Last year, my kids didn't really get Halloween because of the Snow-tober snowstorm we got here in Jersey
that left our roads essentially impassable, our schools closed, and mothers like myself forced to eat the trick-or-treaters candy all by ourselves.
We all do what we can do.
Last year we were able to make the most of our Halloween day at home, dressing-up the stuffed animals in homemade Halloween costumes:
and turning clementines into Jack-O-Lanterns with Duck Tape.
But the reality outside was that Halloween really wasn't gonna happen.
So this year, call me first-world, but I am really hoping my kids get a good Halloween.
Even if that means I get less candy.
Because us mothers? We're selfless like that.
Happy Halloween and wishing safety to all riding out the storm.
