I was going to dress Sunny up as Richard Simmons for Halloween. She has a curly mullet, a big attitude, and can surely sweat to the oldies- but her mullet grew out just in time for her to avoid what would have been the funniest Halloween costume ever!
Well…it was the growing out of the mullet and the fact that I’m not the sewing maven I thought I was. So I, like many other adoring and well meaning parents, I purchased a Halloween costume from Pottery Barn. Yes, I paid full price. Yes, I am well aware that she will only wear it once. Yes, it crossed my mind that she would have made an awesome Michael Jackson too.
But she’s no mullet man- she’s a mouse. And we took her to the Brooklyn Rag-a-muffin parade where she pouted and sassed for two painful hours.
Right about…here is where she finally gave in to the mouse hat.
And right about… here is when she became a blind mouse- and took her hat off for good.
This year Matt and I will be dressing up too. It’s going to be awesome…she might even reward us with a smile.
