No matter how old you get, there’s still a part of you that wants your parents to be proud of you.

We’ve all been there.  Maybe you’re out late past curfew, and you sneak in the house just to find your mom staring at you.  You’re clearly busted, and you prepare for a lecture.

But instead of screaming, she does something 10 times worse. She says those six little words…

“I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed.”

For some people, making their parents proud is pretty easy. For example, my brother has a PhD, has been a Bishop twice, and has made a career as an LDS Institute and Seminary teacher.  My parents couldn't be more proud of him even if he was made out of actual gold.Sons GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

And then there’s me. Instead of making a living helping other people or knowing a lot about the Bible,  I went the other way.  I’ve made a career out of telling fart jokes and acting like a 13-year-old boy who just snorted a whole package of pixie sticks. I Suck GIF - I Suck Chris Farley No Confidence - Discover & Share GIFsTrust me.  I know what it’s like to be the disappointment.

In this situation you have 2 choices.  1) Change and do your best to please them.  or 2) Lean into the disappointment and see where it takes you.

So, just in case you're some kind of a sicko who enjoys getting punished, here are a bunch of Halloween costumes that will help you and your quest to never be invited to another family baptism.
