Nikolas donned his fireman's costume, again, and joined the under 5 set in the neighborhood for some trick or treating. A pack of kids went round the circle with their mothers in tow, ringing door bells soliciting candy. After which, mothers piped in "[name], now what do you say?". To which, said kid mumbles under his or her breath, "Thank you". It was a very successful trip with lots of bounty.
He was allowed one treat and what did he choose but the one thing I wasn't really keen on him having; a Pixie stick. He had no idea what it was but he knew, instinctively, that I didn't want him swallowing 100% flavored sugar. He got it... With me pouring the sugar; some into his mouth, some into the garbage!
