Rock the Pizza Slice? Juice?

A Massachusetts blogger has come to my rescue, and is my second guest for the week.

Momma Kiss writes over here, lives with and loves her hubs and two boys, sometimes makes me spit coffee out my nose, and is adamantly pro- pigtail.

I heart her.

In an effing big way.


Rock the Pizza Slice? With Juice?

My 5 year old son wants to be Batman for Halloween. He’s wanted to be Batman since he was 3. I finally found the right costume, for the right price (ebay) and so this year he’s getting his wish.

We’ve been trying to bribe the little guy into being Robin. And we’d put a cape on the dog. I mean, C’MON! How freakin’ cute would that be??

Well the 3 year old has other plans.  I was putting him to bed tonight and again, begged him to be Robin for Halloween.

“Nope. I’m gonna be PIZZA!”

Um, ok, “What kind of pizza?”

“A RED ONE! And I’ll be 2 slices. But no crust.”

I’m envisioning a slab of mushy, red cheese with no crust and how the hell am I supposed to make that?

“Ok, pizza, we’ll work on that.”

“No, wait Momma, I’ll be Buzz Lightyear!”

perfect, we have that costume, which I’m about to remind him of and he says

“WAIT – WAIT – NO, Momma, I’ll be a glass of juice. Your juice. The soda kind that you put raspberries in.”

*owl eyes*

“The juice in the shiny glass that me & my brudder don’t like because it smells funny.”

“You mean Momma’s Juice?”

“Uh huh, that juice you always drinkin’.”


He wants to be a glass of wine for Halloween.

I’m pretty sure I can whip that up real quick.

After I finish this glass…

    I’m surprised neither of my kids came up with wine for my costume.

    Hubs has been all secretive about what he’s going to be. The kids ratted him out last night.

    He’s gonna be Batman.

    I wonder if they've got that costume pre-packaged?? If so, I'm so totally balls in next year!

    On second thought… it might 'cause an ambush if you're trick or treating in a suburban neighborhood. Might want to hit up the hood this year, I hear they prefer Pabst.

    Ha! Much easier than 2 slices of non crusted pizza!!! This makes me think of one of Wyatt’s 1st Halloweens. Dale was batman, tight costume and all, and Wyatt was Robin! Cutest thing ever and totally unlike Dale! It was a blast. They were so adorable! Good luck! Can’t wait to see pictures!

    Doh! I bet that makes a momma feel *real* good. Especially when he trick or treats and people say, “What are you this year?” and he responds with, “Wine! Cuz my momma really like it!”

    Batman and his side kick Momma juice. I can see it now.

  7. thestoriesofatoz says:

    A glass of wine sounds like the perfect Halloween costume for a 3 yr old! I wonder why Pottery Barn hasn’t jumped on that one yet :)! Probably because all the Momma’s would be wanting a sip! So cute. Kids are hilarious. My 3 yr old changes his mind daily about what he’s going to be as well. We’re trying to talk him into being a dragon to go along w/ my 6yr old’s Hiccup get-up. No luck right now. He wants to be Hiccup too. Go figure.

    LOL! Now that is one funny kid.

    Great post.

    And I want to see pictures of how this all turns out.

    Hey kid. You better lay off momma’s juice if you know what’s good for you. The only thing that makes Momma Kiss a Momma Bear more than her kids is her liquor.

  11. Alexandra174 says:

    Sorry to laugh, but this is the wonderful thing about boys. From the beginning, it begins with food.

    I think of how Baby E wanted to be coffee and toast one year.

    I love it.

  12. Val says:

    LMAO. For reals. How could your kid not be hilarious. He’s yours.

    And a glass of prosecco? With berries. At least he’s got good taste. :p

  13. KludgyMom says:

    OMG. he is too much! That’s HILIARIOUS!

  14. Shell says:

    Oh, I love this! At least he’s just calling it juice.

  16. This is so funny! I’m replacing “wine” with the word “juice” from this point forward, lol!

  17. That is FANTASTIC!!!!

  18. LOL Oh how funny!! Can you imagine a kid coming to your door dressed as wine?!

    My youngest wants to be Batman too. All the time, not just on Halloween.

  19. MadWoman says:

    Love me some MommaKiss and Big and Little Kiss. I so thought this was going to be about rockin' the pizza slice as matter of personal hygeine (ie bikini wax).

    You know a boxed wine could be fun!

    My daughter will be a cat this year. And yes, I'm cheap and lazy.

  20. You done brought the funny. Love it! But am seriously already beginning to hate Halloween. The Chalupa wants to be something different every hour. I’m just going to have to decide for him and shove him in it last minute. Maybe like a martini with his head as an olive! We can trick or treat together! The Adult Beverage Brigade!

    Oh, man, my favorite part of this is that he doesn’t want any crust on his pizza costume. Um, yeah, let me get right that.

    That’s the kind of request that’ll make you need a glass of wine.

    Oh, HI. It's Me…your friend MommaKiss.

    I sent some friends and then didn't come by myself.

    Thanks for sharing your space with this booze bag and her funny kiddo.

    That? Is hilarious.

  24. capabilitymom says:

    Too bad you don’t drink cheap boxed wine – that would be the BEST! Easy to make and a riot!

  25. Jenine says:

    Now I want a glass of juice.

  26. Natalie says:

    Oh, that’s hilarious and sad all at the same time! My kid would do the same. Anytime after the twins go to bed, he always asks me “Why aren’t you drinking wine? The babies are sleeping so it’s okay”. Sigh.

  27. Jean Has Been Shopping says:

    A glass of wine?! ROFL! Great idea! I think I’ll be that too.
