as this mama.
As you can see from my Halloween post, Hudson was Shaggy from Scooby-Doo (in the Mystery Machine) this year.
He actually wanted to be Daphne.
Really really wanted to be Daphne.
He cried his eyes out (true temper tantrum) in the Halloween store when I told him I wouldn't buy him the Daphne costume. I said "no" because 1. the costume cost $39.99. 2. It's a girl's costume. 3. Rob would have divorced me, and I need him around to finish fixing the Kitty House.
I am absolutely not homophobic, nor would I be upset if Hudson was a cross-dresser when he gets older...as long as he is happy. BUT...at 3 years old (going on 4 in a few days)...I do NOT want anyone, ANYONE, making fun of him, and making him feel bad. He's already too sensitive, and I would not willingly put him in a position that he may be ridiculed. For Pete's sake, a "mean" boy in his class said he didn't like Hudson's orange shirt last week, and it hurt both of our feelings.
But doesn't that boy from Nerdy Apple Bottom look so so happy in that picture? Happier than Hudson does in any of HIS Halloween pictures.
