What Halloween Means To Me

1. Standing out in the cold, going door to door and hoping that the people behind the door will give my kids candy  (now I know how salesmen and Jehovah’s Witnesses feel): 2 hours of my life I will never get back.

2. Hoping that no one throws eggs at me while doing so: there go another 10 naturally colored strands of hair.

3. Spending good money on costumes my children will only wear a handful of times: Buh-bye Mr. Jackson, nice knowing you Mr. Grant.

4. Hoping said poorly made costumes will survive being worn said handful of times: another bottle of hair dye.

5. My children getting excited to dress up and a fridge full of candy (which we will be lucky if we finish by Christmastime): priceless.

Happy Halloween and remember, if you don’t want trick or treaters, please turn your porch lights off. It makes it a lot easier on us parents!
