YAY! Finally posting pictures of Carter in his Halloween costume!! One of my favorite children’s books is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
As I was reading it to Carter one day, I realized Carter could be MAX for Halloween. So, I bought him footed pajamas, and then I added the hood, the flap with buttons on the front, a tail, and I cut the bottoms out of the feet and added elastic so he could wear shoes with his costume. Here is what Max looks like in the book:
The night Max wore his wolf suit and and made mischief of one kind
his mother called him “WILD THING” and
Max said “I’LL EAT YOU UP!”
That very night in Max’s room a forest grew
and grew until his ceiling hung with vines
and the walls became the world all around….
…And when he came to the place where the wild things are they roared their
terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes
and showed their terrible claws…
till Max said “BE STILL!”
and tamed them with the magic trick of staring into all their yellow eyes
without blinking once and they were frightened and called him the most
wild thing of all….
and made him king of all wild things.
“And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!”
