His Tweet Reveals What It Is Like To Be A Parent On Halloween

James Breakwel is the father to four children and his Twitter account has been going viral thanks to a series of humorous tweets sharing his children’s observations and antics surrounding Halloween. Example tweets include:

  • An exchange between he and his four-year-old on why they only trick-or-treat during Halloween, with the child replying with the observation that they could at least try it on other days.
  • Another exchange with the four-year-old wanting to wear their wizard costume prior to Halloween and countering claims of ruining the costume’s magic by using magic to fix things.
  • Yet another exchange where the four-year-old seems to want go trick-or-treating early in order to get all of the candy.
  • Declaring that all of the children are to put their earned candy in a large communal bowl; regardless of whether or not this makes it easier for the kids to share, it gives James a better shot at sneaking some for himself.
  • His six-year-old questioning why he would be heading to the grocery store for food when all the child thinks she needs is the free candy.
  • Laughing at the challenge of carving a face out of the scribbled mess drawn on a pumpkin by his two-year-old. Complete with picture. This also becomes relevant after discovering that the child is afraid of the lit jack-o-lanterns.
  • Sharing a Harry Potter-themed picture of he and his children dressed up for the holiday.
  • Commenting that while a two-year-old will likely have no memory of going trick-or-treating, it does mean he’ll be able to fill an extra bag of candy.
