I always hear that being a parent to a kid on Halloween is a blast. Watching your child so cute in their costume, so excited as they run from house to house, their wonder...I have to admit, it was pretty awesome. Last year, our little girl had little reaction. She was only 1 year old and had just gotten over a serious illness. This year, though, she had this candy thing down pat. My hometown has trick or treating at businesses on the main strip for a couple of hours before the real trick or treating, so we got to enjoy that part with my family, and then we visited my grandparents and trick or treated at their addition. My daughter was running from house to house, even the ones without lights on. I think in her 2 years she is wise enough to know that being fast earns more candy because she ended up with a very full bucket in a very short time, although maybe she just earned more candy for being extra cute. ;) Being a mom and getting to relive all of these childhood memories through my children is seriously the best.
