Costume-Crazy!!


I caught this article, entitled "Costume Ideas for Parents Who Hate Their Kids", on Cracked.com (which almost always lives up to it's name for me) and, even though I’m a DIY-gal, I had to laugh, because I know how right they are. My kids would have rebelled at all of these and I would have died of embarrassment myself!
It got me to thinking, though, about all our costumes over the years, because I remember one particular meltdown by The Girl Child about ten years ago. This costume I had handmade for her oldest brother a few years before caused all hell to break loose:

Yeah, she’s smiling there. Don’t let that fool you. I probably bribed her with candy. Anyway, she had to go to preschool as a jack-o-lantern and I had a full-out rebellion on my hands. She wanted a store-bought princess costume! I wanted to utilize the costumes I had already made!

No Goodwill Hunting, but Holy Harley, Batman!



Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a share of the awesome fall weather we had here! It was windows open and just a touch of fall in the air! Love it!

Normally, I would have spent a good part of my weekend hitting up all my local Goodwill and thrift stores, but not this weekend. So, now, of course, I'm sitting here thinking that the most awesome whatzit ever was there and someone else got it! LOL

And why wasn't I out snatching up all the awesome finds?


My awesome, crazy, lovely, super-busy daughter - that's why!
