“What do you want to be for Halloween?” I asked Bradley at dinner time.
“I want to be a hot dog,” Bradley said between bites.
He said it so matter of factly. He didn’t have to think about it. He just wants to be a hot dog for Halloween.
I tried not to laugh too hard. “A hot dog?”
“Yep. A hot dog, Mom.”
“I guess Collin could be the ketchup.”
It just so happened that Connie, my boss, was out shopping today and actually found a hot dog costume. Bradley loves his costume. It makes me laugh. He looks so goofy, but cute.
When I was taking Bradley’s picture in his costume I told him to smile.
“Mom, hot dogs don’t smile,” he said to me.
“Oh, just smile for the picture, please,” I urged him.
And he smiled his little smile and said, “Eat me.”
I was cracking up. We have also been having fun with, “You have mustard on you,” and “Where’s the ketchup?”
This is way different from his costume from last year (which I didn’t get to help pick out because I was in the hospital on bed rest).
AND…Bradley learned a new song at school today. Listen closelyto the way he says Kentucky Fried Chicken. 😉
