Halloween Gone Complicated

One thing is true about my boys: They love to dress up! They've been talking about Halloween for a month now. *Insert eye roll here.

Mica said on vacation, "Mom I know what I want to be for Halloween. I want to be a cowboy."

Never mind the fact that I bought them their favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes last year on clearance. *Again insert eye roll here.

I'm sort of for the boys dressing up. They use costumes year round. They just love them.

I was thinking, Well being a cowboy is different. It might be kind of fun. I didn't know that all cowboy boots are more than most kid's costumes. City girl here. I just can't justify spending the money.

These are $49. I guess thinking about it, it doesn't surprise me. Those are some cheaper ones I've seen, and they are on sale. I just don't want to get them for Halloween.

Not to mention that cowboy type shirts add to the bill. At least he'd wear that more than the boots.

Isaak all the sudden decided he wanted to be a Power Ranger. Not just any Power Ranger. He wants to be the white Power Ranger.

All I had ever seen online, and in the stores is the red Power Ranger. One fine day I saw a silver one. It was 1/2 off to. It's close to white. I showed it to Isaak. He said, "That's not the white one." I said, "It's close." He looked at me and said, "Ummm...no thank you." *Again insert eye roll here.

Mica said to Isaak, "I have a great idea. You can be my Batman costume, and I can be Robin. But my Batman costume got broke Mom, so you'll have to fix it." Isaak said, "But we don't have a Batmobile, and we're not old enough to drive." Mica said, "You have a point." Trust me they were serious. *Insert yet another eye roll here.



There you have it I have high maintenance costume boys.

It's bad enough that I have to dress up for work. I liked Halloween when it was simple. I'm thinking they can suck it up, and be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I erred on getting a costume too early last year, and when Halloween rolled around my son didn't want to be a knight anymore, he wanted to be one of his old costumes. -_-

Mine love Halloween too. I buy the costumes on clearance too.

Too bad they aren't into Dr. Who yet... one could go as Dr. Who and the other could go as the Tardis.

Just sayin'... ;-)

My kids keep changing their minds, so I end up paying a lot of money for their costumes. I would love to go to Target on 11/1 and get something for the following year, but the fact is - they will never want to wear it a year later.

Oooh, I hate it when they change their minds like that, over and over again. Allison has decided she wants to have an Elsa costume for our Disney trip this fall. I told her if I buy it, she is using it for Halloween too. She has agreed, but watch her try to pull a switcheroo after we get home, trying to get a new costume.
