On the day of Halloween, P was misbehaving and cranky ALL DAY LONG, so we felt it wasn't a good idea to take him trick-or-treating and rewarding him with candy. He only wore his costume in the morning for preschool, and later refused to put it back on in the evening after his non-nap. We ended up going to bed early and I was a little sad that the $45 I spent on the two flimsy costumes was just a big waste of money when I couldn't even get any cute pictures. I mean, dressing up kids this young is solely for photo ops, right?
Over the weekend, I decided to have them put back on their costumes just for a few photos. Yes, he was in the middle of watching TV, which explains why he was refusing to look at the camera. If I had turned it off, he'd be running all over the place, pretending he was an Angry Bird or a Kung Fu Panda. It was a choice between having blurry-kid-running-around pictures or sitting-still-but-not-looking-at-the-camera pictures. SIGH. I applaud any parents that can keep their three year olds entertained without TVs.
And yes, that's his "murse" of plastic animals that he carries EVERYWHERE. and pajama pants because weekends do not require real clothes.
