Our first official Halloween came and went. Obviously they talked about it at school, because she knew all about it. I don’t think she expected as much candy as she got, but I guess that is something she will remember for next year. The week before I explained that she will be a princess for Halloween (hence the tutu I made for her). She was meant to wear a flower crown that she loved that my sister in law made for her. However, the day before Halloween, she declares, I no want to be a princess. I want to be a pumpkin. Well, dear it’s too late to make demands on costume changes.
The morning of Halloween, she was super excited. The tutu was the first thing she put on. But instead of the crown, she wanted to wear her googly eyes headband. I could not get her out of it. At school the teacher already had the camera out.
We came to pick her up early to take her out for her first trick or treat. The first house we stop was a little unfortunate because there was an old man in a wheelchair and his home care worker. He was obviously very pleased to have the kids come for candy (our neighborhood as in most places in the City, kids don’t go trick or treating at houses instead they go to the stores…super lame! Sam, next year we are coming to your house! We just invited ourselves over!!) Well, O didn’t do so well. She got scared either of the old man, the wheelchair, or the whole concept. But never fear, she liked getting the candy.
We only managed to go to three more houses because she was clearly getting tired, and probably coming down from the sugar high. The last three houses she actually said, Tick or teat! And one of the ladies asked her, What are you dressed as? She answers, I am O! Smart cookie. I say, you are princess! No, I A GIANT!! And there you have it.
After dinner she got a twizzler, and then went to sleep. Next year, I think she will be much more into it!
