    What’s a little candy among friends?

    November 1, 2007

    The Baby and The Boy

    Frankly, if someone was holding me by the neck, I don’t think I would be as cheery.  But then again, NO ONE is as cheery as The Baby. 

    Yes, ducks have blue legs since this duck mother was too cheap to go out and buy yellow pants to keep his fat little legs warm.  Who makes a costume that is like an oven but only covers the torso of a small child?  You can’t have a toasty kid with popsicle legs on Halloween night.  It ain’t right.

    The Boy decided he liked the “Halloween” thing.  We hid The Candy Factor til the last moment and when he found out, this is where he was when we walked to the neighborhood party…Dragon of Death

    Daddy missed the whole thing…neighborhood party…neighborhood hayride to trick or treat.  He was sad, in a, “I would have liked to have had three minutes worth of the experience” kind of way.  But Daddy had to be at his second job, so we can enjoy having lights ON in our house.  Thank you, Daddy.  We like light.  And heat, for that matter.

    He walked in the door five minutes after we got home to find The Boy sitting in a pile of candy.  Actually sitting in it.

    D:  You let him have all his candy?
    K:  Um, yeah. 
    D:  You let him have all his candy.
    K:  It’s Halloween.  How much can he possibly eat before we shut him down?
    D:  You let him have ALL his candy.
    K:  So this is what it feels like to be the fun parent?  I like it.  Who knew?

    Here’s a picture of The Boy showing you his lollipop.  The Baby is showing you, well, nothing.  It’s nice to see at the tender age of 8 months he is already copying his brother.  Great. 

    the halloween boys

    Can’t you just see them with a six pack in each hand 16 years from now?  of cheap beer, to add to the mortification?  Please note the glazed look on The Boy’s face that is clearly a result of that being his 7th lollipop.  I wonder how Dad would feel about The Boy’s Candy Breakfast?  Or Lunch?

      Duckies and Dragons – so cute!

      Meanwhile, the daddy at this house checked each and every piece of candy to make sure it was still sealed and no razor blades.

      Here’s to good men!

      Truly adorable! I agree about the costumes ours didn’t have enclosed feet, so we had a lion and a ladybug wearing white cotton socks — oh well!

      I drank three glasses of wine and watched the Paul Lynde Halloween Special DVD that I had rush delivered all while handing out candy to tweens in “slutty ref,” “slutty nurse,” “slutty witch,” and “slutty slut” costumes.
      Glad someone wasn’t thoroughly shocked by the holiday!

      Awww! They’re both adorable. And if The Boy has all the candy, that means you’re not tempted, right?
