Halloween Switch Up

Remember how Cade begged me to buy him another Halloween costume this year, so he could be Harry Potter?  Remember how I caved in, and said yes, because admittedly I thought being Harry Potter was cooler than being a ninja?  Remember how I was all excited about his cloak, and about painting a lightning scar on his forehead, and taking a picture of him in his silly, round specs?

Today was his Halloween parade at his school.  I went, of course, to cheer him on and take pictures.

Do you see him?

Look closely.

Yeah, my boy's there.  He's cute.  But what is he wearing?  A ninja costume.  You should have witnessed the battle that ensued at my house this morning, when he defiantly announced to me he was NOT wearing his (expensive) Harry Potter costume.

Seriously, kid?

I cried on the inside last Halloween when I realized it was the last time I would be able to choose Leah's costume for her... I mean "guide her choice."

Now I'll never have family themed costumes.

Aren't kids great? But I'm kinda glad he didn't choose to be a pink jellyfish, like the (admittedly adorable) girl behind him in the parade.

Just saying.

HAHAHAHA! This is hilarious! Cade has a feisty streak...maybe he takes after his mama? :)

Cade is such a little opinionated individual. I'm sure it's quite a challenge, but I like that he's his own person. I think he's going to be a strong person when he gets older (weird to say MAN) that sticks up for himself and the rights of others. Good kid.
