I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Bean's First Spookfest

It's not going to be too scary, for obvious reasons (most obvious being she's only 7 months old---somehow goblins and ghouls seem a little overwhelming), but it should be amusing. A friend of ours kindly offered to make her costume, and so Bean is going to be a bean. Well, a beanpod, but isn't it just too symmetrical for words? She in fact has a number of social engagements to attend en costume, so I think that the lack of trick or treating shouldn't distress her all that much. Maybe it will distress me, but my postpartum weight loss trajectory cheers. We probably will take her to one or two of our neighbors and a) show her off and b) score some treats, or at the least, a glass of wine. Wouldn't that be a lovely addition to Hallowe'en, a beer or glass of wine for the parents trudging along? Actually, I really am looking forward to the years in the future when we truly will suit up at 6 pm and go haunt the neighborhood(s).

Since I teach school, I am of course required to come up with some sort of costume...this year I kind of copped out, but I think I'm going to spend at least one day in utter comfort. Many girls at school like to dress up as "little girls"---fuzzy slippers, flannel pjs, hair in pigtails, etc. Of course, many others also like to dress up en hoochie mama, but I thought I'd follow the example of the former. At least this year. I ordered two sets of comfy pajamas from a fantastic site, and will attempt to wrestle my Mommy coif into pigtails. I honestly can't think of anything more delicious than wearing my pajamas all day.

Vive la Schlump.
