So, do tell: Do you have any Halloween hacks that help you with celebrating Halloween as a working mom? (Ha, considering the context, that sounds a bit macabre, doesn’t it? Maybe “tips” is better.) Did you go all out when your kid was a baby but have scaled back now that he or she is older — or is the opposite true? Here are a few other Halloween parenting topics we can have fun discussing:

Family Friday: Oh My Gosh A-Line Dress

Ladies, what are you doing to prepare for Halloween? Do you have any seasonal decor up yet — are you stocked for Halloween night? What will your kiddos be this year for Halloween — and will you or your partner dress up? (I’m just super stoked that I found the “spooky pumpkin” shirt that J loved last year — it still fits, yay!)
