10 Ways Not To Dress Your Kids For Halloween

Oct 30, 2015 by

It goes without saying that any costume with the word “sexy” in it should probably be avoided, but there are other ways for parents to fail big time at Halloween…like costuming their kids as TV’s famous meth-dealing duo, a pack of smokes, and yes, even a condom. Check out 10 epic Halloween costume fails.

Spooktacular Halloween Crafts For Your Little Monsters

Oct 29, 2015 by

I am a lover of holidays for many reasons, one of which is the excuse to try out some fun arts and crafts projects with my kiddos. With Halloween just around the corner I thought I would share a couple of spooktacular crafts that I recently did with my littles, and that you may want to try out with yours! I’m pretty excited that Halloween actually falls on a Saturday this year. I’m just wondering how many times I’ll be asked, “Is it time to go trick-or-treating yet?” before dinner. Perhaps trying out one (or both!) of these crafts can help keep your kids entertained until it’s candy o’clock!

Gain an Hour? Not So Much.

Nov 3, 2014 by

It’s been several years since I’ve been excited to “gain an hour.” Gone are the days of staying out that extra hour at the bar because I know I’ll get to snooze through the time change. Now I’m angling to get into bed as soon as possible on a Saturday night because only extra super early morning chaos can await me on the first Sunday after Daylight Saving Time ends.

By some miracle, my youngest had just started to sleep until about 5:45am again after waking up at or before 5am for months on end. Here we go messing that up for moms everywhere with our silly Daylight Saving Time. I still have to explain this to people who aren’t the ones getting up with the baby. Her normal wakeup time is 5:30am. New 5:30am is old 6:30am. Old 5:30am is new 4:30am! But it will be light earlier? Yeah, that’s not a good thing. And as it is she doesn’t care if it’s dark or light, she’s up like clockwork well before 6am. And babies don’t tell time. I’m totally screwed. My husband says stop being pessimistic. Well, who is the one getting up earlier than any farmers? I think I have a right to expect the worst. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised and they’ll adjust quickly.

My Mom Halloween Costume

Oct 29, 2014 by

Are you excited for Halloween?

1

I’ve never been a huge Halloween fan.  The whole concept seemed silly to me.  Why would you want to dress up as someone else and walk around begging for food?  Ok, so I dumbed it down a bit, but you know what I mean.  This year the girls seem to be excited about it more than usual.  Kitten is older now so she understands it better and for whatever reason they are super pumped about their mom-made M&M costumes.  (They look pretty cute if I do say so myself.) And I’m very happy that they won’t be one in a sea of 50, 000 Elsas this year.  BORING!

Letting My Daughter Make Her Own Choices (Even When This Makes Me Cringe)

Oct 29, 2014 by

Last year my then 2-year-old decided to be an electrician for Halloween (like her daddy). I was over-the-moon about this! Working in the field of women’s rights, I know that girls are often steered away from non-traditional jobs/fields even though they are more likely to provide higher wages and better economic stability. So when my girl picked electrician as her choice of costume I got on board immediately. I ordered her a tool belt and construction hat and she even wore some safety glasses. She loved it and I beamed with pride thinking of my little girl bucking gender stereotypes at such a young age.
