Halloween Momma Style

I admit it.
Halloween is not my favourite day of the year.

I don't enjoy being all creative and stuff thinking of the perfect costume and how to make my kids look better than all of their little friends.
I don't enjoy putting makeup on 5 year old boys who want to be some scary dude but insist on moving, fidgeting and looking everywhere but at me.
I don't enjoy bundling everyone up so we can walk around getting candy when we have bowls of it at our own house.
And I do not enjoy my children being on a sugar high for days and days at a time.

But I am their Mother.
And I love them.
So I smile.
I help them get ready....with a smile.
I put on their makeup.....with a smile.
And I take them out in the cold....with a smile.

Because I love them.
Even though they drive me bonkers.

So here you have it.

My children.
With their costumes that I spent hours looking for.
And their makeup that took alot of patience to do.

One day they will thank me for everything I do for them.

Including allowing them to have candy for breakfast.

And then sending them to school.

Because I am nice like that.

Your kids' costumes look great! We had that transformer too! And I let my kids have a piece of candy after breakfast and then sent them to school. I even let them pack a piece in their lunch. I'm nice like that too!

You are a good mother. The make up looked fantastic!

I see nothing wrong with having candy for breakfast and then sending them to school. That awesome!

Great costumes. I think any mom would not be excited about that much makeup. Wow...he looked cool :)

LOL...candy for breakfast!!!

LOL. Love the part about candy for breakfast and sending them off to someone else. Isn't that our only revenge?!

You made some awesome memories, but I agree about the begging for needless candy. I would be completely happy never giving my son candy, but that's just mean, right? This holiday is for the kids of moms like me: it's our culture to beg and devour candy against their parents wishes. You can't fight it. Good luck. =)

That is some pretty elaborate makeup! You are the BEST mom (and I'm sure they know it!) ; )
