Kidlets will pick out a pumpkin and clamor and whine and beg to carve it.
But it’s the Daddies who get stuck with the knife and the smell of pumpkin guts.
Kidlets will agree to pose for obligatory Halloween photos.
But they won’t agree to smile . . .
And they won’t agree to look at the camera.
(except for your two-month-old, who will be silently questioning what in the heck he’s gotten himself into)
