So, I get a call today from my kids' school (DSD, 1st grade, DS, PreK).
It's the Speech teacher (both of my school aged kids have issues with this- DD3 doesn't, however. She is not going to need help!). I think, cool! She was able to finally meet with DS.
She's already met with DSD and tested her. Just waiting for her to test DS.
She was calling because my DSD had told her teacher what she's going as for Halloween.
The Bride Of Chucky. DS is going as Chucky.
This is how the call went-
Teacher- I was just calling to inform you that DSD is telling people that she's going at be the Bride of Chucky and DS is giong to be Chucky. I thought you should know.
Me- I know. That's what they are going as.
T- Oh. Is that what they wanted to be?
M- I had to convince them, but they are excited now.
M- They haven't seen the movies, just pictures of their characters.
T- Oh. Well, that's good, at least.
Then we said good-bye.
I just don't understand.
Why is she so concerned about what my kids have seen? Or what they are being for Halloween?
1st- They have seen Insidious, which is WAY more scary than any Child's Play movie ever made. And by the time I was DSD's age, I had seen, multiple times, Halloween (all), Friday the 13th (all), Candy Man, IT, all the Child's Play movies, and so many more.
2nd- The kids are not allowed to wear their costumes to school. So, HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU OR THE SCHOOL?
What would you do? How would you handle this?
Also, just for fun, my DD3 is going as Dolly Dearest.
I like my kids to be themed in their costumes. This year, they are all going as living, homicidal dolls!
Edit- FFS, people! The first kid who picks their costume sets the theme for the others. Then the other kids can pick something in that category.
Example- the first year DH and I were together, we had his XW's DS. Her DS wanted to be a ghoul, so DSD chose a with, DS chose a vampire and DD was a devil.
I wanted to pick this year. SUE ME! I buy the fucking costumes!
So, this ONE YEAR, I wanted them to be what I wanted them to be. Oh my God! I'm the worst parent ever! Someone call CPS!
Screw you judgmental people!
I have not chosen all their costumes. Just the first costume DS and DD ever wore and this years.
Get over yourselves!
Update- I have decided that I'm going to send in a picture of all three kids to the teacher, dressed up in their costumes.
You know how people do that, send pics for teachers they like, kinda like that.
I'm thinking of sending this one:
What do you think?
