32. That uniform is awesome!

He sure looks studious enough to follow through on his ambition.

One of my sons wanted to be a "blocker" when he was around 3 or 4, due to the fact that he was very impressed with the road workers wearing the orange vests, who evidently were "important" enough to block traffic.

And the Ghostbusters phase was a blast. I bought two beige, toddler-sized utility uniforms & I painted the logo on the back of each, along with arm patches. They had the proton packs, ghost-traps, & ghost meters. My sister once caught a glimpse of my sons using the toilet, side by side, with my younger son saying, "Don't cross the streams!"

My next favorite phase was Dragnet, the Dan Aykroyd & Tom Hanks version. Yes, they wore suits, but very inexpensive ones. I made the badges & id cards, which were crucial.

Savor your son's age, Dave, because time goes by too quickly.

Thanks for all that you guys do to make everything nice for us! Please check in more often; we like to know that you care. Plus, we like chatting with you & getting your points of view.
