My mum never let me go Trick Or Treating. She said it was pretty much begging and dangerous to go to strangers houses. As a ten year old I thought she was the most unfair mother in the world. As a 31 year old with a child of my own, I have to agree with her!
Problem is, I don’t want to be seen as the most unfair mother in the world. It’s going to happen. I know this and there is not much I can do to avoid it other than let him go, which isn’t going to happen!
Luckily, at the age of 16 months, Mini R has no clue about Halloween or Trick Or Treating. Even so we had a little party for him and three of his friends:
The monster, ghost, cat and pumpkin were all extremely cute, well behaved and had lots of fun. We had a buffet of sausage rolls, Pom bears, green pop corn, blueberries, grapes, cakes, buns and many more!
I like this version of Halloween. It doesn’t require me to stand in the freezing cold whilst my son visits houses which is how i predict the future Halloweens will be…only to houses I know or that have decorations though. #MumsRules
