And the Most Awesome Kid Costume This Halloween Was...

Never has anyone embodied Mike Ditka quite like baby Will Frazier

In your twenties, your social media feeds on Halloween are dominated by sexy costumes and drunken good time photos. In your thirties and beyond, social media on Halloween = babies in costumes. Cute babies, crying babies, trick-or-treating kiddos, kids eating candy, mom and dad (a.k.a. your former drunken good time buddies) with flashlights in hand. Scrolling through the photos and status updates is a totally fun way to cap the Halloween insanity as a parent.

I was lazily sliding through my own Instagram feed last night and all was status quo -- that is, until I saw Baby Ditka. Um, guys, this is the best baby costume of all time. Never has anyone embodied Mike Ditka quite like 17-month-old Will Frazier of Chicago. Ditka himself would surely say, "Da kid nailed it." Donning the iconic sweater vest 1985 Super Bowl Champion Coach Ditka is long-known for wearing, baby Will channels the NFL legend with his serious gaze, Ray Ban aviators and tiny mustache. The normally giggly and rambunctious Will is suddenly intimidating me -- just as the real Ditka would.

My babies were beyond cute in their giraffe and ladybug costumes yesterday, but I am the first to announce baby Will as the hands-down winner of my own unofficial 2013 Most Awesome Kid Costume award. 

I give you ... Baby Ditka!
