I decided to throw this fun pre-Halloween party for my kids (and adults), because for the first time ever my kids decided they wanted to go trick or treating with their friends instead of Mom and Dad.
I thought bringing the whole family together, along with some neighborhood friends would somehow change their minds. But, they still decided to ditch Mom and Dad for their own peer group. How did this happen so quickly? It was a tough realization that they are indeed growing up, and getting older.
A day before the party my daughter and I started planning. She came up with a clever idea, she wanted to make a Witches Potion for finding your youth.
We then spent an afternoon shopping for the ingredients, preparing the food/drinks, arranging the decorations, sifting through to find the right music, and laughing at our silly creations. I discovered something, my fountain of youth arose while enjoying the planning process with my daughter, coming up with crazy silly ideas was energizing and a breath of fresh air. The secret to my fountain of youth……well guess? It’s doing things and activities with my kids, engaging and connecting with them while doing the things THEY love.
Happy Halloween Everyone.
