Even though Halloween is quickly approaching, Garrett and Landon love to dress up in costumes year round. I'm that mom who's online at 12:01 am the morning after Halloween, scouring the clearance sales for all the leftover boys' costumes that no one wanted. And I have no problem with them leaving the house wearing a pirate costume or whatever keeps them happy (and causes less whining).
What?! I have no shame.
It seems that this past summer was the summer of Superheroes. Captain America, Green Lantern, The Smurfs.
Oh wait, I guess Papa Smurf isn't exactly everyone's superhero...just mine. Dude makes raising Smurfette look simple, though, doesn't he?
Anyway, Garrett and Landon love themselves some good old-fashioned Superheroes. So in my quest to keep them calm (and my sanity in tact), I did what every desperate mother does. I let them believe that simple superhero costumes do, in fact, turn them into Superheroes.
Seriously...you throw on an apron, you feel like Martha Stewart. Am I right? Same thing goes for Superheroes.
Check out this sweet Child's Green Lantern costume from Costume Discounters and tell me that Garrett doesn't look spectacular...and full of mighty magic powers, I might add.
It's like he grew muscles overnight. How come costumes weren't this awesome when I was his age?
Jealous much? I suppose I am.
If your kids are anything like mine and love to play dress up year round, in addition to Halloween, check out Costume Discounters.
The costume we received is made of excellent quality material, not the cheap stuff that rips should your kids trip and fall. Who am I kidding...I should've said WHEN they trip and fall because they always do. What I really liked best was that the costume came with all the goods that every Superhero needs...the mask, the ring...the whole enchilada.
Costume Discounters has the best variety of costumes I've ever seen and they have something for everyone in your family.
So when you're trying to convince your husband how cool he would look as the red Angry Bird as he strolls around the neighborhood with the kids on Halloween and he says, "Come on now...where am I gonna find THAT costume?", you'll have no problem showing him where he can find it.
Because Costume Discounters has it. For sure.
And when you catch him parading around the house in that same costume, just remember what I said...costumes aren't just for Halloween anymore.
My kids said so.
