5 kids keep life busy.
Enough so, I actually forgot that somewhere out there in cyberspace, I had a blog.
My baby is now 4 months old. Already?!
Bittersweet to see the infant stage pass as we go now into baby stage. She's laughing, cooing, loving the fact that she has toes and knees that appear out of nowhere and dangle above her head, just out of reach that she can't get them.
I've been thinking about Halloween. Usually, our family does a theme and we all dress up. Last year we were pirates. The year before we went as Robin hood and Maid Marian with their future children and pet skunk. (My son. He refused to wear anything other than that costume.)
This year....I'm feeling a little like....
Yeah. Something like this.
I'm not really into it. (Don't you love my daughter's face in this? I love her look of disgust.)
One daughter want to go as an army girl, the other wants to be a vampire fairy, (interesting mix, I know), and the other wants to be a cat, my son a car, my husband wants to be a vampire.
I want to be cool....
Like this cool.
I thought of going as Octomom--(again)--but that's sooooo last year.
Looks a little Spaceball-ish, don't you think? (You've seen that movie, right?!)
Hey--I won an award for this, I'll have you know. I forget what category. Probably the: "WHAT THE #$%@!..." category. :)
I'm trying to think of something fun I can do with my baby. Like be a chef and the baby be dressed as a lobster. But dude, I don't want to be a chef! I'd rather us reverse costumes and I be the lobster! I really am serious....but I don't think they sell Lobster costumes in adult size. Honestly, could you picture a lobster my size walking down your neighborhood street?
I like to be off-the-wall. That's just one thing to know about me. I don't like to be serious.
I thought of going as a Kangaroo--dressing my baby as my "joey". But let's be honest. I can't hop. Nor will I. And this white girl can't jump. And we'd look stupid. Really, a Kangaroo?
I've always, ALWAYS dreamed of going as a sumo wrestler for Halloween. I've been trying to talk my hubby into that one for years now. He won't do it. Because he knows just for sport, I'll trip him while we waddle down the sidewalk and I'll jump on him--give the neighbors a good show.
He's afraid of blackmail.
And the simple fact that well, what an dork Halloween brings out in me.
Besides, most sumo wrestling costumes are blow-up. If I did jump on him in an all-impressive Kung-Fu Panda move, I'd probably pop a butt cheek or something.
I've got it! GASP! I can't believe I didn't think of it before!
I guess you'll just have to wait and see what I come up with. :)
How about you?
Have you thought about what you want to be or your kids? Do you make your kid's costumes or buy? Any off-the-wall and fun ideas out there? DO you dress up? I would love to know!
