Becky's post on her blog reminded me tomorrow is Halloween and tonight is Fallapalooza at our church. It reminded me of all the times, I bought fluffy cutesy outfits. It doesn't last long when they're boys, girls. Hopefully, Diann will share her grandson as Elvis this year. I'm surprising my kids and dressing up as Snow White this year. A mother at Elle's school lent it to me, that should be fun. My older boys will be humiliated to the full, and that's always fun with teens.
Anyhoo, one Halloween, I made Jonah's costume. He was "James the Red Engine" because his school had a "No superhero policy", which now as a mother, I recognize as a no princess policy, but at the time, I went by the rules. And so we get there, and I have worked SO hard to paint this box, and Jonah won't go into class. He is wailing, "My COSTUME IS FROM THE GARBAGE!" ROFLOL Next year, he was Batman. I learned my lesson as a boy mom. Do not run onto a soccer field when they're hurt, and do not put them in cutesy costumes.
