so i mentioned in another thread that lucy was going to be charlie chaplin for halloween, because i know no one else will dress their baby as that and we won't have to spend a lot of money on her costume.
the thing is, though, that when i was talking to the people who work at her preschool, No one knew who he was! i thought he was a really well-known cultural icon, so it was a big surprise to me.
now i'm wondering if i should still dress her has that since both me and my SO know who she would be dressed as. but then. what if she gets there and everyone thinks i dressed my kid as hitler? because they've never heard of charlie chaplin and they just recognize the moustache. she goes to a baptist preschool and there is a jewish boy in her class, so it would be pretty much detrimental if someone, ANYONE, thought that.
what do you think?
