    Last year, Spawn had to be pushed and prodded to hold his bag out at the door. You can FORGET getting him to say Trick or Treat!

    This year...every time we go to the store, or he sees a pumpkin on someone's doorstep, " It HALLOWEEN Momma LOOK! I wanna pumpkin Momma! Trick or Treat! Let's go Trick or Treat! It's Halloween, it's HalloWEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!!!"

    LMAO

    He's so into it, it's awesome! I credit Dora and Diego's Halloween Special Hahahahahahahahaha!!!

    DS2.5 was so stoked to go trick or treating this year. He's finally grasped the whole Halloween thing. Doesn't look like it's going to happen this year.

    @love DS sounds just like that in Target! Every time we go we have to go see the Halloween section.

    My kids have been asking if it's time for "CostumePartyTrickorTreat" every day for over a week. I'll be so glad when it's over!

    Oh my son is terrified about the whole ordeal! I'm still gonna dress him up and we will go trick or treating. I hope if he sees that halloween means sweeties, he might be less scared lol

    I finally had to threaten no trick-or-treating if they didn't settle the fuck down last night lol It was just out of control! Today I took a more proactive approach and did Halloween crafts with DS and am carving pumpkins tonight with both of them...  We'll see if everyone survives until tomorrow night! lol Then of course, there's the sugar rush fallout... sigh... who the fuck came up with this holiday anyway???!!!

    Yep..we are ALL excited..including me..looking forward to the candy...LOL
  • I don't think my children understand yet. But, they do love candy. I'm sure they'll be all over the place tonight when we go to trunk or treat and tomorrow's trick or treat. I'm the one excited so far. I can't wait to put on their costumes in an hour! :)

    We had a trick or treat thing at my work. My four year old said "smell my feet" instead of trick or treat and the person laughed so hard. Now my little guy says it to everyone!! And they all think its adorable so I don't see this one going away for awhile.

    My son is excited, but the weather is pretty bad this year, so I am not going to pass out candy.

    My ds7 is autistic and absolutely refuses to wear his costume.  I have to take his siblings trick-or-treating, should I take him anyway?  He likes to trick-or-treat but if I force him to wear the costume his melt-down will ruin everyone's night.  Just hope I don't run into those nasty neighbors that tell the kids "no costume, no candy"

    @coda I would take him :-) and maybe just to homes /people you know that would understand :-)  But I would think that with the awareness of autism that you wouldn't run into nasty people  (i know I am a peacemaker) and maybe put some candy in your pocket to drop in along the way to seed his bucket in case it's too overwhelming for him ;-)

    @coda My son has sensory issues and wouldn't wear a costume last year. I made a thomas the tank engine face on a tshirt for him and he wore that as his costume. I would take him anyway. Just don't make him go up to the house if he doesn't want to. Whatever he is comfortable doing.

    Thank you!  Sometimes it's enough to know I'm not alone.  Great idea piratej101321 I think I will bring some candy along in case he gets "stage fright"

    @coda I am TOTALLY one to say "no costume!? No candy!" but (I'm pretty sure!) it's always been older teenagers who didn't have a lot of business trick or treating anyway. But I'm going to be a lot more sensitive and keep sensory disorders in mind because of your post. My actions were from ignorance, not malice, but I will be more thoughtful from now on!

     @coda I'd take him. My little brother is autistic and a couple of times my mom took him without a costume, and if anyone mentioned it my mom would just explain and they're usually fine with it. People can be pretty understanding once they know what's going on.

    just an update, we took him trick-or-treating....stashed his costume in the trunk in case he changed his mind, as soon as he saw all the other kids dressed up he wanted to wear his.  WIN!  He had a blast!  Thanks again SMs.
