Trick or Treat!

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.

OMG, the lowercase is all grown up (not yet an uppercase but still...sniff, sniff, it's almost like watching my own grow up so fast!).

Love the costume and glad he had such a fun time.

And, um, Sexy Strawberry Shortcake? Yikes, with 2 girls, I am in so much trouble. I intend to do my best to impart a realistic sense of self/body/image contrary to what our media shoves down their throats from a young age. But, boy, do I have my work cut out for me...heck, anyone raising a kid, male or female, does nowadays.

Sorry to get all "Debbie Downer" on you.

May we both help our kids keep that sense of innocence for as long as possible :-)
He is so cute! Love the costume, love the superman w/glasses pic on your last post.

Ugh, the sexy strawberry shortcake is yet another thing that makes me totally despair. It is a scary thing, being the mother of a little girl.
