Trick or Treat!
At the end of a whirlwind week of three of us being sick, me trying to meet a self-imposed deadline, and meeting (but definitely not exceeding) all the expectations of Halloween (construction paper Halloween crafting galore, and baking my husband's mother's famous pumpkin cookies...) you might say that dusting for cobwebs did not make it to the top of my priority list. By Thursday, my four-year-old announced over lunch, "Wook, Mommy! D'spiders are hanging demselves up for Halloween!"
Um, well...indeed they were.
But cobwebs be darned, after takeout for dinner, and with dishes in the sink, we took off an hour and a half later than I anticipated...for trick-or-treating dressed as a family of pirates. And that's what counts.
