Bite me, Hurricane Sandy.
It has been raining for the last 7 days and I am starting to wonder if the sun has packed up and moved to another Universe.
I am considering buying myself one of those sun lamp thingies...or a tanning booth.
*Note to self. When your child insists on being a clown, do not buy the $2.99 makeup. Invest in some higher quality paint to do your magic or it will turn out like this.
*Do not buy huge clown shoes because your child will almost fall down the stairs at school and then refuse to wear them trick or treating.
*Do not buy a huge clown bow tie because your child will decide that he doesn't like it and will refuse to wear it.
*Do not buy a clown nose because he wont wear that either.
*Walking on a cold night when it is rainy, is never fun. Ever.
*Make a run for it when your dog pukes on some one's front lawn. The rain will wash it away anyways.
*Always remember pooper scooper bags. We didn't.
*If you buy your army dude kid a cheap gun to go with his costume, be prepared to be shot at approximately 83979864667980347 times.
*Warn your other children that they will be shot at 3879534876748306 times to prevent any fistfights.
*Consider allowing your four year old daughter to have permanent eye makeup. Nothing will ever make her happier.
*Prepare to tell your happy kitty cat daughter how beautiful she looks 658342756 times as she poses in front of you.
*As busy as the evening gets, make sure you go visit the great grandparents. The smiles make it all worth it.
*Don't get sad because it is the first Halloween that your kids Papa will not be around to see their costumes and eat their candy.
OK, be sad.
*Do not tell your army dude kid that he looks like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. He wont be impressed.
*Don't buy your army dude kid an army helmet and goggles because he will refuse to wear them.
*Remember that you're kids aren't young for long.
*And enjoy this time before they think it is "dumb".
