With one boy, one girl, and a Fred and Wilma costume on loan from a friend, I was fully prepared to give my 3 year old a bat and make a bone barrette for the Peanut.
"Mommy, I want to be a GHOST for Halloween!"
"A ghost, Bjorn? Really?!"
"Yes, Mommy. A GHOST!!"
"Well, how about Bam Bam? You can be Bam Bam and your sister will be Pebbles. You can even have a bat that you can hit things with. ACTUALLY HIT THINGS! While you yell 'BAM BAM'!"
"No, Mommy," he says, arms crossed determinedly in front of him. "No. I want to be A GHOST!!"
"Bjorn, YOU CAN HIT THINGS. You will actually be allowed to HIT stuff with the bat. No time-outs. As long as you say "Bam Bam" while you do it, you can HIT THINGS - it's part of your costume!"
"But, I don't want to be Bam Bam. I want to be a ghost. I want to yell BOO!"
So, enter the Ghost Family. Happy Halloween 2012!!
|Easiest costumes to make. Ever.|

|My bestie and I. Can't you tell what we are? I'm a ghost, she's a ballerina. :)|
