There's nothing quite like the first Halloween when your kid is old enough to understand the concept of trick-or-treating. It's hilarious to see how quickly they catch on: Say trick-or-treat (or don't, just stand there and look cute and shell-shocked). Hold out bag (or pumpkin, or cauldron, or whatever). Get candy!
And this happens at every house!?!? Why don't we do this every day??
Plus, dressing up toddlers is pretty much the most fun you can have in this life. Sure, you thought your kid was cute before, but look at him in that doggie costume! He's the most adorable creature ever born!!
But for your toddler's first trick-or-treating experience, a costume has to be more than cute. It has to be easy to wear. Trust me, it's all your kid can do to keep up with the doorbell/candy routine. This is no time for a wardrobe malfunction.
If I sound like I'm speaking from experience, well ... I am. I've picked up a thing or two on the Halloween parade circuit over the years. And so I invite you to learn from my mistakes! Before you buy a disguise, check out the following list of Halloween Toddler Costumes to Avoid ...
Don't let these happen to you!
