Day Thirty One: What’s Next?
Well, this was a successful Halloween if you ask me. It’s almost ten o’clock and my daughter is still awake from all the excitement (no candy tonight though…seriously) and my wife and I are mellowing out in front of the TV before we get ready for bed. In case you don’t remember, my daughter and I went with the themed costume this year. In fact, I’m going to dress up with her every year until she gets sick of me. So, here’s Poppa and his little monkey.
Lily Monkey is hungry!!
I can’t believe 31 days are already over. Things just flew by this past month. Thanks so much to all of you for sharing your time with me this month. I really hope you continue to come to the blog regularly because I plan to keep on going.
So, what’s next you ask you ask?
Well, you can definitely expect to get a healthy dose of pop culture, movie, music, and books on the blog. I’ll also throw in some other content (contests perhaps?) and guest posts from time to time. Plus, personal stuff and recipes and writing will also make appearances…stick around why don’t you?
No matter what happens next, Halloween Hijinks may be over for this year, but the regular hijinks continues!
Day Fourteen: My favorite new reference for all things Halloween and kids
When my wife and I became parents, somehow we got a subscription for Parenting magazine. I’m not sure who signed us up. Does it just come with the territory as part of a welcoming kit? Actually, I may have signed us up because I also get weekly (and sometimes daily) newsletters from Parenting.com. Sadly, most of these go in my e-mail trash section. That all stopped though when I became a stay-at-home dad. Now I’m scouring everything they send me to help my goal of giving Lily a fun, educational, and inspirational day.
With it being October, the e-mails have shifted to Halloween tips. Instead of hogging all of these tips to myself, I thought I should share two of my favorite idea posts Parenting has sent me recently.
Easy Halloween Crafts, Favors, and Games (Parenting.com)
35+ Easy Homemade Halloween Costumes for Kids (Parenting.com)
In fact, Parenting.com has an entire Halloween Central that all moms and dads should check out for tons of great Halloween ideas.
