Mom dilemma: picking a winner among my children

by Traci Schumacher on Wed, 12/11/2013 - 9:52pm

The evening wore on, and my children were busy amusing themselves, chattering back and forth between their bedrooms. From another room in the house I could hear my son and daughter talking excitedly about some new scheme they were collaborating on. As I listened, I gathered they were planning a Christmas decorating contest, and my daughter wanted me to be the judge.

My son protested, “We can't have Mom be the judge. You know who she always picks to win.” My ears perked up, and I wondered if I unknowingly favored one child over the others.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Who doesn’t love seeing all the kids dress up as their favorite ghost, ghoul or goblin?  For the adults out there, pretending to be something outlandishly different on this holiday can be lots of fun as well.  Why let it stop there?  Why not take this opportunity to dress up your pet and let them join your family in the Halloween festivities?  Pets in costume can be some of the cutest things you have ever seen and most pets enjoy all the extra attention!
