It's here! All Hallow's Eve, also known as 'Day of Free Sugar' in my house. I swear, my kids look forward to this day almost as much as Christmas. Noah has been counting down since September 1st.
Personally, I like Halloween. I have great memories of trick-or-treating in the dark, behind a plastic, flammable mask. The Handy Man hates today. Hates. It. (You can read about that here.) Whatever. I'm not about to deny my children free candy. It's also a good day to teach about sharing. With me.
I'm not much into costumes, though. I have a hard time spending $20 on something they'll wear one day. (OK, Noah would wear his for weeks if I let him, but still.) So, we usually go with something homemade, with lots of makeup added in. Tonight, we'll have a legion of zombies- so easy, rip up a shirt, put on some facial gore, and you're good to go.
But, there are some costumes that would be more appropriate.
Forget Freddy Kruger- teenagers are scary!
The Handy Man-
Yep, he's my knight in shining armor. Even if he does hate Halloween.
As for me? I'd like a pageant dress and tiara. My sash? That would be easy. It would say-
Meanest Mom in the World
