Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Halloween this year had at least that many tears.

Despite her valient efforts, The Middle Girl was too sick to Trick-Or-Treat.

This was the first time that one of the kids was sick on Halloween.

Middle Pop was so angry with The Mamma for the no-fly call that she trembled.

It was also the first time one of the kids was so mad at me that she wouldn’t speak to me for a half hour.

Never mind the doctor laid down the preliminary order.

She just knew that I would not ever hold her to such a ludicrous call.

Never mind she was too weak to stand.

She was NOT too weak to sulk.

And her outrage was without pretense.

She felt every inch betrayed.

 

The Boy went to a party at a classmate’s.

A Girl’s house.

Another spooky first that makes me tremble.

He dressed up in a costume that made me too weak to stand.

After Middle Pop’s rage, it hit too close to home…

I need a cherry Lollipop stat!

 

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
