Singer Darius Rucker Retweets photo of 3-year-old Halloween version

There was no real science behind why I choose to dress my three-year-old son Brooks as country and pop icon of laidbackness Darius Rucker. Brooks just started learning to play guitar, has taken a shine to Rucker’s style, and Rucker is part of a series of cute brown-skinned guitar-playing men that my son could play with a few accessories and a swirl of creative eyeliner. Also, I just thought it was funny.

You know who else thought it was funny? The actual Darius Rucker, or whoever runs his Twitter. The former Hootie and the Blowfish lead singer and now mega country star Retweeted my post about Brooks and his costume, and so far it’s been Retweeted about 17 times and liked more than 150 times. It’s sweet as a parent, particularly an adoptive mom who was not allowed to even post photos or his name online for more than two years after Brooks came to live here. Next year, he’ll want to pick his own costume. I hope that maybe he’s going to pick Mr. Rucker again. A lot of material to cover, you know.
