"Anything can happen on Halloween . . . your sister could turn into a bat" ~ Tim Curry
Happy All Hallow's Eve, folks. I can't believe it's already the last day of October. We were supposed to take Q to the pumpkin patch, weren't we? We were supposed to carve pumpkins, me thinks. We were supposed to make a creative and uber-cute costume for our little monster. Well, with T working a ton of overtime and me working two full-time jobs (Q definitely qualifies as full-time), these traditional Halloween rituals sort of fell to the wayside. I know, excuses. I admit that Halloween has never been my favorite holiday. I do love scary movies and I'm never one to pass on a "fun size" candy bar, but we've established here before that I'm not crafty and I think Halloween is all about flashing your crafty side.
Instead, Q will don a generic Darth Vader costume that's a size too small, with a hat he refuses to keep on. We're sort of trying to put a creative spin on it by making him MC Vader, but so far he's not digging the gold chains either. We're taking him to a party with our friends. Fortunately, he thinks they're all there for his amusement.
I wish I had more motivation to make this a fun holiday for Q. I tell myself he won't really remember this Halloween anyway. There's always next year, right? To become a better parent, I mean.
