Preschool Halloween Parade

Yesterday, Ilia and Alton’s school had a Halloween parade. I guess it’s official official…I’m a parent. All the kids came out and most of them kept their costumes on before the parade started. There were more than a few freaked out by the whole thing. All the kids in Alton’s class loved his costume and kept playing with the tail and touching the mane. One little kid like it so much, he just lost it and screamed, “I love you Alton!” and thing hugged the boy to death.

Here’s some pics. Bear with me. Somehow, I forgot my camera and had to use my phone:

The beginning of the parade. Ilia’s class went first.

Alton saw Ilia and went to be with her. His class went last, since they were the youngest.

Here’s a crappy video of the kids. During the parade they sang Halloween songs, but not all of them did it and there wasn’t much enthusiasm for it. You see Alton is next to me. They went around twice before he noticed me. When he saw me, he made a break for it. We marched with his class.

Alton could not get over the kid dressed like a vampire. He had fangs and blood and Alton wasn’t having it.

There were a million parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc there. I got to meet other parents. Oooh boy…some of them…wow! There was one lady there, that I swear used to be a porn star. There was this other couple, there were dressed like a total “power couple” and I totally see where their kid learned to be so damn annoying. One big difference from my old neighborhood, at least I’m in the average age among the parents. Living in Hollywood where most of the moms were 15 – 20 years old than me was weird.


Baby Boy is so sweet

I just dropped the kids off at school. Alton’s been there for about 2 months now, but up until last week, he’d cry every time I dropped him off. The teacher would take him to the gate so he can say goodbye as I drove off. Today, I took him to the playground and he said, “Bye!” and went to go play. There was a little boy there crying because his parents were leaving. Alton stopped, walked over to the little boy and patted him on the back. Then he took the kid’s hand and walked him over to the gate and waved the little boy’s hand. It was the cutest thing and the teacher was like, “Awwww, Alton you’re so sweet!”
