Trick-or-treating mommies with babies in strollers and those coming by at 3 and 4pm in the afternoon.. WTF?!
COME ON ladies! Seriously. What is it both with the infants "trick or treating" AND the parents bringing their kids by at 3 in the afternoon??!?
We live in a place where trick or treaters flock to our street, and so I've been buying candy for over a month, we have a ton of it, well over $250 (I really do love kids actually).. But there will also be the inevitable mommies tonight, a lot of them, with wee little babies who don't even eat solid food..
Yes, the kid is really adorable, squirming there in a little lamp outfit or whatever, but I have to make this candy stretch for all the kids who actually walk and eat.. My partner and I also don't mind giving candy out to the older kids if they happen to stop by. But sorry, you have to draw the line somewhere, and this year I'm doing it.
I'm expecting some shade throwing mommies tonight..
Stop luring innocent kids to your lair with your "sweet treats", creep.
You don't age-segment the treats, OP?
Choke-proof healthy snacks for the toddlers, the normal stuff for kids, and a mix of condoms and cigarettes for tweens and teens. Everyone is happy.
Oh I know why you're home passing out candy at three in the afternoon: this is a national holiday for witches.
How the fuck did you spend $250 on candy?!
You better be representin' in full drag tonight sister.

Where are all these straight women coming from?!
I think you should stock up on jarred baby food (or suckable puree packs, or tiny boxes of infant chewable snacks) and give ONLY that to the ridiculous moms pimping out their infant costumes to get adoration and free candy. People have no shame! Oh, and BTW...can you send me the leftovers?
My Kayelinn can't have anything with gluten or peanuts in it. I hope you've take her needs into account.
R$ has obviously not been shopping for candy lately. Candy is obsurdly expensive. A 12 oz bag of mini chocolates is $4.
This is how they do it in NYC. Kids go out with their parents after school and get candy from stores. It's too dangerous to do it at night and knock on the doors of potentially dangerous people in apartment buildings. Maybe they're doing it early because tomorrow's a school day?
"It's too dangerous to do it at night and knock on the doors of potentially dangerous people in apartment buildings."
It is? Where, precisely, do you live.
I do not understand the massive interest in the U.S. in Halloween.
I have paid zero attention to Halloween since about age 11 or 12.
Give those moms a sternly worded letter instead of candy!
OP, while I have no idea where you live, the kids in *my* city know better than to come out before 5:30 at the absolute earliest. Even then nothing really gets going until it starts getting dark around 6:30. I wouldn't even bother answering the door if idiotic frauen with *infants* in tow showed up demanding candy. Go to the grocery store for your Kit Kat fix, bitch!
R12 where in the world do you live?
Halloween is one of the best days of the year!
Go to West Hollywood. It'll be a blast.
Oh, for Christ's sake, OP! Give out the candy your bought and pipe down! Little babies in costumes are adorable, and you might actually get to meet and smile at your neighbors for once, before demanding that they get off your lawn again!

Do they decorate the stroller as an end table?
Babies in costume are a travesty and these parents are sick for inflicting their values on children too young to give consent.
I sit on my upper balcony and shower them in peanut shells, white bread, and orange soda when they dare to knock at MY door.
The OP sounds like a frau housewife - why is the OP home all afternoon rather than working at a job?
And the OP spending $250 for Halloween candy sounds like a decadent obsessive housewife who is trying to find meaning in life in his housewifery chores at home rather than having a profession or career in the world of work. (unless the OP happens to be retired and in over age 61)
r19 - Piggy, shameless parents pushing "adorable" babies are not adorable. Fuck em. They can buy their own candy.

Duh. The candy is obviously not for the infants. It's for the MOMMY FRAUS. They go home, put the kid to sleep, and then NOM NOM NOM!!!!
People who live in frau central deserve the hell for which they've settled.
We don't do this in Europe where every thing is smarter and better.
In my area, there are designated times where children area allowed to trick and treat. I assumed it was nationwide.
All sex offenders in my town must turn off their porch lights and cannot come to the door and hand out candy. Nor can they go to any party or function where there are children. I'm making note of who has a darkened porch.
$250 on candy? Obvious and outright lie. Besides, spending triple digets on candy would suggest that you are pretty into the spirit of the holiday and would get a kick out of seeing a baby dressed up as a lamp and wouldn't mind handing over a handful of candy.
I think OP is just very lonesome tonight.
