I should start this post off with a letter addressed to my son that would go something like this..
I am so sorry that mama did not have the means to make you a super awesome first Halloween costume, but I hope you understand. Mama does not have her sewing machine, and we were not expecting to have Halloween plans while living here. Therefore, your costume was made up from things we already owned --minus the little girl tights...Again, I'm sorry..Yes, at age 9 months, you wore a pair of girls tights.
I promise that once we return to the states, you and I will head down to Joann's fabric store in August, and you can pour through the catalogues of costume patterns...and I WILL make you any one you want. It will be fun. It will be our thing. Mama and Sal, picking out a pattern and fabric together. You can hold me to it, Just because I dressed you as.....
NAAAAAAAA-CHO LIIIIIIIIIIIII-BRE for your first Halloween.
Yes, that's a red terry cloth bib you're wearing as your cape.
Yes, those are little girls tights mama scored for 2 RMB.
Yes, those are your shoes from Auntie Adele ( they finally fit!).
And yes, that's one of your gDiapers you're wearing as a Speedo over the tights.
We will probably draw on a 'stache, and put you in a long sleeve onesie ( oh the looks I'd get for taking a bare bellied boy out in 70 degree weather!), but I think it will still be cute.
Thanks for being such a good sport.
P.S. I promise not to bust these pictures out to show your prom date.
