Halloween Lunchbox Jack O’ Lanterns

Every Thursday Phoebe has Show and Tell. Every Thursday at 7:51 am, Phoebe reminds me of said fact, and I take off in a sprint trying to find her something to bring. It can’t be just anything. It has to be something that starts with the letter of the alphabet they are studying. This week it was “O”. Phoebe: Mommy what can I bring? Me: Let’s see. Warwick: How about an Octopus?

So today I put on my Adidas basketball shorts, a hole ridden softball T-shirt and set off to hang, sort, and decorate for a holiday that will fall exactly 29 days from now. Phoebe was there, helping me dig through the boxes, admiring the spooky decor, and pondering the wonder we would create. Phoebe (4) : Mommy! Remember last year, how I had that Cat IN. MY. ROOM? Wasn’t that cool??? *these Beast eyes* Me: Read more […]
