I know this may surprise a few of you, but sometimes people let me babysit their children. Yes, it’s as big of a shock to me as it is to you. I typically start by giving them ice cream and Red Bull, then taking them on a few roller coasters, topping it off with a trip to the local McDonald’s. That, or I roll with my backup plan: stock the house with crafting supplies, kid movies, and holiday themed food. I went with the latter.
I bought a few mini pumpkins, spray painted them white, and gave the kiddos free range with paint. (Not to worry, I thought ahead and covered the table with a cheap tablecloth). See, told you I could handle this.
While they painted away and we watched Double, Double, Toil, and Trouble (okay, I watched – kids these days will never appreciate some serious MK&A movies like we did), I used Modge Podge to write BOO on my pumpkin, sprinkled with glitter, and made a friendly little pumpkin for my front porch. And by ‘front porch’ I clearly mean the two steps that lead to our front door. Ohhhh the day when I have a nice front porch will come soon enough. Until then I will be grateful I don’t have to sweep the front porch like those crazy cat ladies (who would ever want to be one of those?) <—- Life Goals.
