Mommy I want Fireman!

Halloween is around the corner and I have yet to find the costume that C.J insists on wearing. We've tried to make him Superman, Batman, Spiderman and a Police officer but he is holding to his word, "Mommy I want fireman!" So the hunt continues. I've found a few but none in his size, so I've been checking the sites daily just in case they get more. FINALLY m favorite oriental trading has them in his size, YEAH!! and its $19.99 WHOO HOOO (really that seems expensive to me but I saw one for an infant and it was $30). I add it to my shopping cart, but decide to see what other costumes they have that's when I saw this:
Future Hip-Hopper Toddler Costume
Why? LMBAO
This is so full of stereotype, the big chain "Word to your mommy", the boom box, the visor, Wait Visor when did that become a staple of Hip-Hop. All poor Vanilla ice is missing is a four finger ring and a gel flat top. HAHAHA.

Then this... The lil buccaneer. I'm not sure I would want CJ to wear this. Those boots in particular would have me rolling on the floor laughing. And what does a toddler know about a buccaneer anyway....
Then I checked out the adult costumes just fo kicks. HAHA, I didn't get this one at all:
Jones Momma...
What is a Jones Momma? Ladies if you are interested the hat and the shoes are sold separately. HAHA

There were so many other funny costumes for kids and adult costumes, go look for yourself.

Im impressed that kids still want to dress up as fireman and cops.

Ha! I've been having that same problem w/ my son. We can't agree on a costume. I'm picking out Batman and he's picking up Scream masks and all that craziness. He's a bit older than your son though.
We'll get it together though. Haha!

I think it is cute he stuck with what he wanted, fireman. Even though I am sure you probably didn't...
But you're a great mom for sticking with it and getting it for him.

As for those costumes...hot mess

@Clnmike he's only 2 so he's still pretty innocent. but the day he ask to be Jay z or something I'm going to just cancel halloween hahaha

@Kitty Ugh not scream masks. I got into a real big fight with a teenager in one of those two years ago. I make sure to have my mace on halloween.

@Jaded I will SOOOO never speak to you again if I see you with a visor on. NEVER

@Eb well Mr F$%K it works at night so you know that counts him out. that's all I will say for now.

@Kieya Oh is that what it is.... I didnt even know grennwich had a hip hop culture. color me vanilla

@Lena Well guess who changed his mind today as mommy was tracking the order, that would be CJ now he wants to be batman.
