Lets also begin by telling you that yes, my son did have two halloween costumes. Honestly, I didnt do this on purpose. I wanted an owl costume that I thought was absolutely adorable, but then my best friends mom had to go and ruin it by telling me owls are bad omens. Great, just what I want, my son to be a bad omen, on his first halloween. So I gave up looking for another costume that would be just as perfect as the owl I originally had my heart set on, and figured I would go with the standard pumpkin for his first costume.
Turns out, after Sandy hit the Northeast, it brought some majorly cool weather for us down south. And the weekend before halloween, when my sis and I went to babies-r-us, all the halloween costumes we like 50% off already. And then I saw it. It stared at be from 3 aisles away. It was a giraffe costume. now note, matthew loves his sophie the giraffe. I wanted the costume so bad. But knew I had already spend the money on the pumpkin costume, even if it was only $14, thats still $14. But this one was $36 with $50% off. I told my sis, but what if he doesnt even like being in it? So what did we do? We dressed him in it right there in the store. And what did he do? He smiled! he actually liked it! OMG I had to get it.....and thats how he got 2 costumes lol
my lil girafee!
So, halloween night came and we went to my sisters neighborhood like we normally do. We brought the stroller because we new most definitely that matthew would probably fall asleep during trick-or-treating. When went out when it was his normal bed time, and surprisingly he did very well. He even made it to a couple doors either in my arms or in the stroller.
Something I noticed, people arent so generous with candy when they know darn well the kid isnt going to eat it, the parents are. lmao. But hey, we still made out with a decent amount of candy. And funny thing, even after Matthew had fell asleep, my niece Jenna insisted on asking at every door, "Can I have some for my lil cousin too?" I had to reassure alot of the givers that there indeed was a kid in the stroller she was asking for. Quite funny if I do say so myself.
I would say "Mission Completion!" (sorry Lil Einsteins is stuck in my head) for Matthew first Halloween. Im already planning on what we should be next year. As in a complete family costume. I totally failed on that one this year. I was just too involved in getting a costume for Matthew. But next year? ITS ON!
Dont forget theres still time to enter my giveaway!
