Thank goodness it is Halloween! Yes, yes, what a thrill it is for little kids to dress up and run around collecting way more candy than they could ever actually eat, which is the part I love the best. They have no idea, while their sweet little heads are resting from a long night of hard work; I am “helping” them with their stash.
It is my duty really, as a parent, to protect them from the dangers of consuming too much candy. I definitely don’t want their little tummies to ache and their minds and bodies to be delirious from the consumption of too much sugar, so… help, I must.
I do have a system though…I must first help with the chocolate – it’s toxic for dogs you see, it would just be a terrible nightmare for us should our dog ingest some, so it absolutely must go first.
Then, there is taffy and hard candy – choking hazards – both of them. Definite choking hazards…must be consumed by a parent…so my child will not be in any danger.
Then I will help with the other forms of candy that I cannot really come up with a good reason why they need my help with these, but it is just in my nature to be as helpful as possible.
The real trick with all this helping is to do so in such a way that the child/children do not realize their bounty is slightly lighter in the mornings than it was when they went to sleep to the night before.
I suppose there are some people that are quite horrified at how much I help my children with their Halloween candy, but this parenting gig is a tough job…got to enjoy the perks when they present themselves.
