Just like my country, I’m young scrappy and hungry– and I’m not throwin away my, not throwin away my SHOT!!! We listen to a lot of Hamilton around here. Ha! Marlowe and Major have even gotten really in to the movie of the musical on Disney+. As a huge Hamilton fan myself, I love that we can listen to the soundtrack again and again as a family, and that the kids are getting a little subliminal history lesson alongside it. The songs have sparked lots of questions in our house about the American revolution, history, and Alexander Hamilton. It’s been interesting to answer them. Not gonna lie, I have to google for most of my answers. I’m learning right alongside them! The cutest thing has been listening to Mateo sing along to the soundtrack as well. It’s hilarious to hear the lyrics coming out of a tiny little body. LOL.
This year, for one of our Family Halloween Costume inspo posts, I knew we had to do a Hamilton theme! Major wanted to be George Washington, Mateo is our rambunctious and confident little Alexander, Marlowe is Eliza (duh), and I figured I’d be Angelica Schuyler…since all Marlowe and I do is fight for Mateo’s affection. It’s pretty perfect. I will say that Mateo is majorly NOT in to wearing costumes this year. He’s interested in it off of his body, but hates the feeling of wearing it on his body. Anybody else struggle with this with their toddler? Not quite sure what to do about it for actual Halloween, since he lasts about three minutes and then tears it off. I vaguely remember Marlowe being similar when it comes to costumes, so maybe he’ll grow out of it in the next thirty days. LOL.
Let me know how you like this costume idea, and stay tuned for two more posts with family Halloween costume inspo for this year!
