  • I would honestly keep the sick kiddo home, and maybe even the 7 month. If you have a parent around, or a friend, I would ask them to take the other child (and maybe the baby) trick or treating for you. It bites to miss out, but your sick kiddo needs you.

  • Awwwww.... do you have a family member who can watch him for an hour or so or maybe a neighbor.

  • Keep the 7 month old home with you and Cole. Ask a neighbor to take the other boy around.

  • I agree with the post above me. Seven months is awfully young anyway. Hope your little one feels better soon!!

  • Hope he feels better soon. Poor little guy. HOPE you found someone to take the other children or atleast sit with your sick baby why you took your other children out for atleast a block or two. HUGS. I took my 7m old out and he wasn't at all thrilled. ;( Next yr he'll love it I'm sure.
