The difference in my girls personality really shows at Halloween.
Bailey loves Halloween and dressing up in general. Anytime there is a “dress up” day at school, she is all over it. The louder more authentic the costume the better….
Bailey thinks out her costume. She is thoughtful in her choice of character and specific about what she needs to pull it off (oddly enough, we had that wig in our basement). As you can see when she gets into her costume she slides into character.
Mia, on the other hand, had the opportunity to dress up for school this year and chose not too. “Nah, I don’t want to” was her response. Bailey was shocked when she heard this and did everything she could to persuade Mia to at least wear a hat. At one point Bailey declared, “You have to dress up! You’re Bailey Brown’s sister!.”
Mia didn’t budge in her decision (but had her picture taken in with her new carmex tho). When it came to a Halloween costume her only priority was that she wanted to wear makeup. Actually what she wanted to wear was “Gory Cheerleader” which was slightly disturbing to say the least. We had narrowed it down to Elasta Girl from INCREDIBLES, a mermaid, or Wonder Woman. When we asked her to pick one, Mia shrugged her shoulders and said, “You pick, I don’t really care”. I wish I had a picture of Bailey’s jaw as it hit the ground or a recording of her shocked responses. In the end, I was at Walmart, saw this cute Wonder Woman costume and bought it. Mia was thrilled with it and we promised she could wear red lipstick.
What they have in common is that they both have a blast Trick or Treating and eating their weight in candy.
