It’s that time of year again, when the two-month Halloween holiday begins. Across the land, parents begin hearing the common refrain:

For Halloween, I want to be…(fill in stupidly difficult costume here)

I’ve been lucky. For the last few years, both of my kids have wanted to wear the same storm trooper costumes over and over. I mean, not only is it cheap and easy, but it’s a Gen X parent’s dream.

Anne sent me this photo, telling me this little man was holding a spiderman costume. However, the loser Gen X’er in me has a much more exciting plan for this snoozy costume. Namely…eXtraterrestrial.

Oh, come on! This is totally an alien. Totally.

I realize from past naps that Spiderman is one of the most soporific costumes. I do. I know. But this nap goes straight to the X-Files for XTRA FABULOUSLY SLEEPY!

The truth is out there…and it’s very relaXing.
