You knew he was different as soon as your son took a keen interest in shuffleboard. Ever since he was a toddler he lit up at the idea of pushing that weighted disc around.
It wasn't until he dragged you to that meeting about Floridian retirement communities that you began getting concerned about his social life. After explaining to him that you can't retire until you've joined the workforce he transferred his interests to making sure kids stayed off your lawn which, strangely enough, didn't make him popular.
On Saturday mornings your kiddo digs into a bowl of heart-healthy oatmeal and watches BBC documentaries on WW2, which is nice. There's no crazy Saturday afternoon sugar rush, you don't have to deal with him running around pretending to be the newest crime fighting guy in a cape.
But it becomes challenging when he sits back at the dinner table and tells you not to complain, you don't know how bad they had it in the old days. And when you tell him to eat his peas all you get is, "Eh, what'd you say?
You've pretty much given up and are feeding him his veggies mostly through Jell-O molds. You like your kid just the way he is but the life of an old soul can be isolating.
Maybe it's time to dress him up as an old timer and drop him off at the senior center, where he can hang out with like-minded individuals. Those senior citizens are sure to take him under their wings once they see his charming plaid bowtie and pants.
His balding head is sure to endear them as well. Anyway, if he's going to be a shuffleboard enthusiast he might as well learn from the best.
"It was a dark and stormy night" Every spooky story starts this way. In a fashion, the storm cloud is the star of thousands of spooky stories.
They're the reason people go into the haunted house, they give that dark attic some attitude, and that ghost story around the fireplace some flavor. When your child dresses up in this storm cloud costume he's sure to take on a thunderous personality.
Whether your kiddo wants to be the catalyst that drives the stranded travelers to seek shelter or he is simply an enthusiastic part of the water cycle, this cloud has character. The facial expression of the cloud isn't the face a cloud would make when producing a halfhearted sprinkle.
No, this is the face of a deluge, a determined storm that just might be taking down some major tree branches. This storm appeared from nowhere on a summer day and has people scrambling to take down their laundry hanging on the line and cart in their lemonade stands.
You always thought your kid was a force of nature, now he can embrace it. This is the one time when tantrums are allowed because you can't stop the storm, the storm stops you.
Although in this costume your kid will most likely let the clouds facial expression do the talking, he'll be too busy making wind and rain noises to fully take advantage of the tempest attitude. So whether you're looking for a unique weather related Halloween costume of your child is taking the school play by storm, we've got you covered.
But not literally; if you don't want to get drenched, bring a poncho.
