Bribery

I'm not above it.

If you ask Rubie what she wants to be for Halloween, she will tell you, "The Little Mermaid." I am up to here in princesses over here. I know I should just let her be what she wants.............but I can't. I want one more year. I can't let it go. So, I did it, I bribed her. I told her that if she would dress up in the costume that I want for her (thanks, Kelly, for letting me steal your idea), then she can dress up like Ariel anytime she wants in her brand new Ariel dress up outfit (that cost 20$). Add that 20 bucks to the cost of the costume being shipped as I write, and you have one very expensive costume. Especially because I accidentally chose 3 DAY SHIPPING for 16 bucks! Because I need it here IMMEDIATELY for October 31st. dude. Let's not bring this up again, I'm still upset.

Now let's hope this doesn't backfire on the actual day of Halloween, when it comes time to put on the costume.

In case you are wondering what Ramon thinks of all this - yep, he thinks I'm crazy. As usual...

Here is Rubie in her new dress up Ariel outfit...

That is something I would do (well ok, I did and it backfired!) On the day of Halloween she refused to wear the Tinker Bell costume to go with her brother's Captain Hook, and she ended up in a soccer player costume :(. I pray that it goes better for you. Yes we might need to resort to prayer!

At least if she doesn't go for it, the Little Mermaid costume is still super cute. It is a good plan, though, but kids are stubborn. Karin, that would have been adorable!
