Can you believe October is already half way over? Even more unbelievable is the fact that our house has been decorated for Halloween since October 3.
Who am I again? (Normally I am not this on the ball when it comes to Halloween decorations.)
I blame this unprecedented domestic ambition on being a work at home mom this fall and being high on caffeine all the time…or at least until noon.
Speaking of being high, my girls are SO jazzed about Halloween. I just wish they weren’t slowly moving toward the ghoulish and garish side of Halloween which makes me think of a parental pet peeve. All you parents who complain about your daughters liking princesses would you PLEASE FREAKING STOP ALREADY?
Because once the tulle and the tiaras are retired, see what you have to look forward to?
My 7-year-old wants to be the grim reaper for Halloween and my 10-year-old is going to dress up like a zombie soccer player.
I think the “dark days” of Halloween costumes started two years ago with the donning of a werewolf mask so oversized Miss A could have curled up in a ball inside it and taken a nap and the black goth fairy costume that Miss C wore.
It’s time to start eating copious amounts of Halloween candy and fantasize about dressing Zoey the dog up as a princess. She’s my last hope for a girly girl Halloween fix.
I may or may not be on the downhill slide toward becoming that crazy dog lady who dresses her dog up for Halloween and going out for a walk…every day of the year.
What are your kids going to be for Halloween? And let’s not forget the family dog, right?
