It might be the last time we can put her in a costume without her prior approval.
In this age of commercially-purchased costumes that replicate licensed characters, (a norm both girls flagrantly disregarded), we were asked more than once, "who is she?"
I entertained myself by answering, "a blonde Asian princess."
This girl nearly caused an identical incident to the scene created by the other girl last year. Fortunately, the woman infiltrating her space came bearing chocolate, and peace accords were hastily reached.
We went out in the neighborhood tonight: four kids, two parents, probably more than 100 houses. E had two friends over, and L was the little-girl tagalong. We saw four-year-olds being pushed in strollers but L walked the whole route. One of E's friends gave up under the weight of his bag, but L hauled her haul all the way home.
Nobody bother to tell that girl she's little. She wouldn't believe it anyway. She was fantastic, and she (and we) had a wonderful Halloween.
