Last year, I had planned to go to a neighborhood thing in Chicago with Wallace dressed as Harold and me with a page from Harold and the Purple Crayon on my shirt. I felt like crap from him keeping me up all night so we didn’t go. The year before, I had planned a Lion costume but it was too big. I put him in a pumpkin costume and took pixtures. Another night, I put him in a green sleeper with a frog hat and took more adorable pictures. I had attempted to carve a pumpkin but had a migraine.
This year, he has opinions and likes but no concept of Halloween. He probably won’t like the whole going to people’s doors and talking to them thing, but maybe with friends showing him how and the reward of candy (that I will have to sort through and only let him have certain ones…) he will think it’s fun.
But, the question of what he should be is hanging over me! It could be 70s or 35 and snowing/raining in Michigan, so versatility is important. He doesn’t watch any TV or movies. He hasn’t really gotten into dressup and only does a little pretend play that could be turned into a costume. It could be a costume just for him or it couls be a family costume. I’m open to suggestions! And I sew.
