I know most of you are celebrating Halloween today. I wish you a fantastic day- fun and fair weather! We had it for just a few hours, last night, and let me tell you that I am super-ok with that and don’t need to see it again until next year. Mainly due to the barf.
I know they’re not over their line. But still! The craft, and costumes.
Yesterday I was a crazy woman running all over town, dragging the twins with me getting ready for the expat club Halloween party later in the afternoon. We had trinkets still to purchase, cupcakes to make and people to face paint. Not to mention pick up B at school, feed/nap/and so on. It was a day that I planned down to the minute- and even a semi truck blocking the road nor a person parking on top of me so I couldn’t get in my car– could deter me. We totally made it to the place on time to decorate and the party went off without a hitch (craft included!) until C threw up in the middle of the floor.
Sidenote: My friend made a super easy and awesome game that you can do if you need something last minute.
It wasn’t his fault. I was too busy making sure that everything was going ok with the party and the kids craft (because seriously- me having a successful craft was like unheard of) so he was taking advantage of the free-flowing apple nectar and unlimited candy. He didn’t really eat lunch, and we hadn’t had dinner yet so the poor little guy had so much ick going on that he just couldn’t take it any longer.
Sidenote- this was the first time I have experienced one of my kids barfing.
So, we left- hoping the worst was over and picked up dinner (McD’s- not the best idea when one of your kids has been barfing) came home and he puked a few more times into the corner of the couch. That was about enough for me, I plopped the kids in the bath, we put them to bed- and by 8:30pm we all (myself included) went to snoozeville.
Today we’ve woken up to a brand new day- that’s actually Halloween, but the memory of barf and how much running around I did yesterday kind of makes me relieved that there is no Halloween today (here). I can watch you guys from afar having fun, see your pics and hear your stories. Live it up! I had my fill.
And if you need something scary go read and watch my post about the Krampus from earlier this week. I love that guy! Boo!
