Last week when we were getting ready for Trick-or-Treat Street, it was clear to me that I had a decision to make. Would I make him stick with his original costume idea? Or, since we had a week, let him figure out an alternative?
I decided to work with him and try to make a new costume that he liked better. We all change our minds, sometimes for the better. I did warn him that his costume would be much less elaborate this year since we were designing and making this one in days rather than in weeks.
Although I ended up needing to make a last minute run to Target and Michaels for supplies the day before Halloween, I was excited to make a costume with him again this year. It’s a tradition I wasn’t quite ready to stop. It’s a Halloween memory I’m glad we made together.
