My son really really wants to "cut out a pumpkin and put fire in it."
*sigh* I guess there's no way out of this one...
I don't know why I hate carving pumpkins so much.
I think it's just one of those things for me that seems fun and ends up being a pain in the neck. In my opinion, carving a jack o' lantern is fun until after you make your first cut and then it's all downhill from there.
It takes a good hour to get it carved out right. It's messy, smelly, lonely, and frustrating if you're even the slightest bit perfectionist. And it's not like the kids can really do a whole lot after they make the initial drawing.
I'm sure I'll be giving in to pumpkin carving soon. I know my boy's heart is set on it. What else can a mama do?
Carving pumpkins — love it or hate it? How do you make it fun?
