quickly approaching and the dreaded costume search has begun.
I pulled out the box and all the costumes from the past came spilling out. Why should we buy new ones when we have plenty of perfectly good ones?!?
There were plenty to choose from.
There were pretty, girly ones.
and some that weren’t so girly.
There were some from the distant past.
We didn’t limit our choices to the usual gender roles,
even if we probably should have.
Some needed a
diaper change a test flight.
Some of the kids were in it for the fun,
and some were already in their cold-blooded role.
And in that box was the perfect costume for ME!
