It's on its way and should be here on Friday.
And my mother won't stop teasing me about it. She thinks it looks like a rat. Her favorite thing now is to ask people if they want to dress up like the mama otter to take her Trick or Treating (since she knows all about my Halloween aversion.)
She wants to put a big pink bow in The Wee One's hair so people will know she's a girl.
It's an Animal Planet Collector's Edition Sea Otter costume.
Okay, now you're all laughing at me. You're all thinking it looks like a rat.
Folks, this is how a NERD does Halloween when they'd rather be drunk watching football.
But you know what? I'm TOTALLY doing Halloween this year. WHOLE NINE YARDS (hey, did you know that's a football term?).
On Monday night we're going ToT (Trick or Treating, see TOTALLY INTO IT) at an event thrown by the local Downtown Association. Thursday will be the Zoo (they're closed on actual Halloween and Thursday might be a slightly-less-busy night). Friday afternoon is ToT with her daycare to a local business. Sunday will be actual ToT in the neighborhood (before bed for Monday morning daycare CAN I CLAW MY EYES OUT NOW ...)
Just you wait. More photos of a pint-sized
I'm trying, I really am. The first zombie-covered-in-blood I may puke, but I'm trying.
