The lowercase was thrilled to learn exactly how much fun having a birthday on Halloween can be. He got to open a couple of gifts, dress up in funny clothes, ring doorbells (one of his favorite things!), get told repeatedly how cute he is, get and eat some chocolate, AND see lots of big kids until well past his usual bed time!
Argh! I'm a pirate! Ahoy matey!
(Of course, it sounds more like "Oy! Pie-rut! Hi mee-tee!")
Recently, Cecily talked about the sexy costumes out there for little girls this year. I knew they were out there, but can you imagine my surprise when this showed up at my door:
On a girl who couldn't have been more than about 14? She was with a group of about 5 boys and no girls. Somehow I'm not surprised. What did surprise me is that this girl's parents had to have known what she bought for a costume -- I found it several places online (google: sexy strawberry shortcake) and it sells for about $50 -- an amount that most kids that age don't readily have access to without their parents since she didn't appear to be old enough to have an actual job yet. Holy hell. Here's hoping I can keep my little pirate innocent for as long as possible.
