When I have kids (re:Halloween)

Well, this Halloween was definitely better than that other Halloween. I did however make a mental note of how I expect my Halloweens with children to go. 
When I have kids:
  • They will dress up if they are going to go trick-or-treating
  • When they are teens, they will STILL dress up if they go trick-or-treating
  • They will say “Trick or Treat?” and not just hold a bag out waiting for candy
  • They will say “thank you” upon receipt of candy
  • They will not leave football practice in uniform and obtain candy in their gym bag, passing off their uniform as a costume
  • I will not walk around with my child asking for my own portion of candy
  • They will use a pillowcase, tote bag, or Halloween bag or bucket to collect candy. Not a plastic bag or their book bag or no bag at all.
  • They will not trick-or-treat while having their cell phone up to their ears.  

P.S. – a little girl, after saying trick or treat AND thank you, said “You are soooo beautiful” to me. :-D

  1. Also, they will not dress up as hookers or wear bells instead of skirts. Even when it's not Halloween!

  3. For sure. I know people who won't give out candy if the kid is not dressed up. I will forgive the plastic bags, but no costume, no candy. There was this woman going around claiming her child was at home sick. LMAO. Yea, no candy.

    1. I had a couple women saying they were getting candy for their kids who wouldn't get out of the car. If they won't get out of the car, they get no candy! lol

    1. As a parent, I feel like we earn the right to steal our kids candy lol, especially if it's chocolate!

  5. I guess we trick or treat the right way. I agree with everything on your list!
