Maybe my theme for Sundays in NaBloPoMo will be ‘Things that happened three weeks ago.’ (Like my birthday road trip.)
Gabe went ‘trick or treating’ last year – but it was really just a few floors inside our apartment building since he wasn’t even walking yet. This year? Ooooh, baby. He got so into it.
I thought his cautious little self would be nervous about trick or treating; I expected to do no more than three or four houses. Instead, he went for an entire hour! He filled his plastic bag with candy and told every house, “Tank you!” It was so much fun.
This is why you have children:
The costume was a big hit with kids and adults. Several adults took his pictures and many kids squealed, “Look at the little rocket ship! How cute!” There is nothing cuter than a six-year-old calling a two-year-old cute.
As per tradition, I got this the day after Halloween last year for 75% off! I continued the tradition this year (grabbing some discounted peanut butter M&Ms, too, of course).
Holidays with a kid are so much fun – and now I finally like Halloween again!
