Halloween at Walgreens

Dear Ms. Walgreen Worker, 

Although it might be your job to stock shelves full of dark, creepy death-like halloween junk to celebrate the coming holiday, it is NOT your job to hold my two year old's hand and try to teach her to not be scared. So, the next time you think you are doing a public service by encouraging a little girl on to the dark side and cheering her on to press the blood red buttons of the death reaper so it's eyes pop out as he growls in harmony with the other creatures from the dead in the shopping isle, remember that this little girl is not yours to expose whatever you might think is the right thing to do. 

I am my little girl's mommy. I am the one who has to get up and sprint to her room at 2 a.m. when she has night terrors every night since our Walgreens outing. I am the one who is trying to mold her and teach her about good and pure things. She will learn about what you are trying to teach her as her friends and the TV will expose her to the dark side soon enough. Until then, I want to keep her from aisle 666. Mind your own bizwax lady! We will take some candy corn though.

Thank you.

Ok.. so I want to run over there and smack the lady in Walgreens - feeling all protective for your little girl and all our kids.

Alex got scared a few halloweens ago, so hard.

Oh me....that is awful. I don't even go down the isle myself because I don't like "dark side" things.

Candy corn does rock though...

What is wrong with people? I am all for protecting the innocence of children, candy corn and all.
