Mama Monday: The Halloween Edition

Well, if you are a mom anywhere in the United States, then you know what today is: Halloween. I joined the throng of families in our town going from house to house and asking the question, "Trick or treat?"

We had lots of fun. As Chipette said, "Halloween is my favorite holiday!" Guess she's a lot like her mom, because Halloween was my favorite holiday well into college.

It is such a hassle, though, buying or making costumes that will only be worn once before being stuck in the dress up basket, herding my children through the city streets (Stay on the grass! You are going to get hit by a car!), and dealing with the sugar fall out later.

So why do I do it? Because I'm a mom, and that's what we do. We sacrifice our comfort and convenience for our kids...at least we should. I will finish up this thought in next week's Mama Monday post, but for now I wish all of you mamas out there a Happy Halloween! And if you want to lace your kid's candy with a little Benadryl so they will sleep a little longer in the morning, I won't tell anyone :)

Happy Halloween from the boys and ghouls in the treehouse,
