Brennen is rocking his Ninja Turtle costume, our teal pumpkin is sitting on our doorstep, and we have our non-food treats ready for tonight! I always love seeing the little ones from the neighbourhood dressed up in their costumes. I never know how many trick-or-treaters to expect, and I am second guessing myself right now thinking I don't have enough stuff, but I'm sure we will be fine!
Andrew and Brennen and I had a great time yesterday at the Halloween party at Easter Seals. There was such a crowd of families, and many new little ones we hadn't met before. So many awesome costumes and even more awesome kiddos. You guys are amazing.
Though this is a fun time of year for most, holidays like Halloween can be challenging for families who have children with special needs.
I want to share with you a wonderful resource created by CanChild. If things such as loud noises, bright lights, crowds, stairs, cold weather, allergies, or food sensitivities are an issue for your child, here is a list of things you can do as a family to make Halloween extra fun! See HERE.
We learned long ago that things don't always go as planned, so I promise you will be doing yourself a favour if you don't put too much pressure on yourself, or on your child this Halloween. Remember to have fun! Things don't have to be perfect to be amazing.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
