Sign him up...

Rickie's biggest dream is to be in the army...he takes it very seriously as you can tell....his IV bag comes in very handy because it looks like a grenade!

What's so funny with kids is that when they put a costume on they ARE that character...he was wearing the army costume tonight and he was strutting his stuff, standing tall and acting very brave--of course he couldn't hug me in uniform!! So, I'm playing along with him and I merely suggest he wear it tomorrow when he goes in to do his PFT'S. You know, make him stronger...or give him more confidence, and he looks up at me with disbelief and says...why would I do that and that is dumb mom...you can't walk into the hospital with a costume on.

I thought for sure he would play along, I was getting into it!! A little bit later he said to me...do you really think it would make me stronger?

I preceded to tell him it absolutely would, and he could make his mind up in the morning. Of course, we'd have to put the camo paint on his face...and maybe they wouldn't even recognize him!

I will play along, and do what ever makes him happy tomorrow...because if he passes his test tomorrow....no.more.Iv's!!!







*Army costume with built in muscles- priceless*

He certainly looks tough and strong. The glasses are especially cool.
