I had a fellow teacher let me know that she was going to be calling in a sandwich order to pick up for herself on the way home and ask if she could get something for us for dinner. I thanked her profusely, how I would LOVE that!!! BUT, I had to tell her that on Halloween I work hard to be "cool mom." Two years ago I just didn't know how to fit dinner in with work and picking up from day care and getting ready and trick or treating, so I decided to just let them eat candy as we walked and that would be our dinner. You'd think they'd won the lottery (we don't do candy much!). It worked, they thought it was the coolest thing ever, and we did it again last year. And Olivia still talks about it. That is what she was most excited about this year! I figure it's one night a year, why not. :) So we passed on the sandwiches and went with the candy. :)And had so much fun!!
However, about three blocks or so into the trick or treating, we ran into 6 college agers dressed as witches, and Liam lost it! :) He was scared, poor buddy. He would NOT walk. And of course I didn't plan for this and had no stroller or wagon. Boy that kid can get heavy in a costume after walking a couple blocks! lol I got a very funny video piece of what he was like when I had to set him down for a minute to regain feeling in my arm. I'll try to post it if my dial up won't kick me off in uploading! :) All in all, a great Halloween. And after I threw out the remainder of the candy we still had from last Halloween, we had room for more in their Halloween candy jars. (And mom has her own stash in a bag in the cabinet!)
