Kids Play: Happy Halloween!

Lily: Mommy, what are you going to be for Halloween?

Me: I don’t have a costume yet.

Lily: We need to get you one! You need a mask (pronounced “mass”).

Me: I guess you’re right. I SHOULD have a costume.

Lily: I’ll help you pick it out. We go to the store and buy you one. And Daddy. Daddy needs a mask too.

How could I say no to that? So this past weekend, we went to Meijer and hoped to find the perfect masks while we were grocery shopping. They didn’t have anything my husband or I liked, but Lily was insistent that we get these too “frightful” (per the packaging) masks.

My mask is the one that looks like Freddie Krueger. When I put it on, she told me I looked pretty. My scary mask makes the baby laugh.

Lily keeps making my husband and I put on our masks and then she puts on a mask she made at preschool. Excellent pom pom ball placement, don’t you think?

While we are all wearing the masks, she tells us that our masks and her art project mask “match the same”.

We’re going to be quite the sight trick-or-treating– a kangaroo, a butterfly and two masked thugs.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
