The Halloween 180

HalloweenMichelle was going to be a baby butterfly for Halloween. That's what she decided weeks ago, and that's how she was dressed minutes before we left last night to go trick or treating. Then, all of a sudden, she didn't want to be a baby butterfly anymore. She wanted to be Cinderella.

Luckily this was an easy change, because she got a Cinderella dress for her birthday in July. I still think this 180° about face in the finals seconds is unprecedented. The change made me dizzy, but she was sure she no longer wanted to be a baby butterfly. My Halloween photos show Michelle in both costumes while steady James stayed firm with his decision to go out as Darth Vader.

Here's a photoset from the night. The kids did well as the chocolate should last me until Christmas.

As a female and at her very young age, she has figured out that the metamorphosis from a butterfly to a princess is because she can, it’s her prerogative. The lesson you are supposed to take away from this is the understanding of why and how your friends with older kids can and do drink so much, effective parenting without that “dizzy” feeling.

Who cares what she went as? She is adoringly cute as both!

The fact that kids today still like Darth Vader, Transformers, Spider-Man and the whole lot of those things just shows you how iconic they really are, and how much they are still a part of modern day popular culture.

They aren't just for late twenties / thirty somethings stuck in the past... kids today like them too :)
