So upon viewing my post it seems that I had left a few former ones in draft form so the former has been hanging in blogger limbo since its induction.
My parents did save the day and found a Thomas costume at toys r us. Squish A after much deliberation and numerous mind changes decided on a bunny. I made no costumes this year....Not quite the Holiday I had in mind but hey, they enjoyed it.
I painted my son's face around five while we waited for Dad to get home. He was naked except for the blue face. When it was time to garb up he refused!! Pitched a fit yelling and screaming. I said fine you will go as a blue faced streaker go get your pumpkin!!! I thought this reverse psycology (sp) worked perfectly as he turned to me and said, "but mom wait.", aha I thought the fight was over until he said, "shouldn't you put some shoes on me?". ARGHHHH
In the end Dad held him still and I forced Thomas over his head chanting about how I paid twenty five dollars for this hard to find costume and he was going to wear it..................He conceded. About five minutes later he was a different boy smiling and parading around the streets asking everyone how they liked his Thomas costume....
