Aidan: Mom, what are you going to be for Halloween?
Me: I hadn't really thought about it. What do you think I should be?
Aidan: Hmm, how about a nice, pretty mama!
Silence; I adjust the rearview mirror to look at him.
Me: Um, honey, Halloween is for costumes.
Me: So you don't usually think I'm a nice, pretty mom?
Aidan: Oh. Right. Well, how about a witch then?
And I swear, that kid with impeccable timing smirked at me.
