Grace is super excited about Halloween. She has spent a lot of time scouring the costume magazines that we have gotten in the mail.
Grace decided that she really wants to be Bat Girl this year. (I have to say that I am pretty proud of myself for agreeing to let her be a caped super hero type of character...I would typically be very into a beautiful hand-made princess costume or something of that sort).
So, anyway, people have been asking Grace what she is going to be for Halloween.
I can't help but giggle to myself when she tells them.
She will proudly say, "I am going to be black Bat Girl."
Grace is just referring to the fact that she is not going to be the pink Bat Girl that she saw in the catalog.. I don't think most people know about the pink version, so they usually look at me and smile. Perhaps they think I am just really encouraging Grace to be proud of her AA identity (which I am), but it makes me smile every time she proclaims that she is "Black Bat Girl!"
