Last year for Halloween, my little one wanted to be the moon. As in the big orbital ball in the nighttime sky. Go ahead, Google "moon costume." See what you come up with. Precisely nothing that actually looks like a moon, right? So after weeks of brainstorming and days of construction, our creative two-year old was slipped into a black cat-suit, wrapped with two battery packs of led-lights and very carefully maneuvered into a giant chineese ball lantern. She was, indeed, the moon.
I was so proud, I wanted to show the world what we'd made. Or at least show off a little bit. The neighbors on the trick-or-treat route thought she was simply stellar - but I'd wished she could have worn the whole getup to her school party. I wasn't going to send her, unsupervised, wearing strands of Christmas lights.
This year, no one's gonna miss Princess Belle.
