Happy Halloween, Dear Gracie

Dear Grace,

I don't like Halloween. I hope to hide this fact from you until you're old enough to a teenager; I don't want to rain on your parade.

Really, though, I don't like to be afraid. I'm not one of those people who finds it cool and fun and exciting to be scared. I hate being scared, actually. I don't like scary movies. I have nightmares.

I would like to forgo Halloween celebrations for the rest of my life.

But… (imagine my long sigh here)

I love you more than I hate to be afraid, and when I got a note from your school about the annual Halloween parade, I couldn't ignore it. I asked my Twitter friends where I could get a fun costume, and they told me what I already knew. I should sew one myself. I packed up you and your Dada, and we went to the fabric store.

Where I spent $45 on materials to make a costume so that you could celebrate my least favorite day of the year.

I know you're going to love it. It will make you happy, and it will make your dad happy, and that makes me happy.

Happy Halloween, Dear Gracie.

Love,
Momma

  1. I don’t like to be scared, either, but I love Halloween. It’s always been a fun holiday with our friends.

    I can’t wait to see what you make for Gracie. 🙂

  3. Hubby and I finally reached an agreement on Halloween, at least for this year. We’ll go to Trick or Trunk at our church, that’s it. LB’s costume will probably be a football player. Hubby has been given the task of finding a jersey. One less thing for me to do!

  5. Can’t wait to see what it is! I’m sure Grace is going to be as cute as always 🙂 My baby’s going to dress up as Winnie the Pooh in a bee costume (strange, I know… but it was free!) and the 4-yr old is going to be a ballerina.
