The event of the season

Joseph will be hosting his very first party on Saturday. He's never had a birthday party with friends before partly because his birthday is during the summer and it's harder to get ahold of the kids he would like to invite and partly because the whole idea of a party makes him kind of anxious. So now we're taking away the pressure of it being a birthday party and we're throwing a Halloween party instead. Joseph is very excited.

He invited nine kids and eight (including three girls!) are coming. Thank goodness we're doing this at my parents house. I think that many kids at one time in our place would probably give me a nervous breakdown. We're going to be decorating pumpkins, playing games, decorating giant sugar cookies and giving out prizes for costumes. I think it will be a lot of fun. I know Joseph's looking forward to it.

The only dilemma I have is what in the heck kind of costume I can wear to this thing. Somehow I don't think the kids will appreciate what I had originally been planning to be - The Woman With the Every-Expanding Ass. Help me out here people. What can I dress up as for this party? Keep in mind that it has to be relatively inexpensive and must accommodate my glorious midsection.

Are you pregnant enough to be Rosemary? (Of Rosemary's Baby.) Not that the kids would get it, but it's about the creepiest pregnant-girl costume I can think of.

Go as Elaine from Season 5 of Seinfeld and always stand behind a counter.

Once, my sister in law just covered her tee-shirt with labels like "model" "teacher" "lawyer" "mother" "daughter" "wife" "convict" "gambler" etc... and when asked what she was, she replied, "I'm an identity crisis." Easy! Cheap! Funny!
