I want to be ???? for Hallowe'en

Matthew has been talking about Halloween for awhile now.
I like Halloween; in fact I plan to take a vacation day to spend halloween with my monkey like I did last year (the year before I was on mat leave).
And, we have of course started to talk about.
Thanks to daycare, his cousin and Mike and I Matt totally understands that Halloween is all about dressing up.
So the other day I said to him "what do you want to be for Halloween?"
He said "I want to be an elephant for Halloween."
I had planned to make him a cowboy, but I'm discovering that 2 year olds have their own opinions on stuff, and he most certainly does not want to be a cowboy.
Ok.
So every day I have asked him what he wants to be. And every day he has said "I want to be an elephant."
I have looked all over the place for an elephant costume. I have looked everywhere - with no avail.
But tonight I FOUND IT!!!
When I ran into the Superstore for a few groceries and some diapers I found a toddler's elephant costume. So excited.
I ran through the store, hopped in the car and said to Matt: "So ... what do you want to be for Halloween?"
His response:
"I want to be a Monkey!!!!"

You should tell him he's already a monkey and that he can still be the elephant he wanted to be all last week!

That's too funny cause I totally saw an elephant costume when we were at the Superstore by us last night and was about to phone you when I read this.
Only Matty! LOL

My $0.02: hold on to the elephant costume... you can always return it the night before Halloween if he holds firm on the monkey plan. I'll bet that he'll be back on the elephant bandwagon once he sees himself in the costume.

(Side note: my little one loves seeing herself so much in her costume that we can no longer let her wear it because she never wants to take it off!)
