Rocking Our Parent Roles

The local amusement park dresses itself up for Halloween and hosts fun October weekends called Hallowboo. We took the boys over the weekend (Becky is over things like that, and was a friend's house) and had a blast.

I'm always enthralled by the costumes of the kids, and it was fun watching the never-ending parade of characters walking around. We saw high end costumes, handmade fun, and budget friendly versions of just about everything. Even the parents chose to dress up. I liked the mom wearing a tail, which was used as a handle for her young son to tag along behind. Nobody was happy with the whistle-happy clown. The parents who didn't dress up were in orange, or something very October/Halloween. Sam and I were not. We were dressed up as tired parents, because that's the costume that we rock the best.

That is exactly what I go as every year! Maybe one year I will get some extra sleep and remember to shave both legs and go as "The Put Together Mom" . . . though I could dress as a fairy and be just as mythical.
