So I think ry is past the age of really cute animal costumes. I was quite partial to the tom arma costumes. They were freaking adorable, but only for little babies/toddlers. preschoolers, not so much.
This year I asked him what he wanted to be for halloween, and he said a tree. And when I asked what kind of tree, he said purple. So i have to find a purple tree costume.
then he decided he wanted to be a cookie. I think I might have an easier time finding a cookie costume, but now I really want him to be a purple tree. so I am making the executive mommy decision to get him a tree costume. (ed. note: it’s actually been harder to find a cookie costume.)
sometimes having a kid is fun.
like when you get to buy legos. of course they are for him. but I can sit on the floor and build things, too. I am spending quality time with my son, even if he’s already gone to bed and I’ve got a joint in my hand. It’s all for the kid, I say.
okay. after searching for “tree costume” in google, I’m starting to get disgruntled. they’re all for “making” your own costume. what year are we in anyway, 1803? am I the mom from little house on the prairie? I’m not making a costume. I just want to click on something and buy it and have it sent to me.
this one is kinda cool. a little fancy and I don’t think ry would like it, but he’s only four and he has to do what I tell him.
hmpf. I will go buy a purple sweat shirt and sweat pants, stick leaves and twigs all over, and viola! a purple tree.
hey how would you like a sotd? it’s been awhile. albert hammond jr.
