It’s about that time again! That time when I make my family dress up in a group Halloween costume while I can still bend them all to my will. 😉 Kidding. (Or am I?) Actually, Henry is super into the group costume thing but he’s starting to want to call the shots when it comes to exactly what we are. We have a few options on the table, but we need help deciding!
First, he wanted to be the Paw Patrol. Luckily we were able to quickly steer him away from that (because uggghhhh) and towards some Disney. So then he wanted to be Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy. Which would be so fun! Then one morning he woke up and wanted us all to be snowflakes, because I think he had a dream about it. Hahahaha! Next time you need a good laugh, have a conversation with a two-year-old when they’re trying to describe a dream. The snowflake thing faded and now he’s saying he wants us to be the Berenstain Bears. Which is actually a pretty killer idea! I just have two qualms. One: if he wore the Brother Bear costume to school by himself for their Halloween parade, it might be hard to tell what exactly he is. Brother Bear just wears a red collar shirt and blue jeans. And two: Mama Bear basically wears a muumuu. And after last year, wearing a baggy pajama dress on my one-month-postpartum body, it sure would be swell to wear something a little more formfitting. Vain? Yes. Honest? Definitely.
So! Any great ideas for a family of four? Ryan realllly wants to do Wreck It Ralph, with Ryan as Ralph, Henry as Fit-It Felix, Maggie as Vanellope, and me as a Nicelander. A little obscure but it would be rad. I have kind of always wanted to go as breakfast, and be eggs/toast/bacon/waffles. But that might be a little challenging. Help us, gang! What’s your costume vote? xoxo
