So tonight as you know is Halloween. Of all the holidays, this is the one I hate the most. I hate all the scary movies that are on TV, I hate all the gross and bloody costumes, I hate the annoying commercials that try to be scary. I also hate the fact that I am scared to let my cat be outside today. Basically, I hate what the holiday itself represents.
BUT…on the other hand, I do like the “fun” and innocent part of Halloween where the kids dress up in their cute costumes. After seeing some little babies in adorable outfits tonight, I am excited for next year when we will actually be able to dress up our own child. I told Greg that in a couple years we will finally not be one of the families home on Halloween, but instead will get to partake in the festivities ourselves. We have discussed how we are going to treat Halloween, and I am so glad that we agree on how we should treat it as parents. We will let our kids partake in the candy gathering and let them dress up. I remember doing that as a kid, and it was always great fun. However, we both agree that we do not want gross or devilish costumes, nor will we decorate our house in such a manner. There are plenty of innocent, yet fun costumes and decorations out there to choose from. ..
