Update on Halloween
Tue, 11-04-2008 - 12:05pm
I reported earlier that my DS decided he didn't want to go out on Halloween. Well, he ended up having a bad cold on Wed. and was out of school on Thurs & Fri anyway, so it's probably better that he didn't want to go cause he definitely wouldn't have been up to it. But it was funny--there were a couple of groups of kids who came by (boys & girls) who were asking for him and where was he, so I said he was sick and they were like "tell him we came by." He was kind of embarrassed to come to the door. So I don't know if he just thought that he didn't have anyone to go with or what, cause it seems like the other kids in his class were definitely not to old to dress up. So maybe next year. It's not that I care about Halloween per se, it was more that he likes to do a lot of activities alone (like reading) and I would like him to do some things w/ other kids, esp. since it seems like they wanted to be w/ him. He was happy about that and called them his "fans."
