My favorite time.....

What my daily life feels like some days 
of year is beginning right now. October and November and I can totally due without December.  I have never been a huge Xmas fan but that could have to do that I am still suffering major trauma from being in retail merchandising and I am still being deprogrammed. It takes a bit to get over the retail flashbacks...I still shudder anytime I pass a friggin Xmas tree with lights in a store before Halloween and let's not get started on what I would love to do to inflatable Rudolf. I started decorating the place last week for Halloween. We do not do the smiling and happy for Halloween we do creepy and gross that is what Halloween is about.  Need to still pick up some pumpkins but little GG and I were totally into it. I got to give it to my little one not scared of anything. As I hung the cocoon man on the tree she did not even flinch and she has a big smile on her face.  Thatta girl. I raise my daughter to be a little person I speak to her the same way I would speak to an adult none of the goo gooo gaaa hootchy kootchy  bullshit ova" here. I explained to her that these type of things are not real and she got it based on the fact that she was was wandering around the house with decorative body parts.......And telling my husband that the skeletons I hung from the tree were her friends and that she would visit them everyday...Ahhhh the things that little ones say......
Ummm mom looks like I got an extra foot here
Le door knocker
I did promise my husband this year that I would not watch any of the many awesome scary movies I usually watch this time of year in the presence of my little one. Now before anyone freaks out I do not watch slasher movies with my daughter present but I have had the movie Halloween in the background many times during this time of year I love love that movie and I love the music*HELLO they show the shit on TV so all the good parts are cut out plus that moves is not that scary*. Listen I watched back to back horror when I was preggos and my little doll is just fine.....Heh I watch the Mickey Mouse Club and to me that is the real horror.
Of course we had to glitter a pumpkin.....
This is just one of the cacoon men hanging out 
Now I have more to go it will be complete when I have the pumpkins in the area. Once again we are city dwellers so we do not have a bunch of room to do what I really want to do. Next year once we are outta here here then I will go all out. I feel bad for the fur monkeys right now because they are the ones who get glittered and are used as fit models for the many costume changes GG goes through the day. As you can see here Fur Monkey 2 is all about her accessories.


I feel so pretttty....sooo very pretty!

Happy Friday Gang!!!!!!!

Hi!! Happy Halloween to you guys :)
You sound like you have been very busy decorating, that is so cool your daughter gets right into it just as much as you! I have to say that I am a huge scaredy cat of horror movies!!
I too always speak to my kids like adults, they learn when you communicate with them :)
