Halloween practice

Here is Millie modeling the pieces of her outfit before we made them into an alligator:
I thought she would like to help make it, so I tried to work on it while she was awake. Big mistake. There was much angry baby protesting, felt pieces all over the floor (picking up dog hair no less), and a certain Mama having a nervous breakdown/ temper tantrum. Millie and Sunshine Bear ended up in their room for a few minutes while the blue alligator and I regrouped. Luckily we both agreed to forgive each other, and Millie enjoyed a special treat of watching a Halloween show on the computer while I finished the alligator's head. But you won't get to see until tomorrow night!
After tubby time we practiced Trick-or-Treating. It started off a little shaky, but ended very well.

Round 1
(Millie knocks on the "door")
Mama: Well hello, little girl! What is your costume?
Millie: A pig.
Mama: Oh my. Ok. Would you like some candy? What do you say...?
Millie: Halloween! Soap! Pumpkin!

(Much coaching ensues)

Round 2
(Millie knocks on the "door")
Mama: Hello little girl! Don't you look nice. What is your costume?
Millie: A new, blue, green, white, pink, sofa, alligator!!
Mama: How lovely! Would you like some candy?
Millie: No thank you.


Round 12. Or maybe closer to 15-ish.
(Millie knocks on the "door")
Mama: Hello, who's there?
Millie: A new blue alligator!
Mama: I have some candy here, what do you say...?
Millie: Trick-or-treat!

We were in hysterics by the end. I was pretending to be shocked when she "ate" the imaginary candy instead of putting it in her imaginary bag. She loved that. I also taught her how to say "I need another piece for my Mama".
When Brady came home he took over being the person in the house. After she went to bed we worked on the costume together. Tomorrow afternoon we have a neighborhood party to go to, which will be adorable. Stay tuned!

    1. Can't wait to see pics of Calvin St!

  2. What are you teaching this kid?!? No Thank You to candy??? Too bad Teta Annie isn't there to show her how it's done! ox

    1. Not impressed by my polite child? I guess you don't want to hear then that while I was just taking a shower she "cleaned out" her room, then put all the upstairs recycling in a bag and brought it down to the landing.

  3. Whoa! Does she want to come live with Grandma!?

  4. What a halloween experience! Glad you captured all the words...she'll love hearing them back some day.
    The Blue Alligator turned out perfectly...good work! xoxo
