  • How about trick or treating in the mall? I'd say bundle the new baby up real tight and put him/her in the stroller and just hit a couple houses in the neighborhood, But It's not exactly like you can just send your two year old up to a doorstep by himself. Plus, pushing a stroller and trying to keep up with a 2 year old in the dark is not my idea of fun. He's getting to the age where he's going to start remembering things, so I say make it a memorable experience for him :)

  • You have your hands tied! If I were you I would skip it. Just visit other family, friends, and neighbors near by so that he can wear his costume. He's still to young to remember it so dont kill yourself over it! Good luck! You'll figure it out!!

  • trick or treat with a neighbor who has an older child who could walk with your 2 yr old to the door while you stay with the stroller, sometimes the neighbor might stay with the stroller. I love Halloween and would try to get out even just one block so your son gets the experience. by the time you even go out, all the walking will tire him. One block or so may be enough. Use a small trickor treat bucket so it looks full fast.
