October 27, 2011 - Kristy MacKaben
Scott sometimes calls me "Entitle-mom" because I'm one of those moms who feel their kids are entitled to participate in any and all activities, regardless of the circumstances. I admit that I never want Julie or Johnny to miss out on stuff, even when they're sick. It was the hardest thing ever to stay home all day today even though there were tons of fun Halloween activities for Johnny. I had even baked pumpkin-shaped cookies for the MOMS Club Halloween party. But, poor Johnny was up coughing all night and when he woke up his face was literally covered in snot. So, it was a low-key, boring day at home for us. I know it was more important for Johnny to rest and not share his germs with other kids, but I just hate missing fun festive things. I love this time of year, and I love love love dressing up for Halloween, so it took a lot of willpower to stay home. I wouldn't budge, however, on letting the kids trick-or-treat tonight--Julie as a bride and Johnny as a groom. (They recycled their flower girl and ring bearer outfits they wore for their Uncle Todd's wedding this summer.) Snotty nose or not, they were trick-or-treating, which turned out to not be such a great idea in the rainy, cold weather. Johnny ended up sitting in his stroller all night bundled in a blanket and Julie (who refused to wear socks with her fancy white bride shoes), came home with frozen feet. So, I admit that maybe I was a bit of an "entitle-mom" tonight, but I just get so caught up in the moment and I want Julie and Johnny to enjoy every bit of their childhoods.
