Max has finally decided what to be for Halloween.
And yes, you must yell when you say that.
For two whole days he has said that he will be Super Max. As we were discussing this yesterday, I told him that I would make him a really neat costume. There would be a cape and a mask and tights...................
"NO! I don't want to wear those!"
"You don't want to wear what?' I ask.
"NO TIGHTS!" he says.
So then I ask him "Do you even know what tights are?"
He looks at me blankly and says "what are they?"
Yesterday, we went to Wal Mart and while we were there we looked at all of the Halloween decorations and some of the costumes.
Max saw a Pirate costume.
Today he says he wants to be a pirate. I got excited "Oh Max, I can make you the cutest pirate costume! You can have red velvet jacket, I can make you some boot s to go over your shoes and you can have a parrot on your shoulder and an eye patch, and a really cool sword..............
He looks at me like I'm crazy and says "I didn't want one like that, I wanted one that you buy at the store."
Then I explained to him that in our family I always make the costumes. Yes I know I'm insane, my kid wants a $14 store bought costume and I'm going to force him to wear something that I've made.
I've always made my kid's costumes and I'm just worried that someday, Max will look back at the Halloween pictures and wonder why he was the only one who didn't get a costume made by mom. By the way I look at it, I'm just saving him a few years of therapy.
I think I might have convinced CJ to dress up for Halloween. Due to the fact that he is 14 and looks 17, he won't be going out collecting candy, but instead he will be staying home passing out candy, and he might have figured out that since me and DH will be taking Max trick or treating, then he will be home by himself.
Just him and the big bucket of candy.
I told him if he dressed up, he could enjoy some of that candy.
I will be putting together a really cool vampire costume for him.
Question of the day.
Chimichangas. Finger food or not?
Please leave your answer in the comments. I'm having a bit of a disagreement with my greasy fingered children.
