Halloween for kids?

Walking into a Halloween store with your kids is risky business now a days. Although the creepiness of some decorations and costumes seems to grow in realism and bizarreness each year, that is the least of a parent's concerns.

I turned the corner of an aisle in the local October-only store today to hear my ten year old say, "What's a sperm suit?" Ahhhh. There was an entire wall of adult-only costumes on display a stones throw away from the "hats" aisle. And no less than 50% of the "girls" section was filled with costumes of all genres with their own sex-driven twist on them. Little red riding hood is now little miss whore with a short red skirt.

We love going to these stores to hang out and play with the goofy costume accessories. But it's getting harder and harder to do that now.
