Momlogic's Jenny: I have been naughty. Really, really naughty. And boy, did my husband like it.
First, there was the Naughty School Girl (a la Britney Spears). Then there was the Naughty Nurse (I made a name tag that said "Nurse Booty"). Then there was the Naughty Dorothy (complete with ruby red PATENT LEATHER slippers).
You see, over the span of eight years, my husband and I have thrown some fantastic costume parties. His birthday is October 31, so we never have to come up with an excuse to have a Halloween party. But for some reason, I've decided to use Halloween/My Husband's Birthday as an excuse to dress provocatively. Okay, slutty.
But that was all PB (that's PRE-BABY). Not only has my body changed since my days of Halloween whore-dom, but so has my frame of mind. As a mommy, I'm a little bit more guarded and conscientious of how I dress. In fact, this past Halloween, I dressed up as a Cowgirl and the baby was a Little Sheriff. Adorable. Of course, had I not given birth four weeks prior and barely squeezing into my maternity jeans, I might have opted for a cute little jean skirt with an open flannel shirt sans nursing bra instead. But that's beside the point....
The point is that it's not that I need to start wearing "mom jeans" and culottes, but I think when it comes to Halloween, it's time for me tone it down and "zip it up." Maybe I'll dress up as Sarah Palin. Tina Fey certainly makes her look sexy...
Do you have a great costume? Tell us what you're dressing up as!
