Earlier this Summer, My oldest son told me that he wanted to be Batman for Halloween. Since I was hoping to do a woodland theme this year with my three boys, I made him a quick Batman (here) costume in hopes that it would satisfy his superhero needs. Since then, I have been trying to change his mind by having him watch old episodes of David the Gnome on Youtube and telling him that fox's get the most candy when trick-or-treating. Some would say that this is slightly dishonest, but since this is probably the last year that I can pull this trick, I feel completely justified! To make our fox costume come true, we died our fabric orange, made up a fox pattern and crossed our fingers in hopes for the best. I just finished it today and am thrilled. I was a little worried that I bullied him into it until I watched him race happily around for the rest of the day and hearing him say, "I want to wear this costume forever!" Needless to say, I am pleased as punch and would recommend
poisoning molding your child's mind with the help of David the Gnome to anyone. Now just one owl costume to go and we'll be set!
