It’s that time of year when my children are starting to plan their Halloween costumes. Every summer, I think this is the year I will do the right thing and make my child’s costume. One thing leads to another, and we are back to school, putting in a winter garden and preserving food.
I have to admit, I often take the lazy road and buy my children (gasp!) polyester costumes.
From a geisha to Cleopatra, my daughter has had some unique costumes, although she didn’t really know what they were nor did I want to give her a full explanation.
When my children were younger, I was a much better parent when it came to Halloween. I am still a stickler for organic candy and chocolate, but I no longer insist upon natural fiber costumes. Call me a hypocrite (I deserve it); call me lazy; call me cheap. Despite my unnatural costumes, I still held firm to no violent costumes, that was until this year.
