Did my kids’ Switch Witch “switch-a-zam” my October in to a SWITCHtober?! Did October get switched to December?! I woke up today to a 23 degree morning – complete with frosty snowflakes plastered all over my car. It’s pretty and all, but I am SO not ready yet for mornings in the 20s.
My family and I went to our favorite local farm stand yesterday, Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro, MA, to pick out our Halloween pumpkins. As we pulled in to the grassy parking area, it started SNOWING. Snowing?! We selected our Halloween pumpkins amidst snowflakes. What’s that you say? Yup. SWITCHtober.
Now here’s my biggest Halloween related concern about the weather of a SWITCHtober – other than just wanting to whine and cry about it! – How do we keep our kiddos from not freezing while they trick-or-treat when it’s 23 degrees?! It can be tricky layering a five year old girl with long underwear under a princess costume you know! I found this cute blog (click here) from last Halloween, written by a mom in Alaska. Now, I’m guessing an Alaska living Mama is quite experienced dealing with this cold trick-or-treating issue!
Stay warm everyone! And… HAPPY SWITCHTOBER!
