Needs courage – stat

hear me rawr

It’s Year 2 and not much has changed; this was last year’s attempt at Halloween. We hope by Trick-or-Treat time this evening, she’ll have the courage to proudly wear this outfit for a rip-RAWRing time!

Happy Halloween to everyone!

(Thanks, Rachael. Rachael is the hilarious force behind Pineapple Babble, one of my favorite blogs! If you visit her there, you’ll see her precious “Pineapple” actually does have happy moments. Promise.)

 

Color Me Whine

Oh dear. Looks like the color-your-own costume idea wasn’t well received. I could just see this cop breaking up a rowdy prom with a bunch of toddlers in faux tuxedo shirts. Too, tutu cute!

(Rachael strikes again! Her son’s discontent being Superman and a Bavarian boy has also been documented on this site. Wonder if he would finally smile over one of mom’s adorable tutus? In any case, thank you for all the photos.)

Handy Man

Not sure if this tiny tike is protesting his spirited hat or his missing fist. In any case, his screams are on target with the holiday.

(Thanks, Chrystal! Chrystal’s the mom of  3 girls and one bouncing baby boy, pictured above. Her adventures can be found on her blog, Mommafo.)

Crabby

Mom Julie says it best: “It’s my son at 3 months in a lobster suit that we reassigned as a crab to match his sister’s Ariel the Mermaid costume. He was Sebastian, but as you can see the whole thing had him feeling… crabby….” [HA! I love it when the parents do the punny work for me!]

Thanks a million, Julie!

Lederhosen me alone

Mom set out to honor her husband’s heritage by dressing the kids in traditional German garb; her son, a strapping young lad at only 18 months old, set out to let everyone know just how displeased he was to wear his very own pair of homemade lederhosen. OktoberMess!

(As mentioned, Rachael crafted this costume for her son. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since she also has a side business making the most adorable tutus ever! You can find more about this crafty mama and fun ideas for the kids at RockOnMommies.com. Thanks, Rachael!)

Scary-Go-Round

Yet another proof point that “The Happiest Place on Earth” (aka Disneyland) can sometimes be anything but.

Angry to the MAX

The day will be better once Mom takes him out of the box.
