And Then There Was None

Finally, the blasted Halloween candy is gone from our house! It only took 2 weeks, but we managed to overdose on enough candy that we finally could see the bottom of the bowl today. I swear, if I hear one more child ask if they can have a piece of candy after shoveling down the least amount of "real" food that would be required to partake in such an indulgence, I will scream! I've finally gotten to the point that I could care less if they even eat "real" food first. They glance sideways at me and I say "sure, go get some candy". Anything to get it out of the house!

Yes, I realize I could have just thrown it all away on Nov. 1st, but those older princesses, they would KNOW. And that would make me a Mean Mommy. And we just can't have that. I don't have the energy for it right now.


  1. Ours will be going buh-bye on Monday when the big boys are in school. I'm tired of the jack-o-lantern buckets grinning down at me from the cabinet tops.
    I let all the kids have their fill on Halloween night (well, and the weekend that followed), but then I get really stingy with it after that. We sorted out all the good candy to keep for decorating gingerbread houses at Christmas and the rest is outta here.

  2. So glad I wasn't the only one who finally just gave up the battle and just said, "Sure, go for it!" LOL! I didn't have the energy to play the Halloween candy game either.


Let me know what you think!
