Happy Halloween

October 31, 2008

This has been a year full of firsts- first baby, first year in my thirties, and my first Halloween since moving away from home where I might get trick-or-treaters.  So I did the whole thing- carved a pumpkin, got the bowl full of candy ready, saved the pumpkin seeds to turn into a fun snack, and got a costume for the baby who has no idea what is happening.  And suddenly tonight as I put out the pumpkin I felt very suburban.  Am I rapidly becoming the  crafts projects and healthy snacks mom?  Not that those things are in and of themselves bad things, not at all, but sometimes I wonder how I got here.  Sometimes it feels like I stumbled into bed one night after having one too many long island ice teas and woke up as a 30-year-old new mom.  Talk about spooky…
