How’s your Halloween candy consumption going? Do you throw it all away after a week? Let your kids trade it for a toy? Or something different all together?
We’ve just been eating it…slow and steady. Somehow, we’ve adopted the horrible habit of bribing Milo with a “treat” for finishing the last few bites of his dinner. I actually don’t stress too much about his eating. He seems to eat a lot when he’s hungry and not when he’s not. I know toddlers are supposed to regulate themselves, if offered healthy choices, and so I don’t usually force the issue. But for some reason, with a bowl of candy in the cupboard, “Two more bites and you can chose a treat!” keeps coming out of my mouth. It probably doesn’t hurt him, the extra bites or the candy. He seems to be a SweetTart lover, which is great for two reasons: it leaves the chocolate for Dave and me, and it keeps the chocolate off of his hands, face, and subsequently everything in his vicinity until I rescue the house with a wipe. He sure gets messy. Lucky for him, he’s adorable messy.
Also adorable, his new diapers that arrived a couple weeks ago (and saved me.) I’ve got a detailed review planned for next week, so you’ll get the full dish.
And, I’ve been training for the Richmond Half-Marathon, and it is Saturday, which means carb loading begins today. You better believe I’m taking advantage of that.
