He looks harmless, right? According to a certain toddler living in our home, he’s a pretty scary dude. Even after repeated “introductions” wherein we point out his eyes, nose, mouth, and hair and even give him kisses, Calder remains rather uncertain of this scarecrow.
At one point I simply said the word “scarecrow” which incited the same scared response. Arms pulled back and high on his chest, backpeddling and raised eyebrows. Now, we call him “Sam” which he seems to be less afraid of.
So, I’m guessing that if this freaks him out, taking him trick-or-treating would likely be tragic. This might be a good year to stay home and hand out candy instead.
