Despite so many obstacles, things turned out alright.
Halloween was a hard holiday for me to pull off on my own. I felt bad about not having their father’s pumpkin carving skills and not being able to take them to as many festivities as I wanted to due to being a single parent, pregnant, and insanely busy with graduate school. I don’t think they felt slighted though. They both loved their costumes and had a wonderful time celebrating. I suppose it’s not always about how much you get to do, it’s how much you get to enjoy what you’re doing, and we had a good time doing everything.
Now…on to conquer Thanksgiving!
