A note

by mssinglemama on October 28, 2009

I am beyond busy and the spare moments I do have are devoted solely to Benjamin and then John Bear.

Time is not my friend right now and I have absolutely nothing to write about

1. What should I be for Halloween?

Benjamin is demanding that I be Bat Girl, but the costumes are… well, taking Benjamin during the day and going back at night with a new single mama friend and John Bear. Oh, John doesn’t know what he’s going to be either. So, throw in couple costumes if you have them.


Any of my Columbus peeps reading this, if you want to join – please e-mail me, I just haven’t had time to call or write.

Did I mention I am busy?

Leave links with costume ideas for me.

You’ll have to show John Bear my latest blog on the pumpkin carving. He’ll love it and totally want to do it with Benjamin! I thought of ya’ll while we were doing it last night!

Wear all white and attach paper plates, candy wrappers, empty water bottles, etc and be white trash. Here is a link for cheap at home costumes. http://www.robinsfyi.com/holidays/halloween/costumes.htm

Hey Alaina! I’m dressing as Pocahantas 😉 its super cute, and I got loads of compliments at the Halloween party I went to. I also saw an awesome (sexy) genie, or you guys can go as a doctor and a nurse! I’m probably not helping here, but I’m trying. I hope whatever you decide to be, you have an amazing day!

You could go as a Christmas tree (brown tights, green shirt, christmas tree skirt around your waist, lights (battery powered ones) and ornaments on the shirt) and John Bear could go as a present (white t-shirt with Christmas ribbon glued on). Target and Lowe’s Hardware have Christmas stuff out already so you can find it all!

I LOVE these ideas. All so creative and could make them on the fly. I am also thinking about some kind of couple costume with John Bear – is that cheesy?

I might just throw on a dress and put on fairy wings, and then make John a fairy hunter – he could hold bloody fairy wings or something. (He thinks that idea is totally sick and twisted – for the record).

my 1 year old son and I went as Super Mario and Princess Peach. I dyed my dog green, gave him a red mohawk and attached a saddle to his back and he was Yoshi
