WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- A mother in the U.S. capital posted a message outside her home addressed to the thief who stole her 2-year-old son's pumpkin.

Becky Reina said her family carved four Halloween pumpkins, including one for 2-year-old Tommy, and the toddler's pumpkin turned up missing from outside their home last week, WTOP-TV, Washington, reported Tuesday.

"To the person who stole my son's pumpkin: Thank you for the life lesson. This will help teach him that sometimes people are mean for no reason, and you have to just brush it off. Because my son is 2 years old and cannot read the sign, I will add, you are an [expletive]," Reina wrote on a poster board she put outside the home.

Reina said pumpkins in the area are often stolen and smashed, but Tommy's pumpkin was the only one of the four outside her home to be targeted. She said the pumpkin was likely among those found destroyed by neighbors.
