Here is my question.
When exactly did Halloween become "Dress Like a Whore" Day.
I took my 12 and 9 year old daughters to one of those "pop-up" Halloween stores yesterday, and since the tween is now too big for the kids' section, we browsed the adult section.
Do they have a nurse costume? No. Slutty nurse? Sure.
Angel? No. Slutty angel? You bet.
Slutty leprechaun, slutty referee, slutty cop, slutty devil, slutty girl scout, slutty schoolgirl, slutty Dorothy, slutty nun and even slutty gardener.
Plus there's a whole section of clear stripper heels, vinyl boots, fishnets and thigh-highs. I guess the slutty gardener would lose some street cred sporting flowered gardening clogs from Smith & Hawkins.
(this is where the gardener's knee pads comment goes but I'm obstaining...)
All I'm saying is - they're only children. And as the parent, it is up to you to choose something classic and appropriate.
Like I did for my 9 year old.
