We decided that we are going to skip trick or treating this year. I keep thinking that I should feel bad about it, but I don’t at all. I guess this is a good time to admit that while I did dress her in a costume last year, I used the same costume the year before that.
We tried a few houses last year and I ended up carrying her most of the time. She doesn’t like candy (I can’t believe it!) so the idea of trick or treating seems pointless. I may find a costume for picture taking, but most of the costumes in her size seem like they should be worn by teenagers. Maybe I’m just getting old.
In school they are doing all kinds of Halloween themed activities. Next week the class is going on a field trip to the pumpkin patch. We’ll be chaperoning of course. They take public transportation, which should be interesting to say the least. Lately R. hates any outdoor venue that is not a playground.
We drove by a pumpkin patch over the weekend and she screamed at the sight of it. I warned the teacher, and she was not concerned. She said She won’t be the only one having a fit. An elementary special day class is going also, they do this every year.
