Chasing Imagination

Our kids love to play dress up all year round. There is no shortage of imagination and dreaming in our home and I love that about our littles. From princesses to superhero’s, and everything in between, there isn’t a day that goes by that imaginative play doesn’t somehow play a role. That’s the beauty of children. They show you how to live life to the fullest and rope you in to playing games and playing dress up just so you can see their smile and hear their laughter.

Each year as fall approaches and Halloween draws near, the catalogs start to arrive and the candy aisles multiply at Target, we begin our quest to find the perfect costumes. One that will last beyond Halloween, so no witches, goblins or scary costumes around here and one that reflects their interests. A costume that I know they will wear again and again and again.

See I used to be that mom
The one that dreaded this time of year
Buying costumes that were torn and broken before the night was over

I used to be that mom that felt I couldn’t measure up
I can sew, but sewing costumes is way out of my league
Pinterest was way too overwhelming
and since I’m not a lover of candy to begin with,
laying in bed with my covers over my head til it passed
seemed like a much better idea to me.


But then, two years ago I took a second look
I realized that the smile I saw
and the laughter I heard when we dressed up too
Made it worth the craziness of the holiday.
And overnight I became a super hero in their eyes.


I also realized that Chasing Fireflies gave me the chance or let my kids dress up more than one night a year. With their great quality and well made costumes, our kids are able to wear them and re-wear them over and over until they outgrow them. They can dress up with friends and run around and I have peace of mind that they aren’t going to fall apart. Chasing Fireflies brings imaginative play into our homes long after Halloween leaves and I love that. If you’re looking for a great place to find every costume imaginable for your littles that they will get way more than one use out of, you’re going to want to check them out.
