My kids want to go out

We hang out and pass candy out because I have to see some cute kids besides my own. Then, my kids want to go out. We take our kids around the neighborhood a little bit, then we go to my mom’s and trick-or-treat in her neighborhood.

This is just the beginning

It’s hard for me to pick out the worst piece of parenting advice. It’s kind of not fair to do that. I’ve let go so much of the stuff from my childhood that was kind of weird and difficult to get through. There was a moment when I was a teenage girl, and I had just gotten my heart broken. I was sobbing and I had my head on my mom’s lap. She was trying to comfort me and said, “You don’t understand, this is just the beginning.” That was not something I needed to hear at that time!

Some sort of a ninja

My oldest is six. He’s going to be some sort of a ninja. I always wanted to be a mother of ninjas, so it works out perfectly. My youngest, who just turned three, will be forced to wear one of his brother’s old costumes, because we just have it.

It teaches what we strive for

I think “Little House on the Prairie” still has meaning for kids because it teaches children the most important things we all strive for — community, family, love and home. And the other thing is that it shows them an authentic, specific time in American history and how kids lived then — walking to school, not having electricity and the way things were in the 1870s. And on that same token, a lot of the problems kids and people go through today are the same problems that existed in the 1800s. Things like bullying, drug addiction, and the stories are told in a really fun way.

Back then? So scary

I think the two scariest ones that stand out to me — the first was “The Exorcist” where the girl’s head spins around. Little did I know that one day my children would be doing the same thing. And then the Freddy Krueger movies. Which now watch it and think how stupid it is, but back then? So scary. Now as an adult, I don’t watch scary movies. I’m a wimp, I can’t handle it.
