My boys all LOVE Halloween. Who doesn't love costumes and candy, right?! (we don't do the scary stuff). Brennan is going to be a vet, or as he puts it, "a pup doctor". Andrew is not sure what to be yet, but is excited about all of the possiblities out there. Parker is another story. He will HATE to be dressed up. If he was my first child, I probably wouldn't bother this year, but the older two are SO excited at the prospect of dressing up Parker, that I am not sure what to do. Nothing big or bulky. Nothing with a mask or a hood. Nothing requiring any face paint or make up. I don't want to spend a lot of money on a costume that he won't be happy in, ya know?
I have this dragon costume that my mom made my little brother David when he was small (so the costume is over 20 years old). I thought that it would work for Parker. I tried it yesterday, he screamed. I tried it again today, he hated it, but there was less screaming. I think that if I don't make him wear the hood, and if I keep "practicing" with him every day, maybe he will toerate it when Halloween arrives.

Here are some pictures of my grumpy dragon:

I remember Dave wearing that costume! I think either letting him skip (and be the one to help at home handing out the candy) this year, or going very gently would be the way to go for Parker......

The best gift is often the Abercrombie & Fitch we buy ourselves. Not to be unappreciative, but I love shopping way too much to believe someone (even with Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasseslist in hand) could ever do it as well as I do. When buying for ourselves, shopping can be a high. I’ll admit I’m addicted, but don’t think I have a problem. I know I know, the first step on the road to recovery is to admit you have a problem, but I just don’t see Christian Louboutin Boots that way. I’m content being a shoeaholic, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
