Update: Kids and (not so much) craziness

You know how you're trying to go to sleep and you start to remember all kinds of things you haven't gotten done? Last night I thought "Hmmm...I was all concerned about how Mom's Day Out was gonna go last time I filled in there. Did I ever let everyone know how it went?"

Sure enough, I didn't. I had my new blog to announce, the elections to document, autumn to contemplate and a phone quiz to complete. Since this week was PSBN, Veteran's Day and International Babywearing Week, it's no wonder the update slipped my mind.

So here's the thing: Watching kids on the morning of Halloween was not the nightmare I was anticipating. Apparently, the candy feeding frenzy had not yet begun. I think there was only one costume-wearer and no plastic weapons of any kind. The kids were a bit hyper, but not nearly as much as I expected.

One of the regular MDO workers said that the day after Halloween is much worse - that's when a bunch of little ones who were up past their bedtimes crash from their sugar highs and get reeeally cranky. Glad we missed that this year!

  1. Yes, the day after is worse. Teachers (of any age kids!) are grateful when Halloween lands on the weekend.


What do you have to say about that?
