One of the many perks of becoming a parent is that you have a legit excuse to go all out during the holidays. Getting amped about Christmas shopping? Completely normal. Dressing a baby up as cupid for Valentine's Day? Totally not weird—as long as the baby is yours. And Halloween is no different. You suddenly have license to enforce themed looks, no matter how kooky or complicated. So if you have a little prince in your house, then you might want to consider some mother son Halloween costume ideas that will be totally Pinterest-worthy.
If you're anything like me, from the minute you found out you were going to be having a son, you immediately began to envision all the adorable and fantastic duos you two could dress up as. I lucked out because my son came out of the womb ready to entertain, so he loves to put on a good show. And no production is complete without costume and wardrobe.
