Halloween 2010 is officially behind us and the only reminders are bags of candy, sugared up kids and decorations that need to be put away. I usually would have done that today (because, after all, Christmas decorations come out in two weeks. Don't judge. You decorate when you want to and I will decorate when I want to. *grin*) but instead, the kids took the day off from school and we all just hung out together.
For a sensory child who lives in overload right now, last night was a lot. Trunk or Treat Friday night was a lot (and both nights had many tearful moments). But the deciding factor was there was a morning sub in her class today and that means chaos for me and even more overload and craziness for Kaylen. I just couldn't do it to her. So instead of swapping stories with teachers and my other school friends about costumes we saw last night (including a neighbor boy dressed to the nines as a sheriff. Chaps and riding boots really topped it off.), the kids and I snuggled in my bed and watched The Disney Channel and enjoyed some much needed down time.
A totally great way to start a new month!
