I think there are unfortunately, many signs that I must be the Halloween Scrooge.
No candy purchased. (Don’t ask how we appeased trick or treaters, please.)
Thrown together $3 thrift store costume for Buzzy that didn’t fit or match whatsoever.
No trick or treating.
No corn mazes, pumpkin patches, or costume carnivals.
“Happy Halloween, 2010. You didn’t come at a very convenient time this year. Maybe next year will be better.”
Even though I am obviously the worst mom in the world, and my sweet little boy sort of looks like an eclectic orphan child…
he’s obviously happy.
And that’s all that matters.
