Halloween

As promised, a post about what Demon Baby wants to be for Halloween.

First, know that I have been trying, for three weeks now, to offer alternative costumes. ANY alternative costume.

Puppy.

Superhero. ANY superhero.

Fireman.

Cat.

Scarecrow.

Something, anything, but his dream costume.

What he wants to be for Halloween, what he will not be swayed from.

Which shows me how utterly eccentric he is.

Is a . . . .

worm.

Not an inchworm, cute and green. But a worm like from my garden.

"Why?"

"They're so darn cute." (Direct quote--I don't make this stuff up, folks.)

"But what do I dress you as? An all-brown . . . blob. You'll look like . . . dung."

"I want to be a worm."

So if you see my child looking like . . . well, crap . . . this Halloween, know it's just a mother trying to fulfill his fondest Halloween wish.

To be a worm.

Of course. What do you think W stands for?

Awww, well that is just so darn cute!

It does fit with his latest word - Crapple. :)

Just be careful he doesn't end up looking like a condom. I speak from experience.

Given his penchant for nudity his costume choice could have been worse.

Jude:
You didn't guess. "W" could have been WAITER or WALRUS.

Well, I suppose there's that (and as I write this, he is, indeed, nude).

anti-wife:
Yes, but you are not the mother sending your child out looking like dung. ;-)

Yes, on some level, I find it refreshingly original.
