Writing a Halloween costume submit on November sixth is somewhat bit like publishing a vacation reward information on New 12 months’s. BUT— I promised. And that is the one manner I’ll get forward of the sport subsequent yr.
Thanks to everybody who submitted pictures on my fb web page and on instagram (@mommyshorts). I am unable to submit all of them. Not even shut. I selected a small sampling of the costumes that actually stood out.
Not even my very own kids ought to have made the minimize since Mazzy and Harlow didn’t even come near the creativity of the youngsters under.
And Mazzy wins for “Most More likely to Freeze her Ass Off in a Costume that was Manner Too Tiny to be 4T”. She was Tinkerbell and that is the primary yr she chosen her personal costume…
I want I had photos that illustrated how fearless Mazzy was her pursuit of sweet on the streets of NYC. The second we went outdoors, she bought this look of objective on her face that I’ve by no means seen earlier than and strut down the sidewalk like she owned it— head held excessive, arms swinging like that they had someplace higher to be.
There’s loads of bizarre Halloween stuff within the East Village and Mazzy had no drawback main the best way into shops populated solely by adults in scary costumes and demanding sweet.
This was the primary yr we trick or handled outdoors of our house constructing and I need to say— it modified my opinion of Halloween in Manhattan totally. All of the shops had been open, adorned for the vacation and the store house owners had been sporting superior costumes and giving out sweet.
I let Mazzy eat all of the sweet she wished which labored out nicely as a result of it seems she hates the whole lot besides lollipops and plain chocolate. Snickers, Twix, Twizzlers, and so forth. had been all spit out in my hand.
The deal was that she might eat as a lot as she wished on Halloween however then that was it. No saving the sweet to eat one after the other for weeks and weeks.
The subsequent day, she requested for a lollipop. I mentioned, “Keep in mind what I informed you? The rationale you had been in a position to eat a lot sweet final evening was since you could not have any after Halloween was over.”
