This weekend is Monster Mania, a horror movie convention. Bean has had an informal countdown going for months now. Judge if you must. Yes, I am taking a 3 year old to a horror convention. It is definitely not for me. I hate conventions... and I don't like horror movies any more than any other type of movie. But it is important to Bean, so we are going. Lots of big name actors and make up artists will be there, including the cast from The Walking Dead. Bean will be in hog heaven.
This morning Bean wakes up, chattering away about Monster Mania.
Bean: I am going to wear my purple fairy dress.
Me: That's fine. I'll pack it.
Bean: And zombie make up... and wings.
Me: Uh huh.
Bean: Are you wearing zombie make up, mom???
Me: Maybe. We'll see.
Bean: What about Dad? Is he gonna be a zombie?
Me: I don't think so, Bean. Dad doesn't really like zombie make up.
Bean: But he has to!!!!
Me: Why? He can be something else.
Bean: If he's not a zombie, I'll have to eat him. He's too big! I don't wanna eat him, Mom!!!! Make him be a zombie!
We will see if Dad gets onboard with the zombie thing
