Got to take the kids out trick or treating tonight. Although I'm not a big fan of the holiday (or Christmas either, but that's a seperate issue), it was nice to be able to chaperone the girls so they could have a good time.
Saw lots of other families out and about, with kids of various ages. Commented with a few of the other parents about sugar loaded kids on a school night. This little one at least has been sensible and is in bed ready for school tomorrow.
Thought of a stupid "if we won lotto" idea, to drive around in a van with 'free candy' hand painted on the sides and giving out loads of lollies. The list of reasons why that is stupid is pretty long...
Very glad to not have seen any incidents or any people misbehaving. No doubt they were out there, but at least none came near my flock. That's something to be thankful for.
