If you can't read it, it says "Dear [Mr. Man], You can take the costume to school." I think it was supposed to be written by us and for the teacher? Or for us and hopefully we would have forgotten that we didn't write it? Either way, Halloween has made my child a liar.
I got tired of saying "It's not Halloween yet," so I decided to do a quick drawing on the chalkboard in the kitchen.
It kind of clicked. But he still kept asking about it. I don't think it really clicked until I said "After you go to bed 29 times and wake up 29 times, it'll be Halloween." That prompted quite the meltdown. He was crying and said "But it's been almost a year!" Which is freaking amazing considering his speech last Halloween, but still funny. I think I know what his favorite holiday is.
