Halloween 2013: Mario Time!
This Halloween, Spencer turned out to be a very lucky kiddo indeed. In 2011, He said he wanted to be Mr Potatohead starting in August and stuck to it. Same for last year and the robot. This year, he swore he wanted to be… a banana. I was dumb enough to fall for it. Banana costume purchase! I was ahead of the game. All locked in and it was only early September. Then the doubts started. He decided to be a robot again. Fine by me. I gave him deadlines for changing his mind. We were all set.
And then the day before the day before Halloween, he decided to be Mario. The next morning was a school day so I told him we could go to two Targets after school and that would be the extent of costume search. Target #1: Luigi. Not good enough. Target #2: Score!
I am choosing to believe that both buttons coming off his overalls is a sign he had a super fun time.
