After The Great Halloween Outfit Argument of 2006, we got a little proactive this year. Not really proactive, per se. More like we bought the first two outfits we saw the first time we went into a retail establishment after the Halloween costumes were out. The Boy decided he was going to be a Dragon Tail which is actually a dragon. He, not unlike last year, put the outfit on in the middle of the store and went around biting people’s legs. I had to explain to him that dragons actually KISS people, not bite them.
God I love two year olds. They will believe ANYTHING.
I then casually threw a duck outfit on the counter by the register when my husband wasn’t looking. When he saw it, he got slightly annoyed.
D: What is THAT?
K: A duck.
K: A duck. See the duck’s bill. Come on, don’t you think The Baby make a cute duck?
D: As long as The Boy is a dragon I guess I can tolerate The Baby as a duck.
Except that once The Boy found his old chicken costume, he has decided that it is going to be a foul, I mean fowl Halloween.
He is insisting that he wear his chicken costume again. In fact, he has been wearing it for the last week. Just randomly.
Oh, the squawking that’s gonna happen tomorrow night. Lord help me.
