This year we proposed to our older kiddos an offer: We could buy them a new costume for less than $20 OR you can make you own costume and we will give you $5.
At first the $5 bribe appeared to entice them until they stepped into the costume aisle of course...
My oldest daughter's (7) Halloween costume of choice? "Sponge
Babe"...Somehow it got mom's approval? Sadly, she does look cute in it.
My son's (5) Halloween costume of choice? "Red Power Ranger"...If I have
to sit through another year of that show, I might cancel Netflix.
We haven't landed on anything yet for the twins, though I am guessing the $5 bribe won't work on them either...
