Worst mom ever

If you are wondering where the blog post filled with photos of cute kids trick or treating in costumes is, it’s not here.

And it won’t ever be here this year.

We were at Great Wolf Lodge waterpark for Halloween. They had a short haunted hayride & a little ToT seek & find set up to entertain the kids between 6-8pm.

Both kids packed bits & pieces of their costumes.

They ended up with maybe a dozen pieces of candy (which is fine)

I was in a crabby mood because we didn’t get into our hotel room until almost 6pm due to housekeeping being so far behind & then the Bar & Grille place was only doing buffet (for $20!) and we couldn’t just get sandwiches like the last time & I didn’t want a greasy pizza, which was our only other option.

And we had to rush everything because we were so late getting our room & I HATE being rushed.

So instead of snapping photos I snapped at people.

Until someone gave me a margarita, but the kids were in bed at that point.

Havoc was Commander Cody & Mayhem was Batman.

I did end up getting a single buffet order to go. I filled the soup container with almost two dozen chilled shrimp, then loaded two styrofoam boxes with ribs, pork roast & fixin’s, thai chicken & rice and a small sampling of desserts. DH and I had it for dinner and for lunch.

Which is really the only way a buffet is worth the money in my book.

Happy Hallowe'en....?! My kids didn't get to dress up at all, if that makes you feel any better :-)

I was in a pretty shitty mood Sunday as well, albeit for different reasons. Kids will only remember the candy in the end. Try not to beat yourself up about it.

Ugg. Being rushed is the worst. I hate that more than anything. I'm sorry you were not able to get pictures. I hope the trip was fun over all though!

Aw, that's too bad. Hope the kids had fun at least. lol

Write a complaint letter to Great Wolf, they are supposed to be pretty responsive to unhappy guests.

Ugh, I'm sorry. Next time start drinking at noon (kidding. kind of). But hey, good job with the to go box- I would have done the same thing.

Was it $20 per person or $20 for the whole family? You didn't specify...

Sorry that your family weekend didn't happen the way you wanted. I'm starting to think that my mom needs to open up a restaurant in her kitchen for all my friends who travel to Niagara Falls. That's the one thing I hated about living there...restaurants were way too expensive.

Fortunately the kids will only remember the fun and candy :)

I disagree with your title. You are not the worst mom ever!
6pm check-in is so unacceptable!
I had a margarita on Halloween night too.
