With Fall's big arrival..we are busy finalizing our Halloween costumes. Do your kids spend the whole year after Halloween planning for the next Halloween? Every day brings a new idea..and every day a sentence I hear is "mom, for Halloween I want to be....". We have heard it all, from Teletubbies to Care Bears, from Princesses to Fairies, from Cinderella to Snow White, and of course peanut butter and jelly sandwich(a BLT would be better - but I need one more kid).
Currently - they both want to be fairies. I am not sold on the idea. Would I be a really mean mom if I made them be what I want them to be...just this year. Next year they can be fairies in tights, tutus, wings and tiaras.
This year I want them to be Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton! Is that so wrong? Do you think they will let me? It is just so darn relevant and it would be hilarious! It is perfect...sweet Eloise dressed in her designer size 6 suit with an up-do and her "tina fey" glasses, designer shoes, lipstick, toy rifle on her back, dragging a dead moose behind her, and me dressed up as her pregnant 17 year old daughter....aahhh..the memories we will make. Oh, and silly Esther in her smart blond bob, her ugly 4T pant suit, cream pumps, Obama pin and Jed, dressed up as Bill on a short leash behind her.
No matter that the girls may not "get it" this year - why they are dressed up as current political figures. I am going for it - they can be fairies next year..heck they can be fairies on November 1st if they like..but October 31st is my night this year.
