Yes, Max went as a Fireman (again) and Artemis was a Princess (for the third year in a row), however, it was planned. Well almost (isn’t that always the way it is with us).
You see Max also had a skeleton costume (because I always make sure to have a back-up of the back-up, see the impact that Halloween 2012 had on me!?) so he was going to go as a “Skeleton Fireman” but ditched the skeleton at the last minute. No harm done.
And Artemis’ Disney Princess dress was a size 6 and she’s a size 4 so to say that it was a bit big would be an understatement. I’m pretty sure that dresses like that are the reason that kids have baby teeth because she almost knocked hers out 53 times. I tried to McGyver her dress so that she wouldn’t trip by installing hair clips (you know the ones from 1980 that didn’t even work then) underneath her dress but after a while I was pretty sure that THEY were the reason that she was tripping so we just had her carry the entire front of her dress. And her basket. Basically we just carried her. The good news is that it will still fit her next year because I’m pretty sure that she’ll still want to be a princess.
Speaking of princesses, I asked her if she wanted to be one in real life but she assured me she didn’t. She told me that “Princesses are lazy. All they do is sit around and eat candies all day”. On second thought, I think that I want to be a Princess.
Did You Have a Halloween Costume Debacle of Your Own?
P.S. I would appreciate it if you didn’t tell The Kids that one candy a day isn’t a LOT. Add it to the list that includes “a dime for allowance is the same as a million dollars”. Thanks.
