FML - The follow-up
mattrd_fml Say more :
OP here! First off, for all the people inquiring about what the costume is, it is a plush dinosaur that his legs go into and his upper half sticks out of it. You can see a picture of it if you search "dinosaur" at costume express. And the issue isnt that he loves the costume, in fact he hated putting it on at first. The issue is that he wants candy and he wants candy RIGHT NOW. Thanks for all the suggestions. But now that a day has gone by, the costume is in a closet and he seems to have forgotten all about it.

What is he, the cookie monster?

you can say he's the cookie monster #1 but in all of us there lives a cookie monster who would gladly inhale candy without even chewing if it was good for us. or if nobody judged us for it.

That's great but I was trying to imply that that's what his costume was.

dude, the kids 2 years old, I doubt he remembers going trick or treating at 1 so I blame OP. OP shouldn't have gone on about it at such lengths for him to have a melt down that he had to wait. Any smart parent knows that's too much of a wait for a little kid. Sure try on the costume for dress up and let the subject wait til closer to Halloween.

@53, let's turn down on this emotional rant here and start using logic. Your criticism of OP here does not make sense and suggests you know nothing about 2 year olds or raising kids. What OP did made logical sense because if you wait until Halloween to try on the costume and it doesn't fit, then there's no Halloween. How would the 2 year old feel then? Think before you start attacking people, please.

Or you could actually read #53 comment and then you would see that he suggested trying the costume on as a "dress up" to see if it fit, and then wait until closer to the date to tell him it's a halloween costume and teach him about trick or treating.

@53 You assume the parents told him all about what the costume is for, but OP may have other children. Older siblings would already be making a big deal out of Halloween and telling their baby bro about wearing costumes and getting candy.

Try a countdown till Halloween (and trick-or-treating) the same way that you can get a countdown calendar of days till Christmas. That might help your son keep track of how much longer until he can use his costume and get really excited when the time comes.

No, I never did, and neither has my kid. Even I didn't go until I was about 8-9 because I misbehaved one year and my mom took my costume back and didn't let me go. What's fucked up is that I was born in Halloween.
