I get a little bit sad this time of year as all the children are beginning to anticipate Halloween and what costumes they are going to wear. Each year I think, "This will be the year that Mason will be excited about a costume." Well......I don't think this is the year. Don't get me wrong, Mason LOVES Halloween, and he can't wait for it to come, but he doesn't ever want to dress up. It is too different for him, and he is not a fan. He likes watching other kids dressed up, but he doesn't like to do it himself.
So.....yet again....I am looking for simple costume ideas that he can wear that is not too different then something he would normally wear. It can't be big or bulky. Basically the best costume for him is one that he doesn't even know he's wearing. Do you guys have any ideas? At one point he said he wants to be a skeleton this year, but he doesn't want to wear the little jumpsuit. Now whenever I ask him he says, "I just want to be nuffin (nothing)."
Let me know if you have some ideas of something simple I can put together so he won't miss out on what all the other kids are doing. Basically, I guess I am trying to "trick" him into wearing a costume, but I don't want to make him do something he's uncomfortable with. This is just another reminder that he is not a typical 4 1/2 year old. All his "friends" are so excited to dress up as their favorite super hero, but my little dude just wants to be "nuffin".
I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
