Baby Boo

Casper? Is that you?

September is almost over and I'm starting to feel the stress. Oct 31 will be here in just over a month (33 days from now, to be exact), and I know that the kids will finally decide on their costumes 5 days before Halloween.


It's the same every year. I'd ask them about their costumes in August and they'd decide on one thing. I'd start buying whatever they need and by mid-October, they'd decide that they want to be something else. Urgh!


Halloween used to be so much easier when they were little. I'd buy their costumes months ahead and be done until it's time to go trick-or-tricking. To her credit, my youngest has already made up her mind. In fact, she has been raiding the closet and putting her outfit together. Her sisters, on the other hand, are not interested at all. I know that they are excited to go knocking on doors with their friends but when I ask them about their costumes,they just shrug their shoulders.


If the last few years are any indication of what's to come, it probably won't be before Oct 25 when they'd decide on what they want to wear. Of course, by then every good costumes will be sold out everywhere. Ack! Hubby thinks that I shouldn't let them get away with their last minute demands but I can't help it. I love seeing the kids all dressed up in their Halloween costumes. Luckily, we've always managed to find some things that work but should they ever not find what they need, I guess I can always make them cut it out of paper.

"It's too bad that the outfit you want is sold out but no worries. Here's a stack of paper and there's my cutting machine. Now go make your costumes!"

Wouldn't that be fun to watch? Heh.
