Here's my first photo attempt. This is me and Paige, Halloween 2007. Just call us the Bee Girls. LOL. Paige had been so into Ariel that I picked out a mermaid costume for her at Toys R Us. She tried it on in the store and told me she liked it and would wear it, even though she'd also liked the bee costume. When we got it home and I tried to get her to wear it, she told me no, that she wanted the bee costume, which I of course didn't like because I thought it was kind of ugly. But, being the sucker...I mean, great mom...that I am, I returned it and got the bee costume.
Since I'm a teacher, I bought a costume for me to wear to school for the school's Halloween parade. On Halloween, the speech therapist came into the room and put on this bee costume to show my kids. I asked her if she needed it for the evening, or if I could borrow it. I told her I had a little bee at home who'd be so excited if I was a Mama Bee. So, she let me borrow it. I came home and quickly put it on in the kitchen while she was in the living room. When I called her in to see me, she was SO excited! That evening we took her to the mall for trick or treating (many of the stores give out candy and stickers and whatnot.) Her crazy...I mean, great mom...wore this costume around the mall with her. It was funny, people kept saying, "Aww, look at the bees." There was a new photo place in the mall, and they were offering free 5x7's of kids in their costumes. Advertising genius, I tell you. So of course we went in. While we were in line, Paige started to tell me she was "all done" with the wings. I told her she wasn't - not until after the picture!
So now you know what a crazy mom I am - and have photographic evidence!
