Chapter Three: "How to be a Cool Dad (or Mom)"


Do this. Halloween is coming. Do you have your costume ready? I have asked my wife several times what she will be dressing up as this year. No reponses. As you get older, it's the pieces of your childhood that you can keep that will make you a cool parent.

Chloe likes Star Wars. She's not obsessed with it, but she knows who is who and likes knowing it. She is tapping my arsenal for entertainment. Last week I picked up two new DVDs. I saw the classic "Young Frankenstein" and the movie "Labyrinth" for Chloe. She was ready for "Labyrinth" and I was too. If you've never seen it, check it out. It's like a modern fairy tale... well, pretty modern anyway. There are subtle hints here and there that you are watching a movie from 1986. There's a lot of synth music in the sound track, but it does hold up as a very timeless movie. I remember seeing it back in the eighties. I don't recall it being a blockbuster then, but it's got legs and it's still running after 20 years.

So will my wife get a costume? I don't know. She's pretty uptight. Whatever. I'll be the dad that ALWAYS dressed up and I will totally love being remembered that way.

from one princess slea to another princess leia: may the force be with you (and also the good candy). (but i am surprised that you didn't put her in YOUR favorite princess outfit ~ could be a little sick. Maybe Jen will wear that costume for you)

we don't know what we'll be for halloween this year. magda always goes back to being the blue guitarist from the daft punk video and as i said before, jude wants to be a tow truck driver.

I would have loved for my mom to have dressed up for Halloween, but she never did. She did a good job for me, and THAT I remember!
