I ended up taking CootieGirl out for a little bit of trick or treating last night. We had about 40 kids show up at our house throughout the night. When CootieGirl came home from daycare she had a little bag that had some candy she got when treating there. We hung out with our neighbors for a bit in the front of our houses and I could tell that CootieGirl was a little intrigued. So I took her home to put on her tutu, but she demanded her Princess nightgown instead. So yes, my daughter’s costume was a nightgown over a pair of jeans. Fancy, right?
We stopped in at about 8 houses. She never said “Trick or Treat” but she was all over the candy. We only went to houses that had pumpkins on their front stoops (she loves pumpkins and therefore likes anyone else that likes pumpkins). When we left each house she’d look up at me and say, “Thank you, Mama.” Then we’d hit another house, and as we walked away, “Thank you, Mama.” It was the sweetest thing.
After the 8-10 houses we hit she insisted we go home and see Daddy and CootieBoy. So home we went. Upon arriving home she opened up two lollipops and a bag of pretzels and alternated bites between the three until the smaller lollipop and the pretzels were gone. The other lollipop had to be put away for another day at that point.
