2 and a half years old.
During the past week leading up to Halloween this year, your brother and I kept reminding you, “Okay, Holly, if you want to get candy, you have to wear your ladybug costume…”
Therefore, you practiced wearing it every couple of days, just to get a good feel for it.
We went on to teach you the secret special phrase, “Happy Halloween!”
You grasped the concept quite easily.
Your brother even made a special deal with you right before we went trick-or treating, that he would give you his chocolate candy if you would give him your sour candy.
At each new door in our neighborhood, you proudly smiled and said those magical words…
One neighbor even gave you an extra pack of M&M’s, simply because of your cuteness factor, after he already gave you two other packs.
And no, the Mickey Mouse Band-Aid on your favorite wasn’t because of a cut. That was just you being you.
