This week was a big first for me. My first time passing out candy to little people dressed in bizarre outfits. Earlier Halloween day, I was on the phone with my mom when my brother called her to ask how much candy he needed to buy – would he get trick or treaters? How many? Costco-sized bag? Turns out this year was also his first time, and I laughed at him for calling mom. Truth be told, I was just as nervous; how many pieces do I give each child? Do I put it in their bag or do I let them pick? Do I say anything to them? Yes, I may have googled “protocol for passing out candy on Halloween.” Guys, nothing useful will pop-up there – we all know not to pass out homemade goods (these pumpkin cookies were a tempting thought though). When the interwebs failed me, I turned to my friend Nicole. 1-2 pieces per child, put it in their bag, comment on their costume. Got it. Oh, I should add that I decided to throw on my half of our couples “double rainbow” costume from last year. There’s nothing scary about an adult female dressed as a rainbow, right?
