I love 2 year olds.
Really. I do.
We’ve been talking about Halloween all month now, doing all our Halloween crafts and reading a few books. I was originally planning on having our darling toddler son dress as Bob the Builder.
- It’s simple and we already have the materials on hand.
- He’s pretty cute dressed ready to build.But after reading several Halloween books, he started saying he wanted to be a ghost. (Okay, most of our Halloween books show someone dressed as a ghost, so it made sense.) I figured, easy costume. I knew he wouldn’t want anything on his head, so no sheet. I used an old t-shirt of my husband’s and drew on the ghost face. Figuring a white hooded sweatshirt underneath and he was good to go.
His response when I showed it to him today?
“Okay, Sweetie, what do you want to wear for trick-or-treat? Do you want to be Bob the Builder?” I asked patiently.
“Hmmm…” he said, drawing it out like he does. “Car.”
Now I could have panicked. After all, that is a little harder than making a ghost costume. But, being as big into cars as he is, I actually bought a Lightning McQueen costume at the end of the season last year for him to wear for dress up. (Which, by the way, he has only worn once.)
“Do you want to wear this car costume?”
So, I’ve got 3 costumes packed to go to Grandma’s house for trick-or-treating tomorrow. Your guess is as good as any as to which, if any, he will choose to wear. Maybe I should dress him as Bob the Builder driving Lightning McQueen? Or he could be the ghost of Bob the Builder?
What do you think? What costumes will your kids be wearing this year?
