Now, I thought that is wear this would end. Lennon, of course, is too young for candy or trick or treatin’ in any real way so why would there ever be a need for a matching Mommy and Me costume? Well, I’ll tell you the truth of what happened. I had all the intentions of dressing up my little lion on Halloween, taking a few photos for the baby book and parading her around the grocery store like a sane mother. Instead, I fell down the FOMO rabbit hole of Instagram double tapping all of my baby-free friends posting their cute, scantily clad, and highly creative Halloween costumes Saturday morning and realized that this would be the first year in my whole life that I did not dress up for Halloween. For perspective, I even dressed up pregnant… and went to dinner. Seriously, no party. Just my sister, Chantelle Paige and I in full costume, eating some tacos. That, my friends, is how I ended up google searching “kids Halloween events Sonoma County”, dressed up as Dorothy, toting around the cutest baby lion I’d ever seen and borrowing/kidnapping my parents Yorkie because he really made the best Toto.
