So, being child of the 80s and horrible mom I am, I let my son dress up as his favorite Nintendo character. The “horrible mom” part comes in where my 3 year old is almost as good at Nintendo as I am. Scary, isn’t it?
I’m also an unfair mom: Mary was just dying to be Princess Peach but I forced her to use Ethan’s King Kong costume from last year, adding nothing but a red tie. What little girl wants to be Donkey Kong for halloween? Not this one. But once she had this costume on she forgot all about it and instead ran around saying “I’m gonna get you, Mario!” So next year perhaps I’ll force Ethan to recycle his costume and let Mary choose hers.
Well, here’s what the ended up wearing the next year: I can’t believe I didn’t upload it till now! (I’ll need to split this so the dates are right. and I’m no really proud of these last minute costumes!)
One more uber-cutie. This is Aren in 2006 as a ninja, in the hospital in DC.
