I took the two boys out trick or treating for Halloween, but the girls stayed home with Daddy. Zoey was fevered on and off and Emma is just too little.
They made out like bandits and there was way more candy then the kids are going to eat.
Now I’m one of those ‘mean’ parents that moderates how much candy my kids get. I put the candy out of sight and out of reach. Or so I thought.
The other day Hubs and I were sitting in the living room watching TV. We had this conversation:
M: where did the kids go?
H: I think they are playing their bedroom.
M: oh. Ok. Its really quiet I think I’m going to go check on them
As I stood up the kids came running out of the kitchen yelling:
Alex: mom! We found the treats!!
Nick: mom! Treats!
Zoey: eats! Yum!
They not only FOUND the treats, they also managed to climb up and get them down.
Apparently my kids who can’t handle playing cooperatively lately work together really well when there is candy involved. Who knew.
Love, hugs and more to come later
