I highly recommend that you know the number to your local Poison Control Center so that when your 18-month old drinks a large amount of 409 cleaner you can call and set your mind at ease that it's okay that he's vomiting, 409 is just detergent and soap and that probably upset his stomach. A bath and a milk bottle will cure him.
Trick or treating in our area is always a scheduled affair by the city and rarely falls on the actual date of October 31. This year it is on October 27 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
