So a firefighter a monster and a soldier walk into a bar…
Or it might have been a construction worker, a karate kid, and a duck.
Or possibly a skeleton, a fridge, and a chipmunk.
Actually I’m pretty sure it was a superhero, a secret spy, and a bear.
For the last month I’ve been asked about our boys Halloween costumes. A month ago people weren’t concerned by my ‘I’m not sure’. Two weeks ago I got a lot of ‘they haven’t decided yet?’ queries. On Saturday there was a few ‘but Halloween is next week!’ remarks. Nearly seven years of motherhood and three children is apparently what it takes to break an over-planner.
The baby duck had a duck costume and a monster costume and not a lot of choice. The monkey and the firefighter had a giant bin of dress up clothes and endless possibilities. I asked them everyday for the last month what they wanted to be and got a different answer every time. On Sunday they went to a Halloween party both dressed as construction workers. Today the monkey went to school dressed in a superhero cape and jeans while the firefighter wore his karate uniform. Tonight the monkey was a firefighter and the firefighter was a soldier. Confused yet?
Let’s try this again:
A firefighter a monster and a soldier sit on the front step and pose reluctantly for a Halloween photo. Thanks to a stress free Halloween their mother remains far away from the bar.
