Halloween Candy: A Cautionary Tale

I wonder exactly how long I will get away with telling my toddler (who is fascinated by both the bulge of my cheek and the butterscotch-y scent wafting from my mouth as I tie his shoes) that Mama is merely sucking on some medicine, and when he shouts, Want some med-sin, too, Mama! I have some, too?, how long I'll actually get away with wrinkling up my nose and pursing my lips and saying, It's yucky!

I hope at least till the candy bowl is empty.

~Wink wink.~


(Never fear. Little Man gets his share of candy- all my children do. Sometimes, though, Mama needs to pop a piece in secret to sweeten the next few moments... you understand, don't you?)

;) yes ma'am! good stuff!

Kelly T said...

Yep... I walked into Sophie's room shortly after sneaking a piece yesterday and she said, "I smell chocolate." Busted!! :)

Christine said...

{wiping chocolate from her upper lip} I have absolutely NO idea what you're talking about...

*winkwink*

Sara said...

Yes, yes, yes! Raising my hand--I'm guilty too.

Michelle said...

totally understand! Although this year the dog ate most all of the Halloween candy. Probably better for both Alyssa and I that way :)
