Halloween Indecision

First it was a witch.  A boy witch.

Then Evan wanted to be a ghost.  Who can blame him?  The Haunted Mansion ghosts are cool.

Then Saturday he tried to decide between a princess in a castle or a faery in a castle.  Yes, I did ask, “Do you mean a prince?”  He assured me he wanted to be a princess.  Then he saw the faery costumes in the catalogue, and he declared he wanted to be a faery.  Unfortunately we were on the phone with my father-in-law who said there were no boy faeries.  Oh yeah, what about Oberon or Puck?  Give me some credit; I’m not going to put him in a dress with tights.  I’ll figure something out.

Today he wanted to be a purple witch or a purple ghost.  When I mentioned I’ve never seen a purple ghost and that they are usually white.  Evan declared he will be a purple boy witch along with Papi, Grandma, Grandma-great. 

I hate to stiffle his creativity.  I promise to keep it in context with society on some level.  I can’t wait to show him the pictures when he’s ten and hates girls.  I just better make the costume soon or who knows what he’ll come up with.

    This story reminds me of one of my favorite stories about my nephew. Though its not about Halloween, it is definitely related. The “what do you want to be when you grow up” conversation came up and my four year old (at the time) nephew told my sister that he wanted to be a “mommy.” My sister tried to redirect and ask if he meant a “daddy.” His reply was “No, everyone gets to be a mommy eventually. In fact daddy is going to be a mommy any day now.”

    Even more amusing was the following week when my sister was recounting the story in front of him and he jumped in and declared that he was just “pulling your leg, mommy.”

    Kids are awesome.

    Esanders09: Thanks for sharing. That was a great antidote. What a clever little boy, and so quick to back track when he realized he was part of a joke. So cute
