This was the first year my son really “got” Halloween. The kids dressed up adorably, stocked up on candy and, in Brooks’ case, ate too much as evidenced by the vomit in his bed come Dia de los Muertos.
In the end, I have never had so much fun playing dress up and holding my little giraffe son’s hand as he eagerly ventured from one happy pumpkin/spider house to the next, shrinking back from anything ghoulish or creepy. I like his taste. Hopefully he will skip the gory phase and just keep it light.
1. Costumes are fun
2. Dressing up is fun
3. Halloween sanctions both
My little peacock and giraffe had a blast! And I’m so glad they got to enjoy it with their grandparents!
