Gigi: Mom, can you please make sure that Charlie goes on a different path on Halloween?
Cassie: A different path? You don’t like his costume?
Gigi: Nope. I hate it. I’m gonna be terrified for all the days until Halloween night.
Cassie: I told him to put his new costume away and I made him promise me that he wouldn’t put it on again until Halloween.
Gigi: Where did he put it?
Cassie: I dunno. Somewhere in his room probably.
Gigi: Can you have him put it in the garage?
Gigi: In the attic?
Cassie: I’ll ask him if he’s okay with that. Sure.
Gigi: I’m never going into the attic for the rest of my whole life.
Cassie: I get the message, Genevieve. We’ll keep Charlie’s scary costume out of your way until Halloween. Don’t worry about it.
Gigi: I’m very worried. He’s probably going to take it out to scare me when you’re at work.
Cassie: I’ll explain the situation to the babysitter and he knows that there will be severe consequences if he scares you with it…even once.
Gigi: Like you’ll have to throw it out in the trash?
Cassie: (giggling) Maybe.
Gigi: And on Halloween, he has to go down a different path…or I’m going to do the trick or treating with another family. Okay? Don’t forget to tell him HE HAS TO GO ON A DIFFERENT PATH.
Cassie: I won’t forget.
Gigi: I don’t like Halloween as much as Charlie.
Cassie: I know. Hang in there. Soon it will be your birthday and then Christmas. At least Charlie’s not going to be Wolf Man again this year.
Gigi: The skeleton is worser than Wolf Man, Mom. It’s much worser.
