Last time, I was in the middle of telling you about all the fun the girls had at Halloween. That morning, the girls woke up in their Halloween pjs (the skeleton ones glow in the dark) and I made sure they had a good, healthy breakfast.
B kept reminding me that I told them they could eat as much candy as they wanted because it was Halloween. I reminded her that she had to eat healthy meals and then she could have whatever she wanted. I am a fool. I know it, but Halloween!
There was a lot packed into one little party. Stories read, a parade, snacks, rice crispy dipping with sprinkles, and a fun footprint craft (no pictures, because I was painting feet.)
The whole class.
Toilet papering B.
OK, let's talk about the party a bit. The teacher was great. She really didn't care what went on. But the school has declared that no food would be given or served. So the goody bags were non-candy (which was hard without giving junky junk, which we ended up doing, but there was a cool giant glow wand). Here's what pissed me off. The PTO provided a safe, non allergenic snack that was "healthy." Popcorn (and I won't start a huge debate, but is GMO popcorn really healthy). OK, I can live with the Skinny Pop, but they didn't give out any drinks. Not even some paper cups and a pitcher of water. Seriously, it is Halloween people! Give the kids some water!
The party was the last hour of school. So B and I came home and I sat with my feet up for an hour. I could never be a teacher. First, I hate kids, second, they are tiring! I was exhausted. But Halloween must go on. So, we passed out some treats at home then went over to the old hood for the annual Soups and Spooks party at a friends. There was more candy, more fun and more exhaustion (and some rain!), but it was all worth it (even the drink I needed, I mean had).
I will leave you with this face. Eating a corn dog.
If she wasn't born at home, I would swear she was switched at birth.
I don't know if I have ever had a corn dog.
