Last night was Halloween. I'm not big on Halloween. It's an American tradition, and really, just involves dressing up and knocking on strangers doors and asking for chocolate and lollies. I'm ok with dressing up. I love it when my kids dress up. I am ok, sorta, with chocolate and lollies. I do think my children eat too much junk, but am aware there are kids out there who eat more junk than my kids, and other kids who eat waaaayyy too much more junk than my kids. I like it in moderation. It's the knocking on strangers doors that gets me. What are we teaching our kids. This doesn't help my stranger danger discussions. My baby is only 19mths, what must be going through her mind?

Today, though, not as much success. We're still a work in progress and she is only 19 months old but I'm confident she's going to 'get' it soon!
