Last year's Halloween was fun. We finished our costumes in advance. Our cutie girl was a little airbender. And her parents...well, we were really big nerds.
But this year, we're not so sure. Do we go lazy? Or do we go cute? Or are they not mutually exclusive?
See, my awesome neighbor gave me this random pink bunny suit (that a friend randomly gave her). If pink, plus bunny, plus suit makes you think of this, you're right on the money:
But I had kind of hoped to dress her up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Why?
- Claire's first word was doggie (and as Dorothy, she'd get to carry a cute little stuffed one around in a basket).
- Us two grown-ups would have plenty of costume options (witches, munchkins, flying monkeys) to choose from in case we want to make this an ensemble Halloween production.
- AND I almost don't want to pass up an excuse to buy glittery red toddler shoes (partly because I know she'll love them as much as I do—that girl loves her shoes).
But are we starting an odd tradition by dressing her up as a boy two years in a row?
Are we giving her future issues by dressing her up as a boy who will clearly have future issues because his parents dressed him up in a pink bunny suit?
Or is she just too cute like this for me to waste my time on anything else?
