Last year, I introduced the kids to the legend of the Switch Witch. If you leave all of your Halloween candy on the doorstep, she will swoop down during the night and switch it out for a non-edible gift. (Brilliant, right?!) The kids loved the idea and their Switch Witch gifts last year.
Today, while we were out trick-or-treating, the kids were already talking about what the Switch Witch was going to bring them! Anjali wondered how much candy they’d have to collect in order for the Switch Witch to leave them a bunk bed (she wants to be able to sleep in the same room as her brother!)
And it’s certainly been a while since I’ve posted…
I had some unsavory sorts contact me through my blog, and that drove me to stay away for a while. It just felt tainted to me, but it has been always on my mind, and I’ve regretted the posts I haven’t written. While facebook has been the happy recipient of my kids’ witticisms and pics, it doesn’t seem as permanent or easily read as this blog…so I am back.
I also have another idea for a blog that came about from some pics I was posting on facebook…when it’s ready, I’ll share!
In the meantime, here’s something from Nik to hold you over…
Nik (lying down with me on the couch): I really love you mom.
Me: I love you too, Nik.
Nik: I don’t want you to die.
Me: Will you miss me when I’m dead?
Nik: Yeah. (sniffs a little, then…) There’s so much I don’t know how to do.
Me: Like what?
Nik: I don’t know how to get a job…
Me: Don’t worry, baby, I’ll help you, and your teachers in college will too, and your dad will.
Poor little guy. The weight of the world is already becoming a burden…
