A Little zanie-ness

The musings of a brilliant mind (and a whole lot of day to day stuff that isn't quite so brilliant!)

Halloween Overdrive

Boy, I sure do wish people would give healthier treats. Both little girls got full-sized candy bars in their buckets this year. Tootsie Rolls and Butterfingers and Baby Ruths. One house even gave them mini cans of Jones Soda.

It has all been removed from their possession because apparently 4-year old + candy=sneaky, lying child. Yuck. Twice in the span of an hour, Lil Sis lied about the candy she had eaten or was trying to eat. Not a very good scenario. Besides, a little girl this tiny doesn't need candy. We need to pack as much nutrition into her as possible. Candy fills up that spot where the good stuff should be.

Baby Girl is a little more well-behaved over the whole candy issue, but will sneak and lie about it too. It's just terrible!

I know, I know, kids LOVE candy and act the fool over it, but this just seems to go to a different level. Before Lil Sis came to us, she subsisted mainly on candy and junk. BioMom thought nothing of dropping $20 on candy bars and gum several times a week, hence the reason Lil Sis is such a fiend.

I wonder if anyone will notice if I eat all their good stuff...
