Here is our Thomas the Tank Engine.
What else did you think he'd be in this, the year of Thomas?
We made it to three houses. I figure that's not bad...three years old...three houses.
After the second house he said, "Mommy, that's enough for me."
I said, "OK, but you have to go to Ms. Debbie's house." (Ms. Debbie is his daycare provider who lives up the street)
He said excitedly, "Oh, yeah, ok."
After visiting with Ms. Debbie, I asked if he was ready to head back to Grandma and Grandpa's house and he said, "Yeah."
I said, "Do you want to stop at a couple houses on the way back?"
He said, "No, that's ok...I've got enough candy."
I kept reminding myself that I didn't need more candy in my house and three houses was perfectly respectable at his age.
Plus, it meant I didn't have to face the same people we saw last year and so excitedly told we were expecting Alex. Not once did I have to explain or cry.
But I really wanted more candy. Thankfully, my parents (read my parents=my MOM) bought too much candy and wanted to unload it (mom's diabetic and dad needs it about as much as I do...lol). So I've got some chocolate for this week. :o)
All in all...a decent Halloween. We survived it. Now on to Thanksgiving...
