Sugar Overload

"Can I have more candy?" It's a line that has been said many, many times today. I know I am probably unlike most parents but I usually let the kids go wild with their candy for the first two days and then I start to ration it. If I play my cards right, the candy will last until the onslaught of Christmas candy arrives. I don't mind the sugared up kids as long as we are going to be staying home but I do often wonder if their reaction to all that sugar is akin to some diet pill side effects. The jitters, the waaaaaay too high of energy level, the lack of being able to focus for very long on one thing before flitting to another. I know all you moms of sugared up kids know what I'm talking about. :)

I have to admit though - they aren't the only ones on overload. I've pillaged my fair share of Snickers Bars today, too. :)

haha. Candy lasts forever around here. I just threw out some 2009 halloween candy to make room for 2010.

We let him go a little wild last night, but not again. One piece is plenty for his behavior issues. And hopefully he will get very little candy for Christmas.
