  • Whenever you want. You show up at my house in a costume and you're getting candy - 2wks - 200 yrs I don't care. People who complain that kids are too old are too crotchety IMO - it's just some freaking candy; chill people; lol

  • i"m torn on this issue....i don't like answering the door to anyone over the age of 12....but at the same time, my oldest girl is 11 and I can't imagine stopping her from going out any time real soon.... I stopped at 13....but it was my choice....back then it just wasn't a cool thing to do after that age....I still got dressed up and got together with friends or went to teen dances....but I shut my lights out at 8 to avoid getting the older kids....
