Ugh, Halloween came and went. I am not a fan of Halloween and especially not a fan of the candy. I really try to keep the sugar out of our diet. I am so fed up with this question, "Mom, can I have a piece of candy". How I hear it is similar to nails scratching down a chalk board. Right now, I limit the kids to 1-2 pieces a day. I just realized that in the end that will result in many, many, many more days of the dread question. To be honest, I am almost waiting for my kids to be bad so they have to dump their candy as a consequence (that did happen 2 years ago).
