Halloween is the new Christmas, it seems -- the decorations come out earlier than ever, children get excited, and parents go more than a little bit crazy. The costume competition can be intense, and somehow the kids’ costume plans never seem to match mine.
Which is fine, I guess. You can’t win them all. But there are some costumes I refuse to let my kids wear. Ever.
If you happen to see any of these types of costumes at your door this year -- and I imagine you will -- you can be assured those aren’t my kids in the inflatable slutty Gothic gangster ballerina costumes.
Will they be yours?
