The preparation for this year's Halloween was certainly more thought-out than last year's. Missy decided to go as a pirate. Personally, I would've wanted to have given birth to a superhero this year. But I think there was a stigma of responsibility and behaving well attached to being a good guy that did not appeal to my young kid, that she decided being bad and carefree was a much better option.

My pirate
But who am I to speak? I, myself, wanted to don a ladybug costume but could not find one that was cheap enough for my liking. Not to mention, being tiny and being an insect at the same time had some serious repercussions it seemed. On a chance occasion, I happened on a vampire costume at Walmart for $20 and so a Morticia Addams I was meant to be. Another baddie at Halloween.

The pirate and the vampiress

Being the baddies that we were, the little pirate and her bodyguard vampire went around fleecing the neighbourhood for candies. We always seem to have great fun at being bad. Which begs the question, would we have as much fun if we had gone as Super Girl and Bumble Bee?
