For all of you moms out there, I'm sure you are frantically trying to locate the perfect Halloween costume for your little ones right now. My son decided he wanted to be a dinosaur this year. Fortunately I was able to borrow a costume from another mom in my PTA (Thanks, Sara!). And my daughter is going to be a Lady Bug (because I already had the costume...and she's still too young to have an opinion...thankfully!).
But let me ask all of you moms a question. When did Halloween Costumes cost at least $30 (for the cheap ones) and up? I can remember being a kid and constructing my costume from whatever we could concoct from our imaginations and our mother's closets.
I know, I know, "I used to have to walk to school...in the snow...uphill...both ways..." Maybe I'm just being cynical and reminiscing about different times, but am I alone in this nostalgia? Or maybe I'm just cheap?
