and it gets better

Brothers and sisters, I have made a COLOSSAL mistake. Feel free to point and laugh.

(lowered head) I...I let Cass see the videos of the transforming Transformers on You Tube.

And now he has ideas MUCH HIGHER than the original black sweatshirt/sweatpants - boxes on legs - funky helmet and armpads I was going to do. I had no sooner seen a (I thought) really cool Transforms-Into-A-Jet costume (and I could DO THAT)

and was really getting excited, plotting and thinking about where I could find materials....

And the Boy Menace spoke up.

'Oh," he said, dismissively. 'That won't work.'

My face fell.

Then he explained. 'That costume covers his hands. How would I hold a goody bag?'

Ah yes! I forgot - the greed factor. Silly me.

Well! Tomorrow is his last chance. He needs to make a decision.
I am picking out two - well, maybe three - outfits (including the jet, because seriously - so cute!)
and he will have to DEAL WITH IT.

You could make that? I am seriously impressed. Also I am NEVER showing that to my kids.

Will so throw something together last minute. Funny, my kids aren't excited about what to be this year. Already a too old malaise is setting in. But I mean, they ARE already 6 and 8!

Oh mah holy hell. Tie the goody bag around his neck. You have to make that!

Dude, stop inspiring him or you will be building an actual transformer (and then Optimus Prime will get you for sure)

What happened to the days when they were satisfied with dressing up as witches, ghosts and goblins? Man I am so glad I don't deal with that anymore. Except when the teenagers decide to dress as sexy nurses, or witches, or ghosts or goblins...

OKAY, awesome costume, much??

I could never make that, and am so not showing it to the Boy.

Besides, I agree with the kid that you don't want to cover the candy-carrying hands. Mucho importante.
