I really enjoy halloween, having all the little ones come to the door for their treats. They are all so cute in their costumes.
I like to sort of play along with the theme of their costume with the little ones. I tell all how good their costume is. If the particular little one is say a “scary monster” or such, I pretend to be a little scared.
Had one situation that was extra cute. I went to the door and there was a very beautiful little princess complete with crown and all. I would guess about 6 years old. Standing beside the princess was a “really” scary looking monster of some sort. Again I am guessing but based on the size of the monster I would think the age must have been about 4. There was a dad standing several feet back from the door.
Any way as I opened the door the “monster” gave me the biggest grrrrr, his little 4 year old voice could manage. At this how could I be anything but frightened by this ferocious monster at my door. The princess, the big sister quickly reassured me though. It was so cute what she said: “It’s OK, you don’t have to be scared, it’s not really a monster just my little brother dressed up to look that way.” Phew, was I ever releaved to hear that.
