I am scarred from my childhood with regard to dressing up in costumes and absolutely hate them. Add to that the whole private school uniform and having to wear your hat when in uniform and out in public and hell to the no, thanks. My children and the rest of the United States believe that dressing up is the best thing ever, sob sob so I feign enthusiasm, and we find a costume. Due to having friends and clients with older kiddos I have a dress up box to rival any costume store and have furnished costumes to the girls friends on many occasions.
This year Lily said she didn't think she would dress up and Rosie had no idea what she wanted to be. We dragged out the big old trunk and she waded through it, maybe this, maybe this.Finally I said, how about we go to Target? Child, unlike her sister, has never had a new costume. That nearly worked but they only had the boy version so off to the Halloween store.
This year a little girl was so very very excited to be Hermione Granger
|She wore the costume for days|
|she practised spells|
|it's my fault, the photos before wasn't good, so i said, open your eyes wider. lol|
First time in 8 yrs that I haven't graced my Halloween posts with 2 girls. gulp. one is growing up.
