It doesn't need to make sense. It doesn't have to make sense. You should not fit in a box. You should not do what everyone else does. You should do you. And do you imperfectly fabulously. Trying to fit into any group's or anyone's boxes will only kill who you were made to be.
And as a mom I will dare to let them be different.
Back porch fires and pumpking carving before 2 hours of trick or treating ending a fun night with sleepy eyed kids, and way too much candy.
Halloween these last two years has been quick and fleeting and seemingly smashed in between other plans, birthday fun, trips and thoughts of christmas decorating the week after! This year I went all last minute again, had to hunt around town for pumpkins again like last year, and did last minute costume purchases with my best friend amazon prime. But you know what, as parents Sam and I gave what we could this year, did what we could with the time and energy management we had and that is all that matters to me. Because if I wear myself out trying to go above and beyond when I don't have it in me I will be exhausted and none of us will enjoy the fun. So cheers to last minute halloween times and next year we'll try again the best we can!
