As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Halloween is just not that important to me. I mostly participate because it’s important to my husband. But I am a sucker for babies in cuddly costumes, so this year I made a bit of an effort — or I intended to.
Steve and I talked about what we might dress Tate as for weeks, but we just couldn’t decide. I would have loved to have made his costume, but let’s be honest here, I can’t find the time to use my sewing machine to save my life — it never would have gotten done. Last weekend, we went on a last ditch shopping effort in hopes that we would find a costume that we liked, didn’t cost a fortune, and actually fit our baby boy. What a challenge!
The costumes that were marked as Tate’s size were cheap, ugly, and more money than we wanted to pay. Target was our last stop and I was about to give up. They had sold completely out of baby costumes. As I started to walk away from the seasonal aisle, I saw something I thought just might work.
