Tucker's first Halloween.

Mariah is having an AWESOME contest over at Help! I have a teenager. Seems that Halloween is her favorite holiday and she's requested a little Halloweenie from all entering her contest. This here is one of my best Halloween stories....

My first 3 boys were born in May, March then May again. Since they were all born around the same time of year, they all wore the same Halloween costume for their first Halloween. Or....for MOST of their first Halloween. The costume was SO cute, a little dalmation puppy outfit. Jammies really, so it was cute and functional being that I could put my passed out puppies directly to bed. Well, Tucker decided to break out of the mold and do something a little different. We were all ready and set to go to our friends Halloween party. I had my puppy dressed and ready. Then it happened.....he had one of those massive blow outs that only little babies are capable of. There was poo everywhere! I was thisclose to simply throwing the puppy outfit out. It was horrible. Halloween was ruined. I had NO back up costume for him and we had to leave. My mom had a great idea. She went rummaging out in her storage shed and came back with an outfit that fit perfectly. Yep, my boy Tucker spent his first Halloween as a girl! He wore the CUTEST ever pink dress and headband. Nobody would've known that he was in costume either. I mean, strangers never would have guessed because he looked so dang pretty with his blond hair, blue eyes and rosy cheeks. Man, makes me want a girl just thinking about it! So there you have it.....my Halloween story!

Lol! That is a funny story and quick thinking on your mom's part. I will have to keep that in mind if I ever need a last minute costume. :)

Too cute! I could have disguised my son when he was little, but now at 13 I kinda doubt it!
