I’m glad October is finally over but it was a kickass month. We did so many Halloween-themed things that my kids are now suffering from post-Halloween withdrawals.
We crashed two church Halloween festivals over the weekend. I think they were free to the public but we tried to keep a low profile just in case. Pastor Dan set his sights on Jamie and followed him around the entire night trying to strike up a conversation. My polite husband kept his head low and refused to make eye contact and we got away safely.
So, the second Halloween festival we crashed was at a church with an attached preschool. On the door of each classroom was this note:
Note how they crossed out the one confirmed case and updated it with the running tally. We’re so screwed, I woke up today with a sore throat and I’m positive I’m dying.
Elliot experienced her first kiss a few weeks back. She basically tackled a friend’s son at Gymboree and their hugging embrace turned into her planting her entire mouth over the poor boy’s mouth before he even knew what was happening. For the record, she doesn’t take after me.. no clue where she got all loosy goosey. Eh hem. Nope, not after me.
At least she didn’t bite him. She hasn’t bitten anyone at school since her one day suspension. It’s tough raising piranhas.
I’m suffering from Calendar Guilt. We keep getting calendars in the mail from charities and although I won’t actually use them, I can’t throw them away. What the hell am I supposed to do with them?
I’ve been reading this eco friendly website recently and now I’m all about going green. Like to the point where I’ve told friends and family all of my newly discovered green tips. And it’s probably annoying. Jamie and I are going to paint the roof white, I’ve been reading up on studies that show that it could reduce our energy bill up to 30% just by changing the roof color. You should do it too. Since I’m a peer pressure green pusher. I’ll check back with you next week to make sure you went through with it. Either way, here is the site I’ve been stalking lately, it’s pretty cool.
We have a red Cookie Monster stamp that we sometimes let the kids play with. They end up stamping and restamping their pudgy little legs to the point where CM is no longer recognizable. Then they just look like we beat them or put out cigarettes on their legs. At last weekend’s Halloween festival, I found myself nervously over explaining to a total stranger that we do not, in fact, beat our children. I’m sure Child Services won’t be showing up any second.
That’s all I’ve got, someone with a CPS shirt is knocking on my door..
Until next week, stop by and give Keely a shout. She’s cool. We should call her Kooly instead.
