Hey Ladies! I need some help. I am a single mom raising 4 kids (12,4,4,11 months). My oldest daughter still wants to dress up for Halloween. I had told her last year that it was probably going to be her last time trick or treating. Of course now that it is October again, she is pouting because she wants to still dress up & beg for candy at strangers houses? lol She is a great daughter & big sister. I know that she doesn't want to be left out. But she doesn't look like or want to be treated like a little kid. I have reassured her that she will still get plenty of treats, I don't allow any of the kids free control over their junk food. The twins will end up with maybe a dozen pieces spread out for the 1st week of November. Then they forget about it & it "disappears". The baby might get a sucker or two. Plenty of extra snacks for her to pick from. Any way I just think that as kids get older they start getting annoyed looks. Not sure how to handle this. Help!
