You think you're past the hard part of parenting when you're done with breastfeeding and the terrible twos and such... And then you find yourself up late the day before Halloween hemming a princess gown and constructing an entire cardboard Minecraft monster from scratch 😫

@bethskw I love you, kid.

Image desc: actually I have no idea what this is. A pixelated cyclops dude thing. Made of cardboard and lovingly hand painted.

@KitRedgrave My mom sewed our costumes, but she always had the sense to get them done early.

@bethskw i dont think i ever had that tbh. your kids better appreciate all the work you've put in, because you really don't have to do that at all.
