Halloween!

Is it bad that I convinced my son not to be Buzz light year for Halloween?

See, he really wanted to be Buzz...

But..

The Buzz costume was SUPER dorky.

It was one of those one piece suits..

and..

I figured half the boys his age would sporting them.

So I did what I usually do when I am in public and want my way...

BRIBERY.

He tried on a super duper cute costume.

I gushed and gushed.

The costume lady gushed and gushed.

I knew that this was it.

He was going to be wearing this costume for Halloween if it was the last thing I did.

He still wanted the Buzz costume.

I could tell we were on the verge of a battle...

maybe even a tantrum...

UGH!

So..

Whats a mom to do?

"If you get the other costume, I'll let you get a sword!"

and like any typical boy..

It was a done deal!

Tip number 132 for new parents: Some times bribery is easier then a crying and screaming toddler!!

and I'm Mom enough to admit it!

I agree with you! Bribery is the best way to go than letting the child scream, but unfortunately it doesn't always work. I tried this yesterday, but still ended up with a child throwing a tantrum.

I can't wait to see what the costume is!
