There’s no better place to look for costume inspiration than the books you find yourself reading to your kids time and time again. They’ll be excited to dress as their favorite character, and you’ll be excited to find a lot of the items you need already in the closet. This is my favorite costume round-up yet!
Before Beck was born my sister told me, “Holidays are better with kids.” At the time, all I could picture was having to tend to a child before getting to eat Thanksgiving dinner and couldn’t imagine that was true. But as Beck grows and gets excited about traditions we establish, I couldn’t agree more. Especially when it comes to Halloween.
Last weekend, we participated in the popular tradition of visiting a pumpkin patch, and Beck’s enthusiasm and pumpkin perching made the event much more fun than dragging my husband to the patch a few years earlier. I love seeing the wonderment in Beck’s eyes and actions. Here you can see it through these photos I put together from the day.
Beck has reached the age where the iPad will capture his attention long enough to allow me to shower in peace. So, I’m taking it. We’ve tried several apps, some have flopped and others we return to again and again. I appreciate when other moms share their app suggestions with me since I’m new to the toddler scene so today I’m sharing a new app that has become an instant favorite.
