Yup - my baby was 1 month old when we took this picture. My husband and I usually like to get really clever for Halloween. We've been political and topical. One year we were the phrase, "If it's yellow it's mellow, if it's brown flush it down," commenting on the California drought situation.
But then I had a baby and moved into a new house. So with boxes everywhere, still recovering, sore and tired I did not feel like being creative. But we also felt totally guilty that we were not doing ANYTHING. Not a one kid came to our door for trick-or-treat. What a bust. I whined to Daniel - "What are we gonna be???? We have to do something!"
So we started looking around the house. What do we have? Well - someone gave us the shark bathrobe and well - that just seemed EASY. SO we started with that. Then colored on some paper, attached it with safety pins, smeared ketchup all over and made some faces.
My baby was crying almost the whole time we took about 10 different photos. But - it worked and we laughed and we posted this on Instagram: megmessmer. Literally that was the ONLY thing we did on Halloween was this picture. And guess what? It was awesome!
So don't stress out about costumes. Find some condiments and smear them on yourself. If nothing else, it'll be funny!
