I love Halloween! For a long time it was my favorite holiday. Fall, in general, is my favorite time of year, but the candy, the throwing together a last minute costume, going to haunted houses and getting chased by chainsaw guy, the candy...it's just so much fun. Now that the kids are here it's a totally different experience! It's not so much the chainsaws and haunted houses that scare me, but the sudden onslaught of sweets that doesn't stop until January! First, I can't even control MYSELF when it comes to sugary snacks...but now I also have to listen to the "I wanna piece of candy"...and "I don't want grilled cheese, I just want some candy". Really, how can I say no when I feel the same way?! I remember when Devin and Cody used to "share" their Halloween candy (everything but the Reeces Peanutbutter Cups...those were for their mom). They'd offer one piece and I'd sneak two! What a terrible aunt! My poor kids are going to think they only got 3 pieces of candy for Halloween... Good luck to all of you during the upcoming festivities. Be strong and just say "NO" (or at least "maybe just one").
