Poor Ella. She is very scared of Halloween this year. I'm not sure what happened. She has not been afraid in years past....in fact there isn't a whole lot that she is afraid of period. She hates all things Halloween this year.
She does not like Jack o Lanterns.
She does not like cartoons about Halloween
She does not like our neighbors house that has a few decorations out (they only have some pumpkins over their lights and a little ghost) every time we pass she covers her eyes and says it's a haunted house. LOL
She HATES her brother's costume.
She hates to talk about costumes at all.
When I put her to bed at night she is now afraid of the dark and I have to leave the hall lights on.
She sometimes cries in bed and says there are monsters in her closet.
I don't know if Ella is just more aware of things, like fear, this year or what. We have had a lot of conversations about pretend this year. Like monsters are pretend etc. I'm not quite sure that she is grasping that concept or not. She does try to comfort herself though..she will say "Mommy theres scary monster in my closet. It's pretend right?" Poor baby.
I am really really really hoping that she has fun tomorrow at her school party. I hope that there aren't any scary costumes (it is a Kindergarten class after all.) I also hope that she enjoys trick or treating tomorrow night....maybe just maybe the candy will be enough to make her want to go : )
I have to admit I'm a little scared to walk around with Hunter this year too..he is creepy!
Happy 8th Birthday Colin!
