Earlier this month, Nedy and Kam decided they wanted to be mummies for Halloween. Nana even cut up old white sheets into strips for the occasion.
And then the Sunday of Trick-or-Treat both announced, "We don't want to be mummies anymore." Yeah. So, apparently they discussed among themselves that being wrapped up from head to toe might inhibit movement and make going to the bathroom a challenge. (I do love the fact that the 4 and 6 year olds were the ones who identified this flaw in the costume design...)
They had new ideas. Nedy wanted to be a witch and Kam a pirate. In ten minutes I scrambled around the house gathering anything remotely witch or pirate-like. And here you have it:
Yep, I'm sort of proud of myself. They got to be what they wanted and I showed them some super speedy Mama resourcefulness...with pretty cute results. :)
