My Superman
by Karla ° Saturday, October 31, 2009
This year, Nate was dressed up as Superman for Halloween. It wasn’t a strategic choice or anything, it was totally the only costume that fit at the consignment shop because that is just how I role. Yes, I accept hand-me-downs and shop second hand for children’s clothes because I just can’t justify spending $30 on name brand toddler jeans that he will outgrow in a week. Or, I guess in Nate’s case a year, because dear lord my almost three year old still fits in 18 month sizes.

So, yeah, his costume cost all of $6.00 and when I brought it home the smile on his face alone was worth every penny (and more.)

And irony of all ironies, Nate is absolutely my little superman in every possible way.

the best part is, it does not look like a typical cheap bagged overpriced costume. It looks like something he can play in long after halloween. My boy was Batman. YAY superhero boys!

What a sweet little man. Just adorable!

I can't look at his costume b/c I can't see past that perfect smile!

Karla, you have one incredibly adorable superman on your hands.

Looks like he can easily fly away with your heart =)

So adorable!

I get the wearing the jeans for a year thing....LOL! My 3.5 year old just now had to start wearing 2T (thank goodness I had some with an adjustable waist!!). He was in 18 months at the end of spring and I thought he would still be in them when fall rolled around. He had a major growth spurt (and weighs a whopping 25 pounds!!) and 18 months jeans are high waters (but still fit in the waist). I have a 7 year old boy, too, so I save his clothes to pass down, but I still buy used!
