Rubber Ducky, You’re the One!

We were able to trick-or-treat, which is really the only reason to get out of bed on Halloween, isn’t it? It was touch and go with her exhaustion, malaise and (shocker) crabbiness, but with a diagnosis that fell somewhere between mundane and OMG (and an appointment for more catheters and needles and X-ray machines later this month), we thought she deserved the chance to dress up and get sugar.

And she loved every minute of it, especially the suckers. And I limited myself to just two Reese’s peanut butter cups. Let’s not talk about the eight-pack of Butterfingers that my husband bought me. You don’t need to know about that. And if I don’t tell you, it’s not real, right?

She was a champion trick-or-treater, even if I did have to carry her most of the way. She even said “Thank you” like a big girl, which is more than I can say for most of the ungrateful jackasses that came to our door tonight (especially the group that came AFTER I had turned out the porch light an the scary Halloween lights and put the toddler to sleep, I hope their teeth rot out from the twizzlers).

Another Halloween complaint, and then I’m done for the night – why turn on your porch light if you’re not going to hand out candy? Isn’t that the universal bat signal for trick-or-treaters? At least I thought so…

    You make bath time so much fun! ha! I will be singing that in the middle of the night now…
    Glad you guys had a good time, I agree some sugar was in order!
    My night wasnt as great as I had hoped, Nathan needed to eat right in the middle of the action so Mike had to man the door:( OH well…. My new mission is to get rid of the 5 lbs of leftover candy!

    Glad she felt up to trick-or-treating. Hopefully it lifted her spirits! She was adorable in that picture.

    Absolutely precious picture!! So we had on our porch light.. no trick or treaters. We even went outside and sat on the swing with a huge bowl of candy. Not a single trick-or-treater. We even had some walk by (on the other side of the street). We finally just gave up.

    She looks so adorable. I am glad she enjoyed trick or treating.

    Absolutely a bat signal.

    Why are some people so clueless? (I thought of a LOT of other words to use, but I think clueless is the safest.)

    Oh, your daughter is adorable.

    Stop quacking me up with the Butterfinger talk. I had to skip lunch today because of all the treats I ate yesterday (And this morning. Yeah.)

    She looks so cute in that outfit! I’m glad she felt well enough to go out on Halloween, and I hope that things only improve from here on out.

    This year’s Halloween experience just went on to prove my belief that at least 90% of the human population stinks. Doesn’t sound like your Halloween experience would have done much to change my opinion either…

    P.S. Loved the trick-or-treaters running around with two bags too – you know, one for them and one for “so & so at home” or “the baby”. Whatever people!

  9. She is gorgeous. I love the costume. And how delightful that you gave her the opportunity to just be a kid. I hope she is well soon!
