Candy Monsters! Rawr! (Includes A Rant!)

Yet another Halloween over.

Cody was a Zombie Baseball Player.

Dylan was Harry Potter (note to self: I hate black spray hair paint).

Evan was Ironman.

And now- for the rant.

Selfish parents. Oh, not the type that takes things from their kids (like Halloween candy). No, I’m talking about the type that will put an infant that can’t walk or talk or eat anything that doesn’t come from a boob or bottle and trick or treat. It’s one thing when you have an older child and an infant- another when you don’t have an older child and are obviously trick or treating FOR YOURSELF.

We had a set of these parents. There were two, they were together. The dads pushed the strollers, carrying their sleeping children, who may or may not have been wearing costumes. The moms walked to the door, held out brown paper lunch bags, and begged for candy.

If you’re going to trick or treat for yourself, at least have the decency to dress up. Or dress the kids up. Or go when it’s not the child’s naptime so that I can ooh and aah over the adorableness in the stroller (I did a lot of that tonight).
