I’m not one to spend a bundle on a costume for the kids, but I do (vividly) recall that there were a couple of years when one or the other of them had their heart positively set on a particular outfit. And sometimes I’m a sucker. (Oh, you try saying no when all your five year old wants is to have “real Buzz Lightyear To Infinity And Beyond Wings Mama!”)
Anyway, if you (or your child) have your eye on a particular Disney costume, right now Disney is offering $10 off select costumes, which still makes them more than most of us are willing to pay, but there you go. Sometimes a splurge is in order.
I won’t judge you.
