Now that we are well into October, I can dust off our copy of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," which happens to be my favorite part of Halloween. Too bad I can't join Linus in the pumpkin patch. I wouldn't get upset with him like Sally did just because she missed her treats.
Many of my mom friends have already bought their kids' costumes. I feel so behind! Kellan wants to be a pirate this year. Again. I tried to convince him there are many other options out there, but he's having none of it.
When I was in kindergarten I wanted to be Kelly Garrett from Charlie's Angels. Those were the days when costumes came in boxes from drug stores and included a plastic mask and a terrible plastic smock-thingy. Anyway, that costume was sold out and I had to be a different angel. I am clearly not over the disappointment since I am mentioning it on this blog.
My point is, if my son wants to be a pirate, I should probably just let him be a pirate. Do your kids have strong opinions about their costumes this year?
