I decided, both girls would be ballerinas this year. Why? Because her cherub choir director asked that we choose one costume from an approved list for the christmas presentation in December. I chose for her to be a ballerina. So I could chop two carrots with one knife. Simple.
Noooo…not so simple…
Ellie wanted to be Kwazii Cat from the Octonauts; “A daredevil cat with a mysterious pirate past…”
It’s a cat with an eyepatch, ya’ll.
The compromise: (drumroll please…)
Ollie too, is past that stage of simply going with what I choose for her. She wanted to be Master Shifu, “trainer of many kung fu warriors,” from the movie Kung Fu Panda. This is what Master Shifu looks like:
(I’m not making this up, my two-year-old has a mild obsession with Master Shifu).
No luck with that costume, so we compromised. She settled for tigress instead.
But I’ll be damned, I bought the ballerina tutu already! So here we go:
Pathetic, I know. But I’m proud of myself regardless…
Think I totally botched this one? What are your halloween plans? Do you celebrate halloween? Or are you one of the many who don’t celebrate “the devil’s holiday?” LOL! (You know what I’m talking about!)
