Oct 25, 2012 Cute vs Scary My wife and I have been talking about what our son should be for the Halloween. She wants him to be something cute, as I was thinking of him being something scary. However, she made a good point....we have only a few years to dress him up cute and cuddly. As he gets older, like most boys, he may choose to be a scary monster or a super hero. We will not get a vote at that time. So I gave in, and now we are brain storming on cute costumes for our son. I definitely will veto pumpkin or strawberry.
