What a good son won’t do for his mother.
Those of you who have been following my musings know that Halloween poses a dilemma for this Gen X Yiddishe Mamme. I have already told you that my mixed feelings about letting our kids celebrate the holiday have been mitigated somewhat by my middle son’s decision to go trick or treating dressed as SuperJew.
Well, now my youngest, a LEGO building fanatic, has unwittingly further assuaged my guilt by choosing to go around the neighborhood this evening, plastic pumpkin candy bucket in hand, as a LEGO brick. Of course, he hasn’t read my blog (BORING!, he’d say), but somehow he might have just picked up on a vibe telling him that this kind of guise would be a good choice. Here are a couple of pictures of him modeling his creative, mom-approved, homemade costume:
But then again, he did go to his school Halloween party dressed as a vampire, black bat-like cape on his back and bloody fangs painted on his face. Now, would that count as pagan and ghoulish, or just scary and gross?
