Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Happy Halloween everyone! It’s been an incredibly long, exhausting, yet truly fun day today.
I volunteered in the kindergarten room that I often help out in, since there was a kindergarten Halloween parade today, and I figured the teacher would need help since there were parties happening today. It was so much fun, and since my little sisters are in the classrooms next to and across from the room I work in, they got a thrill out of seeing me at their school. It was a lot of fun, but I also realized how much work goes into having a party day in kindergarten. There is a lot of stress and chaos.
After school, I came home to a house full of kids who couldn’t wait to go trick-or-treating. Friends of the family came over to go around our neighborhood with us, and everyone had a great time. Of course, the only sad part is that my little sisters can’t have half of the candy that they receive because of their allergies, but my brother and sister are nice enough to trade candy with them so that they’ll be able to have all of the dairy-free candy that was handed out.
And the best part of the night? We all sat down to watch Hocus Pocus together, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. It was great for everyone to veg out on the couch and watch the movie together.
I hope everyone else had a fantastic Halloween as well! Tell me what you or your children dressed up as in the comments! (By the way, I was a rag doll this year!)
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
