My first grader and I had this conversation this morning.....
Me - "So what have you decided to be for Halloween this year?"
Bigs - "I'm still going to be a cheerleader."
Me - "Great. Remind me to get that from Auntie Roz."
Bigs - "Julie was going to be a cheerleader but she found a HOT bumble bee costume instead."
Me - "WHAT kind of bumble bee?"
Bigs - "Hot. You know, really pretty. Like a sexy bumble bee."
So I am now in the "Are you kidding me?" mode. Her friend is also 6 years old and apparently wants to not only be a bumble bee (which I'm fine with) but a smokin' hot sexified bumble bee. Did I mention she is 6?? So why is it that all of the costumes now are sexy? Doesn't it remind you of the Friends episode where Joey is figuring out a costume for Monica (The One w/the Halloween Party) but in a really yucky way because we are now talking about kids?
So when exactly did Halloween become sexy? Can we reverse the trend? Pleases, please let it be so. Anyone out there with older daughters? What is the forecast like? What else will I be telling my kids they can't do that everyone else can? I'm OK with being the villain....because Googling "bumble bee costume" has ruined me. Look at the progression.
Really? What on earth??
