I had been really looking forward to Halloween. Addilyns costume. Trick or treating at Chris parents and hanging out as a family, especially after Chris was gone last weekend. Both Addilyn and Chris were sick, and Addi had been up from 2-5 straight the night before and wouldn't nap during the day, so I frustratingly got in my car and started to drive. Thankfully she fell asleep quickly but I couldn't help but cry. I felt pathetic sitting in my car, crying over my expectations for Halloween not matching up.
It's hard for me to not be disappointed because things don't go as planned. Especially for a holiday I was excited about doing with Addilyn.
I texted my sister pathetically and she could sympathize with me but also reminded me that this is parenthood. And life. You can't control everything. Big or little.
I had all these hopes of great Halloween memories, and they didn't happen. But last Sunday my mom and I went to our towns Main Street trick or treating. It wasn't planned and ended up being really fun. Perfect weather and we had a great time.
(Our one round of trick or treating for pictures sake and because that lamb costume needs to get it's moneys worth!)
