Sweatin' to the Oldies

I've been struggling lately with time management, energy, and the constant desire to sleep. One of my friends asked for some help with her new website's text and I was happy to oblige but it took me a while. She asked me about it a couple days after she sent the text over and I replied honestly. I said, "Well, I've had a really busy schedule of sleeping and resting and its tough to find time to fit the other things in." I realize this is a pathetic answer but I get points for honesty, right?

I'm happy to report that things are looking up. I'm feeling more energetic, the dry heaves are on their way out and I can survive a day without a nap. Progress is welcome in my life, even if it is minimal.

In light of my lack of inspiration, I pounced on my friend, Alyson's genius costume idea for her 1 and a half year old son, Cooper. She sent me a picture and I begged her to let me include it in a blog entry. She obliged. So, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the funniest costume I have ever seen on a child: Cooper Tunnel as Richard Simmons:


And, for good measure, here's one of Richard Simmons as Richard Simmons:

If anyone has ever seen a more hilarious, creative costume on a child, I invite you to share it. Go Alyson!


  1. that kid has the hair for it. does it naturally look that way all the time?

  2. Oh, my! That is hilarious!
    Glad you're feeling a bit better.
    Also, your article in Birmingham Parent on Back to School moms was great.

  3. OH MY GOD!!!!! Sorry, sometimes text abbreviations just aren't enough. You're right, gotta love this one!!! Is Alyson handing out light yogurt as a treat?

  4. Save this photo for Cooper's teen years. It is possibly the best "blackmail photo" I have ever seen!

  5. Alyson definitely wins the award for best child costume. Absolutely HILARIOUS!
