Free Music Friday: Bad Religion Tribute Mixtape

Buying a Halloween costume for a 5-year-old is possibly one of the most difficult tasks a parent will ever undertake.  Picking out birthday or Christmas presents pales in comparison.  With presents, worst case, you can just let your kid go on a feeding frenzy in a toy store and just buy whichever toys they amass.  They go home happy.  You go home happy.  Halloween costumes are another difficulty level altogether.  First is the month long argument to decide who your kid is going to dress up as...if it's appropriate and if it's feasibly possible.  How do you logically convince a 5-year-old not to dress up as "Miss California?"  Or explain to them the social implication it comes with?  I just resort to, "Go to your room until you decide to dress up as something else."  It is effective.  After the argument comes the extensive Halloween costume scavenger hunt of traveling to twenty different stores to not only find a costume that your kid likes...but then to find it in their size.  She was originally going to be Dorothy from Wizard of Oz...but not one store had her size.  Not one.  I went to 20 stores.  And here's the kicker...none of them were sold out...none of them ever ordered that size.  Finally, after hours of tears and disappointment, we settled on an angel.  Now I have to figure out what the 2-year-old is going to wear.
