Truman Le Pew

I've been planning Halloween for the last 2 months in preparation for Truman's costume. 2 months ago he told me he wanted to dress up as Captain Feathersword from The Wiggles. 1 month ago he still said Captain Feathersword and up until a few weeks before Halloween his mind hadn't changed, "Captain Feathersword"! I searched the internet for this hard-to-find pirate costume and even thought about making the darn thing myself.

It made me realize that Truman is growing up so fast, learning to be his own person with real thoughts and opinions. I soon made the decision to nix Captain Feathersword and buy him a padded, fleece skunk costume just like his plush dragon costume last year.

Is it selfish on my part to keep him cute and cuddly as long as I can? A pirate costume is timeless and can be put on at any age. In the end, Truman was so excited to wear the Le Pew costume since he would be going trick-or-treating for the first time in our neighborhood...he totally forgot about Captain "Who".
Truman will be 3 years old next year which probably means I only have one more Halloween until he wants to be some cool super hero or action figure. At least I'm reassured knowing these costumes will reappear for the next couple of years with baby #2. I will keep my babies cute and cuddly for as long as they let me and no matter how old they get they will always be my Lil Stinkers.

  1. I'm sorry now that I haven't been reading more often, Truman is sweet and adorable and I agree with your choice to keep him that way as long as possible!
