Just two moms letting off some steam

Halloween came and went. We survived. Only 364 more days until candy related worries will be revived.

But…unbeknownst to me, little gremlins and goblins had left unwanted and half eaten treats on my lawn.

My very helpful son Brody took matters into his own hands, or should I say mouth, and cleaned up the candy before his horrified father noticed Brody’s “good deeds.”

As soon as I heard, “LEEEAH!!!!!” I knew I was not going to be pleased.

And I wasn’t. Brody had sampled a smorgasbord of previously chewed gum and unpopular Halloween candy choices disposed of in our yard. Curses!

Where were the clove faced oranges when I needed them?

Was there a price to be paid for this indiscretion?

You betcha!

Oscar the Grouch came to visit and wreaked havoc in our household for a couple of days. And on top of that, we had some unpleasant bathroom issues.

Our decision to celebrate Halloween by taking the kids, decked out in their costumes, to a toy store in an effort to avoid candy hell was validated. We have the memories and pictures we crave without the negative side effects that candy brings for our kids.

p.s. – important lesson learned… check your yard for candy land mines before letting your kids outside the day after Halloween!
