I have been so hit and miss this week due to a wretched illness that hit our home - first striking baby boy and then me! But we are both almost at 100% and back among the living! We have been shut-in's for a solid week, with the exception of a fun evening out for a Trunk or Treat ... more on that next week.
But today, I have a question.
We have lots and lots of candy that Levi gathered up from the Trunk or Treat, and there is more in our future. Levi still insists on getting "potty treats" (even though he's been trained for months - I swear he's going to want them until he's 8), so I have been using the little bites of his trick or treat candy for potty treats since Wednesday. (I usually don't use candy as treats, but now that I have a plethora, I have been.) I know a lot of parents let their children go hog wild on their candy when they get home from trick or treating and others limit to a couple of pieces a day.
Oh this candy - this multiplying candy. I was wondering what y'all do with your trick or treat candy. Do you let your kiddos gobble up as much as they can handle for one night? Do you limit to a couple pieces until it's gone? Do you let them have some and then give the rest away? Or do you do something totally different?
I don't think my child is old enough yet to get more than I want to let him have, because trust me, he'd never stop eating it. And I don't want this baby to get cavities, so I'm always running around brushing those little teeth after he eats a piece.
Maybe I'm paranoid? Maybe I'm over thinking it? Tell me your policy on Trick or Treat candy!
