Wouldn't be Diaper Swappers without some Christian bashing.

Classy.

OP, I hope your DS finds something to dress up as that makes him so excited he forgets all about being sad, whether it's Tink or Darth Vader or somewhere in between. My 4yo DS swore he wanted to be a flower and has recently changed his mind to an Angry Bird... honestly, a flower would be easier to put together!

OP I hope you'll let him be whatever he decides to be. It shouldn't be anyone's right to snuff a child's imagination and self expression.

Last week, Meijer had some cute Angry Bird costumes. Not sure if you have one near you, though.

Eh. I'd say that's just human nature.

Cute, but pricey. I was glad that DS was happy to be a $17 ninja.

Christians all come in different walks of life, and many have different beliefs, especially in different areas. Most Christians I know are very liberal, so um yeah, not sure where you get your stats on what most Christians are like, unless you know most of them, which I'm sure you don't.

Re: RELATED sad UPDATE: It's attitudes like this that continue to perpetuate ignoranc

OP: Your update makes me sad too. I used to work in childcare and i never would have said something to one of the children in my care... I probalby just would have asked if he'd have wings and everything. It's Halloween the whole point is you get to dress up as somehting you aren't. Honestly I would probably talk to the teacher in question... she probably has no idea how deeply her comment upset him. If you tell her maybe next time that sort of situation comes up she'll think twice before saying something like that.

If he's really convinced now that he can't be Tinkerbell because "it's for girls". Maybe you could suggest something like Oberon... King of the fairies. He could still be a fairy... just a boy fairy. Might help him get some of the excitment back if he could still have some of the parts of a Tinkerbell costume... wings wand etc.
