I may have crossed a line

But before I get to that, I must show you what horror I had to endure on Halloween. I'm pleased with myself that I've gotten the Halloween pictures up before Christmas (hold your applause).

Silas has wanted to be the Predator from the Alien vs. Predator movies for two years now. This year I finally got it together and found the mask and hands for him. Sidenote: Do NOT, ever, google 'child predator hands'. Google does not know you mean predator costume. Back to your regularly scheduled post. And we can all thank his father for letting him watch such a scary movie. You have no idea how many arguments have ensued in our household over this. His defense? "He doesn't know what he's watching". I beg to differ. Anyway, sorry, end of tangent.

So hold onto your hats, ladies and gents. This is the extremely scary and somewhat nauseating costume my six year old wanted:

He has the helmet with the dread locks on it, but chose not to wear it. I have no idea why. The poor thing was absolutely mortified when a little girl took one look at him, screamed, and ran to her mother. He pulled his mask off, fell to his knees, and told her "it's just me. I'm just a little boy. I won't hurt you".

Now on to the line I may have crossed.

I have put the dogs in pajamas.

I know. You don't have to say it. I'm just not sure if there's a way back from this.

I've painted the bully's toenails. I've put bows in the spaniel's ears. (are those apostrophe's right?) (Is that one?) Someone get me a punctuation teacher and have me a baby. That should solve both problems, don'tcha think?

At least they're cute pajamas, right?

That costume? Magnificent and terrifying all at once.

The dogs? Adorable. Hands down adorable.

I'm jealous that you painted your dogs toenails. I've always wanted to do ours!!

Tamara said...

That is a freakin scary outfit! Bet he was the best dressed though, right? ;-)

And the first apostrophes were right. The second wasn't (it's just a plural word, so doesn't need an apostrophe). Sorry. Grammar Nazi me.

I forget that it's winter in your part of the world. The jammies are really cute. People here are shaving their dogs to give them some relief from the summer heat.

I'm with the frightened little girl, that IS a scary mask!

The dogs? Simply adorable as always.

Self-awareness of your problem is the first step. Because, honey? I think you and I are close enough, here in this world where we've never met or laid eyes on each other, to be honest: despite how supportive your lovely commenters are, they're wrong.

The dog thing is crossing a line. Stop. now.

And I'm not only typing that because I've had a crap day and am in a foul mood.
