Before we had children, I never saw myself as the one celebrating Halloween. Or more, creating homemade Halloween costumes for kids. I was never into skeletons and all the gory stuff that typically comes with Halloween. I also used to cringe at the thought of having to open the door every 5 minutes on a cold night to give out candy to overly hyper kids.
Well…Fast-forward to when our first born son turned 3 and began asking questions about costumes. At his pre-school at the time, they had a very cute little costume parade for all the kids and parents to come and see. We could opt out, of course. But, seeing the excited face of my sparkly-eyed toddler when he talked about his ideas and the possibilities of costumes, just might have softened my heart to the idea.
