Halloween High... or Low
We celebrated our first Halloween with Caroline this year. I wasn't super excited because she was really a year too young to grasp the concept of asking for candy! I also knew that I wasn't going to let her eat any of it, so I felt bad about taking candy from people. One man said "Mommy can eat your candy!". I about died because I used to think the same thing about when babies would go trick or treating. All in all, Caroline collected about ten pieces of candy that I now give to my tutoring students.
Halloween night started out cold so I was grateful that her poodle costume was warm. We went to my sister's house because she has a LARGE extended family which means more excitement. However, I quickly learned that Caroline was overwhelmed and didn't like the large crowd. Tim and I went trick or treating with her by ourselves and only went to a couple of houses. She enjoyed trying to pick out her candy out of the bowls. I really think next year will be more exciting for her. I am already thinking about next year's costume. I am going to have my mom make a stellar costume for our little "monster"!
