Real Stories From The Chaotic Front

Who Is He Again?

For those of you who only hear stories about my youngest three…There are plenty of stories about my oldest ones too… Gavin lived in Halloween costumes… He absolutely LOVED them… No matter what the time of year! If he loved them…Then I loved them. If he wanted to wear them out in public in December..He did.. I have a picture around somewhere with Gavin sitting on Santa’s knee in full Sonic the Hedgehog gear including the big pink belly and the mile high blue Mohawk. It was adorable. He wore a Batman cape to Pre-School for an entire year. He may still be wearing it if it hadn’t worn so thin in places and the seam tore at the bottom. It has now been relegated to my grandmother’s keepsake drawer..I don’t know which of us wanted to keep it more. His love for characters “as seen on TV and movies” did not stop with the costumes… He became the characters and adopted a new name every morning… He is very intelligent and was able to sustain the play acting very easily. He would, when in character, not answer to any other name…especially his own. I remember one day in particular. I received a call at work. I was pulled from a meeting to answer one very frantic call from his Pre-K teacher…Who is he today? I can’t remember because today was a hard one! He won’t answer or participate, or even turn his head when we call him Gavin…He’s sitting stoically at his table hands folded…and waiting….We’ve tried Batman, Superman, Sonic…. The answer…Benjamin Franklin Rodriguez…The full name only… (It is the name of a character from the movie “Sandlot”…)  Caleb is also a fan of costumes but hasn’t wanted to wear them out in public…(as often)  Any wonder why I have grey hair people???
