Awww Nikolyn ... my heart breaks for you!!!!!! I have to tell you, a couple of years in a row my mom made me "old fashioned lady" costumes. So pretty ... sort of French Revolution, I guess, with the puffed loops over the skirts? She even powdered my hair white with cornstarch and piled it on my head. I was so excited. And know what? I still have the costume. Not going to tell you how many years ago that was ... but I've still got it. Someday, I get your son will look back and appreciate the costume you made for him!!! I hope he thinks to tell you!!!
