brat kid decided to go beg for candy last night afterall.
I didn't even have to beg as I had planned all day, he had his mind made up when he got home from school.
"Was thinking mom, I think I should go trick-or-treating, free candy is better than paying."
I think it was all the hype at school with kids talking about the boatload of sweets they were going to collect that made him suddenly change his mind.
Although, if you ask him, he just decided himself.
So I was his candy pimp, sending him to as many houses as I could in as short a period of time because it was only 45 degrees last night and momma was cold.
I had the camera in tow.
brat kid, wouldn't let me take any pictures.
I snuck this one in when he wasn't paying attention and wasn't explaining to me why he didn't want any photos.
"You see mom, sometimes a kid...."
"If you keep taking pictures then the fun is..."
We didn't hit nearly as many houses as we did last year.
He wasn't in the marathon mode that he once was.
So we didn't beat last year's record of 11 lbs, but we still had plenty.
And he actually let me take this picture of him because grandma was getting a picture at her super-duper decked out house.
He would never say no to the lady who handed him a bag of candy and $10.
And it is Science Fair season once again in the Chicagoland area.
So we've been experimenting and researching and working on our project.
I have never been a fan of Science and definitely not a fan of anything that comes home from school with the word PROJECT typed on the top.
But I have been trying to make the best of it and make it seem like Science is the funnest thing ever!
WOO HOO SCIENCE!!!
Just don't tell the kid I almost failed all my Science classes in high school and the highest grade I ever got was a 'D'.
Shhhhh...he thinks I know what I am doing, although I hooked up this battery wrong 3 times and blamed it on the colors of the wires.
