I think we need to work on the whole concept of Halloween a little more before next Wednesday.  She knows she’s going to be Tigger.  She wants to be Tigger.  When asked what she’s going to be for Halloween, she’ll tell you “Tigger.”  But this knowledge is superficial.

“What are you going to be for Halloween, Eirinn?”


“Are you going to dress up like Tigger?”

“NO!”, with a scowl and a furrowed brow like we just called her a stinkin’ yellow-bellied weasel.  She turns to the nearest toddler to discuss, in toddlerese, the ridiculousness of having to dress up in a costume in order for these idiotic grown ups to know that you are what you say you are.  If she says she’s Tigger, she’s Tigger.  Stupid.

“Do you want to be Pooh, instead?”


“Do you want to dress up like Pooh?”


And the same goes for princess, firefighter, Tinkerbell, butterfly.  Pretty much anything other than Pigheaded Toddler Wearing Regular Toddler Clothing.  I don’t think I’ll she’ll get much candy if I shove her to our neighbours’ doors dressed as…nothing.  And she’ll probably be screaming at the same time.
