I know that there are those of you that read this blog every week. (Thanks, Mom.) So you’ve probably been wondering why I haven’t posted since October. Was I kidnaped by aliens and forced to sit idly for days watching soap operas? (I wish!) Did the kids tie me up and stash me in a closet somewhere so they could play unlimited Wii and eat ice cream for dinner? (They wish!) Did I win an all-expense paid vacation to Hawaii? (Yeah, now we’re deeply in the world of fantasy.)
So what was I doing? Well, I was being a good mom. The kids took in the following load of candy for Halloween.
Was I supposed to let their little bodies take in THAT much sugar? Of course not. That would be bad for their teeth and their overall health. So like any good mom, I’ve been spending the last two weeks scarfing down candy to keep my children from having to do it.
It’s been hard some days when I didn’t think I could eat another Reece’s cup to save my life. But when you have children, you make sacrifices for their well being. No need to nominate me for the “Mom of the Year” award.
