I'm amazed he let you put it on him!! I'll never forget when I had gone to great lengths to sew a Robin Hood costume for my 3 yr. old son. I used no pattern whatsoever and it turned out really well - costumes are SO forgiving! :grin I even made shoe covers, the hat with feather, etc.
Halloween night came, I started getting him dressed and he screamed, cried and absolutely refused to wear the brown tights that went with the costume!! I had never, ever seen my son act like that before.
The incident was forgotten & we moved on.
Flash forward 4 years when I tried to get my next son to wear the same tights with the same Robin Hood costume. Same thing - a big crying fit that I had never seen my son have before!! All over those darn tights! :mad :mad They really did make the costume look complete, so what was the big deal about wearing them for a few hours?
What is it with boys and tights? You'd think they wouldn't have any biases against them at that age! Somehow, they both knew there was no way they were going to wear them. Maybe it's innate? =dunno
