look.
