Last night at dinner we gave Jerry the ultimatum. He had to choose his Halloween costume and stick with it. See, Joann's is having some big 50% off sale today, so we're going to stock up on the supplies we need and then spend next week stitching up a costume. I gave him a few choices because I'm not allowing him to be a character. Why should he be batman when he doesn't even know who batman is other than seeing the image of batman a million times whenever we go to the store? Maybe I'm being a dictator, but it's good to be the dictator. Anyway, he had good choices - dinosaur, knight, pirate, any animal but dog. He chose PIRATE because pirates can have guns and swords. Good job bubba. Now we'll see if you can just stick with it through today and not have a meltdown when you decide in the middle of the fabric store, after the fabric is cut, that you actually meant knight. It wouldn't be the first meltdown you've experienced when given the choice between two things but only being allowed to choose one. We're talking monumental, "can't you control that child," middle of a quiet store, meltdown. But there is no more waffling. It's pirate or nothing. It's good to be the dictator.
