Another Halloween has just passed. The festivities started out with my Baby’s school Halloween parade. The whole school circles the parking lot twice to “The Monster Mash” playing in the background. When my Princess was in the toddler class, she pretended I wasn’t there. As soon as my Baby saw me, she wanted me to hold her hand while she walked in the parade. Toddlers are so unpredictable.
After the parade, the class got together to take a group picture. There aren’t many things cuter then a group of 2-year-olds in costumes. My Princess had her school parade at the same time so my Grouchy Husband and I had to split up parade duty.
Later that day, we went to a nearby town to trick-or-treat. The town closes the streets where the shops are so they can hand out candy to the kids. This year, I let the girls be whatever they wanted. My Baby wants to do everything her big sister does so they were both Cinderella.
My girls don’t just give me simple smiles when they pose for pictures anymore.
These are silly princess curtsies.This is just being silly.
Trick-or-treating wasn’t such a great experience and involved a lot of crying. My Baby was scared of all of the costumes so cried and wanted to be held. My Princess was scared of our friend who was dressed up in a hot dog costume outside our hot dog store. How can she be scared of a hot dog costume when we own a hot dog shop? You win some, you lose some. We’ll try again next year.
