    Default I hear you 100%!

    Like you, we are in So Cal, and it will more than likely be a warm night. The bulky, warm fuzzy costumes are not really appropriate for this kind of weather, let alone not comfortable for the little ones who are all bulky and also strapped into their stroller.s

    I have been all over many costume websites and into different Halloween stores this past week looking for a cute costume for my 17 mos old ds, and like you, I DON"T LIKE ANY OF THEM! Thye are either too bulky, scary, have masks or hats that he will take off or just aren't what i would want my kids in.

    So, he will probably wear some cute Halloween Jammies and hang out in hsi stroller while my odler dd's do the trick or treating.


    BTW, you aren't a grinch. Halloween has been my least fav holiday. Althoug hwe live in a great and very festive nieghborhood (we have been BOO'd 3 times already!) I still feel weird about letting my kids TOT at a house I do not know the people at.

    If I were you, I'd take some cute pics at your work party and leave it it that. Stay home on halloween night and hand out candy or rent some cute family Halloween dvd's.

    Default They are waaay too young for the office thing and (Photo)

    night trick or treating. My twins were 21 months last Halloween. We were renting a temp apt in NC. We had to take older DS around and put the twins in their cars in their costumes and, they may have gone to a door or 2.

    They don't even have a clue what Halloween is this year and they are 33 months.

    Thanks everyone for supporting my "Grinch-ness" Looking forward to the many Halloweens we have ahead, event though it will never be in my top 5 holidays :-) (I miss my childhood days of the costume from the dress up box thrown together - usually was a gypsy or hobo - neither of which is a politically correct thing nowadays, LOL)

    Gail - what an adorable pair!! Love the angel/devil expressions - priceless!

    Default See how much they hate Halloween at this age, lol!

    Older DS would NEVER be a HOBO. I too was always a Gypsy from the Dress Up Barrell.

    Default Not looking forward to it either

    I have 20 month old twins (gg). I doubt they'll tolerate their costumes for long. And who knows how Halloween will go. I work an hour away on Fridays, and if you've seen my other posts yesterday and today my au pair is not happy right now. So, it's tough for us too. I feel for you. Ugh.

    Default Took DS to small neighborhood party when he was

    29 mos. dressed up as a little fireman. The party started at around 6 pm. He saw the neighborhood kids, rode around in the then popular powerwheel vehicles as a passenger with eyes as big as pie plates, and went home with us and went to bed.

    At 3 yrs old he also just went to the party. Too young for trick or treating after his bedtime, too young to eat the candy, and so not worth it imho.

    First time trick or treating after the neighborhood party was at age 4.

    He is now 6. We will still go to the party and then do a little trick or treating.


    I'm not a big fan of Halloween personally because I don't like scary/creepy stuff, and. I really don't like the collecting and candy eating part. When I was a kid we collected for UNICEF in those little organce boxes. Do kids still do that? I like the party though because I get to see the neighbors and the kids and socialize a bit. With everyone's schedules and kids going even to different schools, we don't see people that often. It's ad hoc, especially since I work.
