      As promised. Here they are. The Husband promised he would dress up for Halloween and so he did. Not bad eh? Notice the angry Evil Dr. Xan with his bowl of dismembered itchy fingers from naughty children. He was angry with me because I wanted him to bring the stethoscope since the outfit looked too generic for anybody to know he is a dentist.

    As with any child if his age, Xander is quite a curious boy. He has questions for everything and would try (almost) anything. We try to answer him as best as we can but sometimes if I don’t know the answer, I usually make one up and indulge him. One day in the car on the way to somewhere I cannot remember now… X: Mummy, how come that Uncle’s hair is like that? *points to an ah beng looking uncle by the road* Me: Oh that Uncle dyed his hair red.
