Our little guy is one of the many sporting a Spiderman costume today. Somehow this year, Halloween has turned into a season. Just like the lead up to Christmas involves a ton of parties and events ... we've already gone to plenty Halloween events, costume parades and mini trick or treats. It really seems to have grown into a life of its own this year.
And seriously, how much candy does a 3 year old really need? Of course, he's still young enough, so we can get rid of some of it and he won't even miss it. Perfect example, gum ... he can, not for the life of him, figure it out. He so desperately wants to chew it - but keeps swallowing it and asking for another piece. I have no doubt, he'll get plenty of it when he trick or treats ... And I plan to ditch it as soon as possible.
That being said, he is so ridiculously excited and if you are going to spend money on a costume - you might as well get your money's worth out of it!
