Best Mom Tip #109: Step away from the candy

I am stealing my children’s Halloween candy. I know that it is expected, but it is not helping with my problem of not being able to wear any pants without elastic in them. Also, the children seem to notice that stuff is missing.

Charlotte separated out a very large pile that she said we could have, which I thought was awfully nice of her. Griffin just keeps asking if he can eat the giant tootsie pop. Speaking of tootsie pops, Charlotte ate a mini one and when she got to the center she said, “what is this in the middle?” I said, “that’s the tootsie roll. Do you know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?” Then I sang “whatever it is I think I see…” She looked at me funny and said, “soooo, I can eat it?”
Last night after I got them out of their Spiderman and Spidergirl costumes I snuggled Charlotte in her bed and said, “I love you, Spidergirl.” She replied sleepily, “I love you, Spidermommy.”
It’s worth the damage to my diet to see their delight, explain tootsie rolls, and watch them throw their webs. I love Halloween.
