Fall fashions: Nivana style

Posted by texasholly |

If you have been a June Cleaver Nirvana reader for awhile, you have come to expect Reid(5) to appear randomly as a blue power ranger. Let's take a look back in Nirvana history...

11/10/07

She has been seen mothering a blue power ranger...


1/11/08


3/11/08 Marked a brief departure from regular attire for this post entitled, "because the chicken suit was at the cleaners":


3/25/08
In "my list of things that might be OK at 2-4 years old, but definitely NOT even remotely OK at 24 years old:

#14. Wearing a blue power ranger suit 24/7."


6/11/08 Reid's birthday post:
"Your head is often in another world. A world where blue power rangers shop at Target and transformers pause to laugh at Gilligan's Island DVDs."


Reid has always had a dramatic flair in clothing choices. I didn't squash the public appearance of the blue power ranger. I figured it was cute, a phase and people would embrace a little boy in blue.

Reid's blue period lasted about 6 months. He still dresses up occasionally at home. His wardrobe has expanded. He is even mixing and matching outfits.

He is really excited about his next Halloween costume which we recently ordered and should arrive any day.

I have come to expect the unexpected.

So when Rhett(2) begs to dress up I am not surprised.

He didn't choose to be a power ranger.

A transformer.

A space man.

As usual he dances to a different tune...






The chicken dance.

I'm dying to ask him, "honestly, tell it to me straight, I can handle it, why DID you cross the road?"

I know your mama taught you better!

Completely adorable.

I've been leaving with Peter Pan for 3 years! Seriously, only brief breaks for the pirate version of Elizabeth Swan. But we the release of an updated costume Disney has us back to Peter this year.

At they gym I went to before I moved, there was a little boy who came to the gym daycare every day for about six months dressed as a muscular spiderman.

That is just the absolutley cutest thing I have ever seen..

Valarie said...

That is the cutest chicken ever!!

Lil Logan will randomly start wearing his fake muscles that he got to go with his wrestling outfit. Thank goodness we did not wear them to Target though. :)

Happy Campers said...

Oh my gosh. LOVE me some Rhett. He never fails to elicit giggles :)

Threeundertwo said...

What a face! We're you frying up his siblings or something?

~annie said...

I always getting a kick out of seeing little boys out and about in costume, having raised 3 boys myself. What a great way to get full value from the Halloween investment. What a great way to fuel imagination. Cute, cute, cute! Props to the moms who encourage (public humiliation)individuality!

And can you tell me how to do a strike through when I post?

Kim said...

So adorable! I love that you let them be themselves! : )

BTW, I wrote about fashion today also, but your boys have got me beat by a mile! : )

Louise said...

Choking from laughing. This will be even better in public!

My 4-year-old daughter is a fashionista, and there's no telling what gets on her body before we are rushing out of the house. She does it so I don't have time to change her. Imagine swimsuit over shorts (yes, they stick out under the legs), Japanese kimono, and go go boots. That's my favroite. And I can't leave her in the car...

Danielle said...

What an adorable little chicken!!!

Ron Davison said...

What are the odds that Holly's child might be seriously contemplating a career like the San Diego Chicken's?
Or, it it could be that in the future we'll have corporate workshops advocating acceptance of trans-costumed co-workers. "It is best not to think of your costumed co-workers as mocking your standard suits or golf shirt and khaki pants. Instead, you should think of theirs as an alternative lifestyle and your acceptance of their capes, beaks, and helmets as akin to the acceptance of people from other cultures and countries." I can see it now - cubicle farms with obese men in Lycra and capes, their underwear outside their pants and held in place by large belts, all because a generation of mothers failed to ever create a sense of shame about boyhood obsessions. The power suit re-defined.

Misty said...

thats adorable!

I can't believe we are already thinking about Halloween...

MoscowMom said...

Oh, so cute!!!! My kids go everywhere in their dress-up clothing... It was really funny two years ago when Katya was obsessed with "Little House on the Prairie" and would often wear the period costume I got her -- to her Russian school -- where she would proudly declare, "Ya pioneerka!" That means "I'm a pioneer"... but "pioneers" in Russia are kids who are members of the Communist Youth Organization. They must have thought that we were very strange Americans indeed...!!!!!

Mekhismom said...

What is that saying - Kids do the funniest things! Kudos to you for letting them express their "fashion sense" publicly!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Oh that last pic is just adorable--I don't want Rhett to ever grow up :)

Elizabeth said...

SO adorable. Gotta love a little chicken!
My kids have a huge collection of "dress up" stuff. Thank the Lord they have never dressed Snorkie Boy as a ballerina! They are often all over the neighborhood on their scooters...in Costume.
My kids start planning Halloween costumes on Nov 1st....
Blessings, E

Colleen said...

Ha ha ha ha ha...I LOVE the chicken costume!

SO funny!

jenn said...

How totally adorable!

Don Mills Diva said...

That last picture is absolutely classic - save it for his wedding reception!

Insta-mom said...

If I weren't certain that it would draw too much creepy traffic to my blog, I would share the picture of MiniMe dancing around in his underwear and cowboy boots. The boots that he wears EVERYWHERE, with everything, even though we live in Southern California and not near anything that would require actually owning cowboy boots.

Elaine A. said...

Oh my golly that last picture is the funniest thing I have seen in a while. So he's a polka kind of dude, is he?

We went through the Captain Feathersword and Train Conductor stages ourselves... I think we are out of the woods for a while anyway...

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

My boys dress up all the time, too. They love it. We have ObiWanKonobe, Darth Vader, Blue Ranger, Red Ranger, Shadow Ranger (SPD), pirate, Batman, Superman, and my oldest son (7) most often picks - a fuzzy caterpillar suit. Naturally.

KEEP BELIEVING

"The Queen in Residence" said...

Why is that song from "Jimmy Neutron" coming into my head.... The one where the parents are abducted and turned into Zombie sacraficial offerings for the Chicken monster. Too cute and so fun that you shared that with us.

Precious!

JenniBeanV said...

Cuuuuuute!

Marinka said...

I love the chicken costume! Does it come in 42 women's?

Anonymous said...

Oh man, what a punch line! I never saw that one coming :)

Rachel said...

That is precious, I love the feet sticking out.

Tootsie Farklepants said...

It's Foghorn Leghorn!

PAPATV said...

The chick costume reminds me of the elephant costume my mom made me wear every halloween. it covered my face and my mouth so when i went to the door not only did people pull my trunk they cut off my air flow. If my bag were bigger they probably would have stuffed me in it.
And all for a couple of candy bars...

Lisa said...

LOL How cute! I can't wait for those days.

Burgh Baby said...

The egg is red! The egg is red!

MoziEsmé said...

Aw - that is one sweet chicken! Way to go in encouraging your kids' creativity!

EatPlayLove said...

I hate to say it, but I am thrilled to see there truly is a boy version of frilly princess junky dress ups!

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

Oh, Rhett. Isn't that thing HOT! And, 10/11 for dinner? You never responded.

Shauna said...

Love it.

I am so glad that I may run into you at Target with your Chicken and Power Ranger with my Chase as Spiderman...and my girls....well.....they just end up a little hoochified in their clothing creativity. But whatever. I am with you on the intent to not squash the creative juices.

Roger said...

OMG! That picture is priceless!

Does he actually know the dance, and do you have your video camera ready? How cute is that!

Oh crap, Halloween hasn't come yet? I figured with all the Christmas stuff up at Target...
Now I have to figure out what the kids are gonna do.

Elaine A. said...

Just back to let you know that I have "awarded" you! : )
