Is this your costume?

Posted: October 29th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Reviews and Giveaways | 3 Comments »

Tonight we arranged to be kidless for 24 hours.

We haven’t been able to throw off the shackles of these boys since well before Judah was born. Not that I mind, I mean it was my choice to nurse him!

For us the most exciting things have been:
– No baby gate!
– The furniture cushions staying on the furniture
– Going to our favorite bar and not having to rush home!

Well, the last one was all cool until some barely legal girl in a Thing 1 costume asked us if we were in costume. Um, sure, we are going as middle aged parents of three young children who just want to get out for a beer?

We were totally lame! I am so out of it I didn’t even realize it was a big night out and that people were going to be all costumed up. After watching many a pirate wench strut about, some in full on Day of the Dead face paint, I was totally inspired to dress up next year.

Everyone was in costume, except for us! Even the bartenders were dressed up. I will not forget our favorite barkeep, John, dressed as a sailor. It was awesome.

We had Pirates. Even a few Sexy Pirates! Pilots and Flight Attendants circa 1960. A few Flappers. About half a dozen Where’s Waldos (is this still a relevant costume?). A guy in a trash can with Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome written across it and both the Geico Caveman and the Allstate Mayhem dude. I thought that one was pretty good actually.

Next year I’m totally dressing up. As a pirate. I may not go the sexy pirate route and buy my costume where I can also buy sex toys (shhhhhhh- I just said that!), but I will be a pirate! Someone can hold me to it…Jen? You are my resident pirate fanatic- I’m looking at you!

    Oh, I wish I were going out to see that! I haven't been out on Halloween (or near Halloween, for that matter) in years!

    Well, I am glad you took the last 24 hrs. for yourselves. The boys and I had a blast. It was so fun. Busy, but fun. I would do it again in a heartbeat, not soon, but I would do it. LOL!!! Just listening to Wyatt, was worth it. Seeing all the progress they have made is so exciting.
    Thanks for letting me take the boys.
