The Best Halloween Costume Ever- The Meatball

My friend, Alix of Modern Kiddos happens to have one of the cutest kids I've ever seen and he is so clever too.  Take a look at this...

I tried to envision what I would say if one of my sons told me he wanted to be a meatball for Halloween.

"A meatball?  Like spaghetti and meatballs?"

"Yeah, mom!  It's going to be awesome!!"

"Um, how do you propose we do this?  Put you in a red hamster ball?  How would you go trick or treating?"

Enter my son's look of defeat.

"Why don't you just be like the other kids.  Iron Man is cool."

Yup, I totally crushed his dreams.  And I've encouraged peer pressure and jumping off bridges too.  I totally rock.

I like to think I'm creative, but oh Lordy, Target just makes it way too easy on us.  $20 and I have a costume?  Okay, deal.

Here's to next year.  Hopefully we can be as awesome as Alix and her son.

That is an awesome costume! I have to admit that I used Target's help this year, but this definitely gets the wheels turning for a future year...
