#AtoZChallenge: W is for Wonder Woman

For Baby Girl’s first Halloween, I wanted all of us to dress up like characters from the Justice League or Star Wars. The family that nerds together — whether the youngest can comprehend what we’re dressing up as or not — stays together, right? (That didn’t happen then, since some individuals were non-compliant, but we did do a superhero theme for this past Halloween.)

When I was discussing Halloween costumes with the six-year-old Little Man back in 2014, I mentioned that I might dress up as Wonder Woman — and by dressing up, I meant wearing a Wonder Woman t-shirt and maybe a tiara. No bikinis or skirts or anything else form-fitting for this fluff mana.

Like many young kids, Little Man didn’t have much of a filter and would sometimes say anything that popped in his head. He also tended to take things very literally at times. (Both are still true to a degree, but he does try to be more careful about blurting things out.) As such, my Wonder Woman costume was shot down.

Well damn. No Lasso of Truth for me and my non-gravity defying derriere.

He did offer an alternative solution though:

This pleased me, since my son thought I was badass enough to go as the Dark Knight. I’m not the biggest Batman fan, but I will admit that his coolness factor is up there. That moment didn’t last long, though, as he followed that up with:

Thanks, kid! I guess a grappling hook would have been out of the question, too.

(For the record, when I did dress up as Wonder Woman this past Halloween, there were no objections.)

I’m a SAHM to two kids. When I’m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

  1. I choose to believe you’re less weighty than say… a 747?!? And THEY FLY, LM!
    I loved my Wonder Woman Underoos. Are you too young to know Underoos? I wouldn’t wear them now, cause they were a size 6x, but I loved them. I think my love for Wonder Woman subsided because of Strawberry Shortcake. Sorry I’m so girly. 😛

    1. Lol! Now why couldn’t I think of that 😜

      I don’t remember them but have heard of them. If you ever get into WW again, you could get yourself some adult footed pajamas. Be all cool and shit 😉 You know Strawberry Shortcake is a thing again? Saw it on Netflix. Seems like everything from our childhoods is being recycled. Now if they’d just make a see through iPhone.

  2. Daaaaaamn … when does the filter start kicking in?! My 3.5yo told me a few weeks ago that my “big butt was so full of puffies.” I think she meant it nicely, because it was soft and squishy (who’s isn’t, right?), but it sure hurt at the moment!!!

    1. Hahaha, oh lord! LM once told me he liked me because I’m like a big pillow. I get snuggles at least! I think LM’s filter kicked in when he was 8. He’s now Sheldon Cooper Lite.


  3. I love Halloween and I try to dress up every year even if it is only a mask and crazy hair. Wonder Woman is a great costume. I have been trying for years to get my husband to dress up as Alice from Alice in Wonderland originally so I could be the King of Hearts or the white rabbit. Now there is 4 of us adding the Madhatter and the March Hair would be my dream Halloween. However, he just won’t wear a dress! Haha, I’ll keep working on it thought. Great post.

    Thanks for visiting What did he say?

  4. Loved the writing, and the anecdotes! Yes, kids do deflate our egos in the most unexpected ways—and they do it with such an air of helpfulness too! Reminds me of the time when my son, then about 5, asked if dinosaurs used to be around when i was a child! I felt 65 million years old!
