The baby slept through it all.
T-boy pronounced when we left that he didn't have fun.
"Why not? Didn't you like getting candy?" We asked.
"No, I lite da zoo bedder when deres no tandy, on'y a'mals!"
I guess we can't win for losing.
The best part of our adventure?
Mr. Loggerhead took us here for supper that night. T-boy forgave us for his ordeal when we ordered him shrimp. It was two days before Halloween so everyone thought we were crazy to be out in costume. I love it when I'm mistaken for a nut-case. It is so liberating.
For the record, Mr. Loggerhead changed out of his costume before we went to the restaurant. I'm sure he got enough looks without an extra three inch layer of fur. His winter beard is well on it's way. Everyone probably thought he was a 'logger' for Halloween. I wanted to say,
"Nope, people, not for Halloween - for LIFE!"
The next day, T-boy decided candy wasn't so bad. That was after I sorted it for them... Okay, okay, AND removed MY favorites! Motherhood comes with a few perks. Stealing- I mean - Snitching from your children's Halloween candy is one of them.
You know, when I think about it, I actually wouldn't want to be able to say those things about us. I like the way we do Halloween just fine. A little hap-hazard and less than perfect... that's us.
P.S. Please don't take offense if I described your Halloween in the first part of my post. Some people can't help being goody-two-shoes. We all have our problems. [wink, giggle]
