my costume.

I opened the door. To find a pirate. A princess. Dorothy Gale. And a witch. On the porch.
Each took turns grabbing candy from the pink pumpkin.
The witch proclaimed that I had her favorite candy. And thanked me profusely.
The pirate took more than one candy. The princess insisted that he give it back.

And Dorothy Gale. Asked me if I was a mommy.
Me. With my t-shirt, shorts and flip flops.
Hair in a pony tail. Bags that are packed for a two week vacation under my eyes.

Was Dorothy wondering this because she thought I had on a costume?
Or because she just wanted to know.

I simply said Yes. I am.
And realized that it fit. I am. A mommy.

Happy Halloween.
