I am lying here in bed, trying to work out what the kids should be for Halloween. Elizabeth, for the first year ever, has waffled on her costume. She wanted to be a fairy princess and then she wanted to be a mermaid fairy princess and then she wanted to be some Star Wars character from Disney Infinity and then she wanted to be something else that I have forgotten. And she wants Alex to be whatever she is, only the baby version of it.
Ryan wants to be a fireman. Full stop. A ‘tend fireman because Ryan is not a real fireman, he knows this for sure. He also intends to ride his tiny ride on fire truck when he goes trick or treating. (I am hoping I can talk him out of this because he gets tired of riding it when we go on walks because he’s way too tall for it now.)
I’m going to suggest that Elizabeth goes as her current favorite book character tomorrow (Cimorene from the book Dealing with Dragons) and I suspect that it will be the perfect idea and her mind will be made up. I think the reason she’s been waffling back and forth between a bunch of ideas is because she hasn’t been excited about any of them yet.
