Cutest fish ever

So, I was at the salon last week when my hairdresser got a phone call from her deployed husband that was "very important." Once she got off the phone, I asked her if everything was OK. Everyone was alright; but she had committed to doing a wedding on Saturday and her husband was calling to tell her that the childcare facility on base was going to be closed (Labor Day weekend). She was panicking because all of her back-ups were away or working on Saturday, and she had no one to watch her 6-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son.

I kindly offered to help out ... Brian could watch them! I was going to be at the shop Saturday, but didn't see any reason why Brian wouldn't jump at the chance to watch three kids (who would say no to that?). My hairdresser visibly relaxed, and then proceeded to give me pertinent details about the kids and to thank me profusely (ahh, I get all the gratitude and none of the work).

As we talked, she mentioned that she had an old costume that was her son's that she thought would fit Allen this year (of course she was referring to Halloween. I was just thinking how cute Allen would look in the costume). She brought the costume over on Saturday when she dropped off the kids. We tried it on that evening ....


I decided to try it on as well, but I think I just looked scary ...

Here's a video of Allen "swimming" and shaking his tail ...

Isn't he the cutest fish you've ever seen??

He is absolutely the cutest fish I've ever seen.

Funny story: a friend of ours handed down a puppy costume. I took the most adorable picture of Henry wearing it and Leslie submitted it to the local magazine for the "cute kid picture" page (in like February). The fall edition comes out and there he is on the page discussing safe Halloween costumes!

That's your son...Bingo, right? (I'm trying to do Dora from Nemo, but I can't remember the real names she calls Nemo.)
