Six years ago, my now 11-year-old, John, was 5, the age Jake is now. Every day, John was in costume. I took Zorro to the grocery stores many times. One mother met my eyes and said I was lucky. If her son came dressed as his favorite character, he’d be wearing a giant yellow sponge. John’s favorite Zorro cape was his Aunt Caroline blanket. I tied that thing every day.
