This evening Munchkie and I spent some time together creating a Halloween costume for her to wear this weekend. As I looked online, cut, glued, and measured, I was reminded of how much my mother did for me growing up. She made so many costumes, and not always just for Halloween, she encouraged our creativity and exploration. Because of her encouragement and creativity I am now trying to do the same for my own daughter.
My mom is coming in just a few short hours and I am always so grateful for her when she comes. She can hold it all together, helping us clean, cook and care for Munchkie. We know that she is there to support us and help us. She's always up for any activity we plan and watches Munchkie for us so we can plan an activity for just Munchkie's Daddy and I.
I hope that I can pass on to Munchkie what my mother has passed on to me. I hope that she someday is creative and makes costumes for her own kids. I also hope that Munchkie doesn't look ridiculous begging for candy next to all of the expensive store bought costumes that the other kids will be wearing.
