October 6: Belle and Lumiere
After TODAY Parenting Team Contributor Midlo Mommy shared her kids' handmade "Beauty and the Beast" costumes on the TODAY Parenting Team, the crafty mom got real about the challenges of producing homemade Halloween gear.
"I wanted to sew up coordinating costumes for my two children, but had little sewing experience," she wrote. "I was so exhausted from sewing together the Belle costume that I gave up on the Beast and my son became the candlestick."
"Now I can cross hand-making children's costumes off my mommy bucket list."
We think you did a pretty great job, Mom!
