So my boyfriend and I had this really great idea for halloween. We're going to be the yellowbrick roaders from the wizard of oz. He will be the lion, I'm the scarecrow, my son is the tin man, and my daughter is dorothy. When we brought it up to the kids they were really excited about it and we started talking about how we'd make our costumes. We're gonna make really nice costumes so we can march in the parade, and we've already started them.
My son told his dad about it, and his dad told him that halloween is only for kids and adults aren't supposed to dress up, and if he goes with him for halloween he gets to be whatever he wants. So now he wants to be scooby doo and go with his dad. I'm totally annoyed about this, because he was excited about our original plans, all of us were. Any ideas on what I can do? Now my son feels torn between two parents. Should I just give up on the plans and let him be scooby doo? Should I let him go with his dad and find a new person to be the tin man? Should I try to talk him into it and talk to his dad about it?
