She hates her halloween costume.
It really is quite sad, because this little piggy is adorably cute--but Emeline wants nothing to do with the hood, which is the ENTIRE POINT to this costume. Welcome to the fun toddler years. Last year was so adorably sweet, because she sat still in her little horse/giraffe costume, and just complied. This year is fun because she can toddle around, and yet, she won't keep her dang costume on. Figures.
The best thing about this costume is that her piggy noise? A scrunched up face and then she breathes heavily through her nose as if to "oink", but it sounds more like she's about to hack up a loogie.
I'm sad because I totally forgot to get her pig noise on the video below. And also, I'm sad because I said, "Ducks flap their arms". Fail. They flap their.....wings. And also, at the end when my dog barks, she calls him "Daisy" (my parents dog). But despite all the errors, it's worth a look. Because kids doing their animals noises? Priceless, man.
So tonight, we will go trick-or-treating. With a kid in a puffy pink vest who will have coordinating leggings and onesie, but will not resemble a pig since she won't keep the dang hood up, and she'll beg for candy like the best of 'em
And then, all the candy will be mine, because who in their right mind gives an 18 month old candy? So, it sounds like a good deal to me.
Have a happy day, friends.
