More treats for me

Did you all have a nice Halloween (the ones that celebrates)? When I moved from Sweden a few years ago Halloween still wasn’t that big of a thing but I think it has changed the last years. In Dubai it’s a different story and in the area where we live most families went all in with house decorations and dress ups for the kids as well as themselves.

We didn’t decorate our house but I surely made sure that I would get some candy with minimal effort. I used child labor and a pumpkin outfit and told her not to come back until the bucket was full of candy. The other kids had a small little pumpkin bucket. My child had a big bucket we use for the beach which was probably three times the size of everyone else’s. Don’t want to risk running out of space.

Whilst my daughter managed to come back with a full bucket for her mum (she is not eating any sugar yet mmmmhahah) I excused myself from sharing anything. Because that’s just who I am. Hungry and sneaky.

Trick or trick

I didn’t really celebrate Halloween when I was a kid. We knew what it was but didn’t go trick or treat and we didn’t decorate. Fast forward about 100 years (that’s how old I feel) and I’m knocking my head in to freakin spider webs everywhere and falling over pumpkins all over the neighborhood. 

I realize with great horror that today is the big trick or treat night and with a baby in the house I have one thing on my to do list today: Figure out how to disconnect the door bell. If someone rings on the door just when I put her to sleep, the kids will see a real monster. Trick all the way, little kids! Bring it on. Hope you don’t mind to be chased down the street by a naked mum. Now that will teach them scary.
