Well, I got sucked in. I dressed my poor daughter up for her first official Halloween. What did we do? We just walked around on Saturday at a local festival. She was way confused, and just sat in her stroller like “Mom, can you get this outfit off me? And why are all these kids dressed like DJ Lance or cowboys?”. It was fun for us as new parents. I feel like Halloween is a little pointless for babies, it’s us parents that want to see our little babes in something ridiculous.
I am really bad at Halloween. I always wait until the LAST minute to get a costume, then am really cheap so get something ugly, then feel gross on Halloween and cannot wait to get out of my costume. I have been to way to many bad Halloween parties, and then I can probably contribute several cavities to my trick or treating as a child. (I totally remember sneaking some candy out of my bag and hiding it my room, I know, hoarder). I don’t know why, but I also avoid handing out candy (I still have not bought any and it’s today). Oh man, I suck at this stuff.
But, while I am bad at Halloween and don’t particularly love it, I thought I should start out my daughters life with a little fun. I really do think it can be a fun holiday if done right. While trick or treating kind of freaks me out in general, food from random people, getting dressed up can be fun, especially if you are a kid. Being silly is good for kids.
So my little kitty got to crawl around and act like one. She was adorable.
If you are getting all dressed up today, have fun, be silly, and act like a kid again. It’s good for us adults to loosen up and look a bit weird.
