Sarah Knows I Must Be Thrilled Right Now
Personally, I'm thrilled! Care Bears are cute and loving, non-violent with a positive message. The costume even looks comfortable and it's on sale!
About a month ago I told Noah about Halloween. I explained the holiday and told him that it was my absolutely my favorite day of the year as a little kid. I said that he could choose a costume and dress up as anyone or anything he wanted! It's a real great chance for kids to use their imagination. Noah picked a Care Bear, a purple one to be exact, and still now, some time later, he wants to be a Care Bear.
I really don't think dressing a two year old little boy as a Care Bear can do any harm. It's just for one day, it won't give him confusing gender messages and his friends are too young to tease him. Actually, to be honest, in any toddler costume that is gender neutral or has a hood, everyone will be saying all night "Oh! I like HER costume." Because Noah still gets called a girl if I don't put him in obvious boy clothes. So it doesn't matter and he doesn't seem to care or notice.
He REALLY wants to be Harmony the purple bear:
Then though, I saw that Bedtime Bear was on sale, unlike Harmony Bear and I was sold on Bedtime Bear, problem solved! Oh yeah and his sale price is good, the cheapest on the web.
So anyway, I'm thinking Care-A-Lot, here we come!
P.S. He saw this one and went nuts over it, but even I almost said "No.".
