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
