Do you remember the post on starting potty training (which by the way went by the wayside on hurricane day and hasn't started up again) and how my daughter had chosen the Cars boys underwear for her "panties"? Well, had I known how truly kooky she is about the whole Cars movie I would have never taken her to the Disney store to pick out her costume for Halloween. Well enough of the foreshadowing. Let me set the stage. Just had lunch at the mall, had watched an hour of ice skating at the rink (she looooooooves this), and both girls were in good spirits. We pass by the Disney Store!! Oh how exciting! The store is bustling, beautiful costumes abound, and music and licensed plush toys everywhere(and it is filled to the gills with shoppers). Here is our dialogue.
Me-Athena, look at this costume. I think it's Jasmine. What do you think?
Athena-Pretty momma. Look at the blue shoes, they look like crescents.
Me- chuckle They do don't they. Do you want to try it on?
Me-Oh baby look, it's Tinkerbell from Peter Pan.
Athena-the little angel fairy?
Me-yes, that one.
Athena strolls off just a tad to another part of the store.
Me-What baby? while still playing with Tinkerbell.
Athena-It's Cars! It's Lightening McQueen!
Me- Oh crap (in my head of course). Well, yes it is. Redirect..Redirect..Redirect
Me-Look at this one Athena, it's MULAN!!!!! Do you like it?
Athena-She's so pretty. Momma, I want Cars.
Me-You want to see it?
We took it down from the rack and it was a size 4T. Too big for my size 3 LITTLE GIRL, so I assumed that was the smallest size and asked the sales person, "do you have a size 3 in this" she said "no, no we don't". Whew. "Ohhh sorry baby, they don't have your size". The sales person says, "oh that will fit her perfectly. Here, let's get it on her". Sure enough. It fit her perfectly and she looked gorgeous and had a smile beaming from ear to ear. She wanted to show daddy and Saylor instantly.
So, it looks like for Halloween 2008 Athena Blaze will be
and very very happy ;)
