Daycare had a dress-up day today and Babess was thrilled to wear her pumpkin suit. This is an outfit we bought 4 years ago in the US, for -$5 (it was $5, but pushed our total just over $50 which qualified us for a $10 discount… so they essentially paid us $5 to take it). It’s very cute, a little orange velour jumpsuit with green leaves around the neckline and a yellow jack-o-lantern face on the tummy. It hasn’t had a lot of wear – Fainjin grew out of it before we really had an occasion for it. It’s sized for an 18-month-old, and is the perfect size for Babess now.
She danced around as a “ponkin” happily all day, and proudly wore the costume all the way home. Of course, she’s the least round pumpkin you’ve ever come across, which might explain why The Dad overheard a passerby say, “I think it’s a carrot…”
