B is 11 months old tomorrow (sob, where did my baby go??), and even though he doesn’t have the faintest clue what Halloween is, he will wear a costume tonight! Don’t worry, we’re not going to take him trick or treating. Our neighborhood is having a little trunk or treat get together for all the neighborhood kids, which should be nice to attend so we can get to know some other kids and parents nearby.
I wasn’t planning on getting B a costume, but then the trunk or treat event came up, and I wandered into a thrift store near our house one day and found him a costume, for under $5. When I put it on him, I almost died from the cute (and I think he almost died from embarrassment/hatred):
Doesn’t he make the cutest lion EVER? he he he. We tried it on over the weekend (there are pants too) and, as you can see by the look on his face, he was less than thrilled about it. This little boy hates wearing anything on his head right now, so wearing the fuzzy hood was practically torture in his opinion. But holy cow is it cute on him.
It’s big enough that I’m hoping it will fit him again next year, when he will potentially be more tolerant of things on his head. We will see if he is able to handle wearing it to trunk or treat tonight- if not, I have a back-up plan:
If he won’t tolerate being a lion, then he can go as Marshawn Lynch…in beast mode! Go Hawks!
Either way- ROAR!! Win win.
Happy Halloween y’all- have a fun, safe night of trick or treating!
