I'm feeling a little scroogie today. Every year I've made a fuss of Halloween with the girls. Last year was the first time we went out trick or treating, but that was on a pre-arranged route with kinder friends. I have always dressed up, made crazy dinners and that kind of thing, but this year I feel tapped out of enthusiasm.
I conceded to buying some lollies if others come a-knocking, but seriously, we don't need more sugar in our lives. I was complaining to Geoff about disappointing the girls, it's basketball practice, I have to make dinner blah blah blah I don't want to be a misery to which he responded, just be a parent and say no.
We're lucky, our girls are super reasonable and have never been prone to tantrums, but still I find it hard to say no and disappoint them, I feel ill at ease with just saying no without a really good reason. The reality is I just don't feel like it and for some reason that makes me feel like a mean mum. Stay tuned, tomorrow I could well be complaining because I took them and was peeved every moment!
