Do You Steal From Your Kids?
Do you steal from your kids? I do. I steal their Halloween candy after they have gone to bed....yes, call me a horrible mother if you will, but there is no way I am letting them eat ALL the goodies they collect. I am saving their teeth and their health - I guess you can call me a good mom then!
When they arrive home on Halloween night, we dump out their goodies and I check them over. Once that is done, they are allowed to choose 3 items to consume. After that, we discard any that they don't like. Now, once they have gone to bed, I go through and take out any items that I LOVE (of course, if it is their favorite, then it stays) and it goes into a large roasting pan that is tucked away on the top of my kitchen cupboards. This only comes down at night, after they have gone to bed, for hubby and I to snack on!
I make sure to leave only enough candy for a few days in their bags, and they are allowed to munch on a few pieces a day. They are even allowed to have it for breakfast on November 1st.....bad mom again!
What are your "rules" about Halloween candy? Does the Switch Witch pay a visit to your house? Do you dole it out or are they allowed control over it?
