You see, for weeks I have been collecting (actually buying impulsively) this and that to make awesome, incredible halloween treats that will make sweet little kids squeal with delight! The problem is that I don't have any little kids anymore. Something happened to them, and I can't seem to find them. Ok, well surely they still want the treats, right?
So, I thought I would try a different tactic. "Jared, all the football guys eat dinner together on Thursdays, right? How about I send some cupcakes for dessert?" There came the look again..... "Uh Mom, I think they already have all that planned out..."
I have even gone to the extreme to suggest a Halloween party. And I can assure you, this is very unlike me....why would I want more teenagers in my house? But, just think of all the cute little things I could make them! Then came the look... AGAIN.... with mumblings about probably already having something planned... :( and maybe.... I'll let you know...which actually means only if they become desperate and have to do that as an absolute last resort...and then maybe not even then.
I wonder if it's too late to put an ad in the paper. WANTED: SMALL CHILDREN FOR 2 HOURS TO FEED HOMEMADE SWEET TREATS TO ON HALLOWEEN. (2 hours would be plenty--actually 1 & 1/2 hours would probably be sufficient.) And no, trick or treating isn't the same, because no one wants their children to eat homemade treats from anyone anymore....and the prepackaged stuff provides absolutely no mama thrills for me.
What is a mom to do? Now, what in the world am I going to do with all these gummy eyes?
