My youngest son is a hilarious kid.
So what do you do as a parent when all he wants to dress up as for Halloween is food? His birthday falls just three days after the holiday, and all he wanted a few years back was a “hotdog” costume. Really? Really. So, I obliged him and found a “hotdog” costume and since it was after Halloween, I think it cost me less than $10. He was overjoyed!
So this year, while we were trying to figure out costumes, I asked him what he wanted to be. He said, “Ketchup”. I just looked at him for a minute. “Or I would settle for Mustard.”
This kind of personality, dear readers, is what my fun little children’s book is based on. While Zeek is not Dimitri, he loves the same dinner, his mom, and is very compassionate and sensitive to other people while having a crazy and fun personality. Zeek is just as curious and motivated as my son.
I love this kid with all my heart…as I love my other three. He just has that kind of aura about him that makes people gravitate to him. Ketchup or not. By the way, I talked him into being a dark overlord type character for Halloween. lol
