Spooky Stuff

I have to tell you a funny story.

My grandson who is two is a bit leery of all the Halloween decorations this year. NOOOO he says when we show him the hanging ghost and goblins..He doesn't like the costumes or the spooky sounds
He clings to us and is a little afraid..We reassure him nothing is going to hurt him but at his age...well you can imagine the following scene

My daughter took him to the dollar tree for Halloween decorations yesterday. She showed him the spider webs and hanging things. She is talking to him about all the fun he will have getting candy, when all at once he breaks loose from her and starts screaming Noooooo. She looks up just in time to see three Arabian women fully decked out from head to toe in black with there veils on and the only thing showing is there eyes.
My grandson is in front of them Yelling Nooooo not that, not that(meaning he doesn't like the scary stuff) and freaking out..How can you explain to a two year old at Halloween that these women are not spooky monsters but only dressed in what is normal for there culture..

What can a mom do...except come home and tell grandma who thinks it is hysterical..
Don't you just love this time of year

That is so funny. But at the same time not for mom I bet. My 4 year old grandson hates Halloween always has. Last year while we were all dressed up and giving out candy he had to leave the house. My lovely niece and her husband were nice enough to take him out for a bit so the rest of us could enjoy the night. He was really disturbed by the fake blood on his sissy and grandfather. Love Hugs and Blessings

Wow, I can't remember EVER finding Halloween scary. Poor little boy, that's a shame he's having a hard time with it and yes, from another culture's perspective it would be very confusing wouldn't it?

Oh, poor little guy. But that WAS funny. I can just picture it.

I remember Kristen's first Halloween when she was not quite 4 months old. I was holding her when I opened the door to masked trick or treaters. She gasped and buried her little head on my shoulder. After that she stayed with Dad while I answered the door!
