Kindred Spirit


Sigh.

I'm faced with a dilemma. My 4-year-old might be my karmic penance. He announced to me that he will not wear his costume this Halloween. Will not.


Friends, this is a costume that I sewed. It is so dang cute. Love sewn into every stitch. He requested it. I cobbled several patterns together to create it. He repeatedly pestered me sweetly with, "Is my costume done, yet." Now, it is done. He doesn't want to wear it.

Here is the thing. I think he does want to wear it. He is my kindred spirit. Stubborn enough to convince himself of his own excuses which are really only covering up his fear to be noticed by too many.


Seriously, he might not wear it.

Sigh.

Oh Julia, I so feel your pain. I have a son like that too. I won't name any names....but his rhymes with 'Bake'. I can only imagine how cute the costume is if you made it. Maybe he will change his mind?
