A few weeks ago my new friend Beth asked if Addi and I would like to help support the Center for Prevention of Abuse by marching in the Morton Pumpkin Festival Parade with them and throwing out candy. I knew Addi had absolutely loved hanging with Quacky the Duck at the Duck Race so I told her we'd love to.
Then I asked Addi if she wanted to help, she asked if she could hold Quacky's hand and eat all the candy. Probably not.
When Saturday finally rolled around, Addi started to get nervous. I don't think she really knew what to expect so she said her tummy hurt and she didn't want to get Quacky sick. Since Quacky's head was riding in the back of the car, I decided that was the time to explain to her that characters aren't real, just a costume with people inside.
After inspecting said Head from the inside out, she was ready to march. Apparently her tummy ache disappeared as fast as the Laffy Taffy she found under Quacky's head.
