Let’s Talk Tuesday: Halloween Safety Trips

Happy Tuesday, Dinos – let’s talk Halloween!  In just under a week lots of superheroes, princesses, pokemon, and all kinds of other cute and/or creepy little creatures will be wandering around, knocking on doors and asking for treats.  Halloween is probably right up there under that certain holiday that is quickly coming up and I am totally not ready for yet, as one of our kiddos’ favorite holidays.  Who doesn’t love dressing up and getting free candy all night long?  But unfortunately, it can also be a dangerous and tragic holiday if you don’t take certain precautions, especially while trick-or-treating in the dark or carving pumpkins with sharp knives.  The American Academy of Pediatrics has a great website here with tips to keep kids safe, including:
