What age do you think is too old to go trick or treating?
I am leaning towards Junior High age.
But I really don't know what to do with Jayden this year.
I remember how bad my mom hated teenagers trick or treating at our house.
"It's just ridiculous!" she would say, "They should all have JOBS!"
So one year, she emptied out all of the little boxes of Junior Mints and Dots, and refilled those boxes with dried beans. Then she hot-glued the little boxes shut again, and put them in her fancy plastic Halloween bowl.
When the doorbell rang, she would answer, and depending on the age of the child, she would grab the appropriate bowl.
She would literally cackle, when those older kids would dig into the faux-candy bowl.
"Have a few! (my pretties......)
I think it was her funnest year ever...getting that payback.
So I guess that is why I am thinking Junior High is old enough.
We just fixed up all of Jayden's teeth, I can't imagine him chomping down on some dried beans from grandma's house.
