I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm a bad mother...it seems my kid is the only one year old on the planet that doesn't have a Halloween costume. I really don't see the point! He certainly doesn't "get it" and I think anything that I do for Halloween will be for ME, and not really for HIM, and I'm not really a big Halloween fan. I see Halloween as an inconvenience that only gets in the way of CHRISTMAS...I mean, seriously, if it wasn't for Halloween we could go straight from Thanksgiving into Christmas, and I'd appreciate that much more than all the silly blow up pumpkins I keep seeing on people's front lawns (Digressing - BLOW UP PUMPKINS!!???!!!! What happened to carving pumpkins??? Do people need to take the art out of EVERYTHING??!!)
People have asked me if I'm taking him trick-or-treating?? That's a big old N-O!! Why would I? So I can get a bag of candy that will sit on the dining room table, and I'll proceed to eat it all, because I have the will power of a snail??
I'm having last minute Halloween guilt...maybe I should at least go get a pumpkin to carve or something...but there are 2 wee pumpkins sitting on my porch that I grew in my own garden...does that count?
