Besides it being trick or treat time, I have two friends celebrating birthdays today. Both choose to celebrate after Halloween, so this upcoming weekend the cake happens. They have kids, and taking them out for a fun night in the neighborhood takes precedence over celebrating on the actual day of birth.
This sugary day must follow with a good teeth brushing and floss. Kids are having class parties prior to tonights door to door haul. When I was growing up, the orthodontist that lived at the end of our block gave out toothbrushes. My mom would remind us to make sure we went to his house. I'd do the same if an orthodontist lived by me. I'd also take some therapy sessions from the psychiatrist that lives across the street from me, but that might take too long.

Halloween Safety Tips for Grown-ups
Parents of trick-or-treating kids can get so caught up in the fun themselves that they might forget some simple safety ideas that could keep everyone out of trouble. Having a fun and safe Halloween will make it all worth while!
Kids love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy! What a perfect holiday! Give your kids some precious Halloween memories that they'll have for life.
If you take your kids to a sponsored event, like a safe Halloween thrown by your church or community center, make sure to keep an eye on them at al times. Even though it seems less dangerous, you are still in a strange environment full of people that you don't know. All it takes is a minute with your back turned to find your child gone.
Cell phones are everywhere now! Everyone seems to have one, they can be so affordable. Make sure that your child has a pre-programmed cell phone with him/her if they go out on Halloween night! Make sure that all important numbers are already there and ready for use.
Below are more common sense tips that can help adults keep their kids safe.
As bad as it sounds, this is just a fact of life now. Get on the internet and check your local state website for sex offenders. Almost every state has one, just do a search for your state sex offender site. Look up your zip code and it should have a list of registered offenders in your area that includes street addresses. Make sure that your kids stay away from these houses!
Halloween is a fun time for the family, but not always for our four-legged kids. As much as we like to get them involved in all we do, it's important to remember this can be a "scary" time for them. Here are a few things you can do to keep your pets safe and secure during the holiday.
Even the most social dogs and cats can get stressed from so many visitors coming to your door. Keeping pets in a separate room away from the front door may be best. It will also help keep one of your pets from slipping out the door and into the night. Keeping a leash on your pet is another option if keeping them in another area isn't possible. Make sure to have proper identification on your pet in the case they do get out the door while you're handing out candy. If you tend to have a lot of trick-o-treaters, sitting outside might be your best bet.
Remember to keep the candy out of reach of your pets. Chocolate can be especially dangerous to our four-legged friends. If your pet consumes chocolate or candy, call your veterinarian as soon as possible. Emergency clinics are open after hours in the case that your pet needs veterinary attention.
