The Wizard of Oz - A New Phase
It's been almost exactly a year since Ezra's rocket obsession started, and he still loves rockets and plays with them and says he wants to be an aerospace engineer; however the latest fad in our home is dressing up like The Wicked Witch of the West.
This photo is actually of his *old* costume - his new one is a full-length woman's skirt which he wears up around his neck. Then he asks someone to throw water on him, at which point he re-enacts the scene in the movie where the Wicked Witch melts. I think he's done this about 200 times. His favorite activity now is to go out in the hall with Little Brother, who wears a black strappy cocktail dress over his clothes, and carries a huge blue kitchen broom. Then they wait for passers-by in our building to comment, scream, run away, etc.
