Can't Wait for Halloween!

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. Chalk it up to a lifetime of candy worship. Now that I have a daughter I am all atremble with anticipation. I spent the past week pondering costume options, and finally settled on this:

Yes, Wonder Woman. (Are you listening, Atreau?) The kid in the picture isn't mine, by the way; she's the model whose photo was paired with the etailer's description of the costume, which I found completely irresistible:

"Wonder Woman has her origins as Diana, daughter of Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons. The Amazons are a group of immortal warrior women. They live on the hidden island named Paradise Island. Wonder Woman entered a personal combat contest and won. The prize she was awarded was to be an Ambassador to the outside world and become a Super Hero. Now you can be a Super Hero too in your Wonder Woman Costume!"


At 28 inches long, Fia is at the 99th percentile for height, which I think makes her an honorary descendant of the Amazons. Add to that the fact that her mommy is an outspoken feminist and her daddy flies a plane (albeit a visible one), and you'll see with perfect clarity, just as I did, that Wonder Woman is the ONLY Halloween costume for my girl.

LOL! Yeah, he does. He got his pilot's license while we were dating. Just like Angelina Jolie. *rolls eyes*

She totally has to be WW! I have to find my WW pictures from childhood, there are the Halloween ones and the underroos. I was a tall child and ended up being a rather short adult.

You guys are like the Jolie-Pitts without the fame and drama!

Do you think that G would want this: Orga-Knee-Zer ?

I won one this year and have no use for it, will gladly sent it to you.
