I hate shopping for costumes, which is almost always put off until the very last minute.
I hate the candy.
I hate the trick-or-treating.
I hate the make-up and the hair color.
So this year I told the kids: I am not spending any money on costumes this year. I think we have enough dress-ups around the house for everyone to find a great costume.
And so they did. It was so much better. The kids had a lot of fun creating their costumes and nobody complained.
Best. Halloween. Ever.
Why didn't I think of this before?
