I made jack-o-lantern biccies and chocolate spiders and marshmallow eyeballs. The kids are dressed up in costumes of their choice. Snuggled on the floor in the loungeroom. Watching telly by candlelight. A monster even delivered some funky green milk while Zack was at school!(incase you're wondering....adding all natural green food colouring to milk results in some interesting tasting milk....kids didn't seem to notice though!) I love that I have the ability to do this for my kids. Create memories. Start traditions.
And I can't very well write this post without crediting a pretty cool woman....Kelle Hampton of Enjoying the Small Things is the queen of traditions and memory creating and doing fun stuff with her kids. And while I have been doing so without really realising since my first little person came into the world, Kelle has made me aware. Made me think about what we do as a family. Made me realise it is me. I am resposible for making sure my kids can laugh and remember their childhood with fondness and fun. And hopefully instill in them the passion to create memories for their own families when that day comes.
Far out, being a mum rocks.
