With just a few days to go before Halloween, I mulled over what to buy for Kay and Cee this year. Last year they were a butterfly and a bumblebee. Spying a bright green alligator and a pink and yellow butterfly vest costume, I bought them home. Then my wise sis in law told me this was probably the last year I could get away with recycling and reusing old costumes. So, I promptly returned the ones I got. This time I lingered around fingering the other costumes. I must have counted at least five different princess costumes and an array of scary looking ones I assumed were for the boys. There was a niggling feeling of disquiet as I left the store.
This evening I got an email from Jennifer Siebel Newsom of Miss Representation that eloquently gave voice to that niggling feeling I felt the other day. Hop over here to read all about it and come back and let me know what you feel.
