    Chicken, Dragon, it’s all the same

    October 30, 2007

    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.
    D: What????
    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.

      Heck a good mommy-neur (sounds like mommy manire) would have him go as a Mommy Needs A Cocktail shot glass. That way you could write off the costume, the candy and the whole Halloween shebang as advertising.

      But is it also true you’ll be passing out shot(glasse)s for tomorrow nights revelers?

      Enjoy the hordes and let’s hope the forest doesn’t decide to fall on anyone 🙂

      Any advice on how to get an very unwilling 2 1/2 year old into a Robin costume? Conversely, his soon-to-be five-year-old brother won’t take the damn Batman costume off.

      So you say you love two year olds? Want one?

      I LOVE the chicken suit!!!!! It is absolutely refulgent. Does he still “bock”? And now a duck too. I can’t wait for next year’s calendar…..hint, hint.

      Kate, I didn’t get it from the context. What is refulgent? Colour me curious (Canadian)

      witchypoo, it’s another word for brilliant. should you ever need to take the GRE, you will be pleasantly surprised that you now know that word. Feel free to use it, it is very fun to say out loud.
