Halloween 2007

Here they are: Burger King, a Deviless, a wacky lady, Santa, and the fairy princess. L. had already left and is not in the photo, but he was a party animal, which consisted of a monkey mask wearing a hat that said party animal. He trick or treated with a friend whose older brother drove them around in a golf cart, resulting in WAY too much candy being acquired.

The 3 girls walked around together, and Daryl and I took the 2 little ones around riding in their wagon. A's fairy princess dress was a tad too long, so she had to be helped up the steps to every porch so she wouldn't fall. The Santa costume, chosen by K., and which I thought would be hard to find in a small size but I luckily stumbled on one at Babies R Us, turned out to be the biggest hit. People thought it was hilarious and very original.

Despite having my membranes stripped that afternoon and doing a lot of walking, the evening only resulted in too much candy, no baby.

Last Friday, 9 days after Halloween, I tossed all remaining candy due to sugar poisoning. I tired of the crying over wanting more candy, and complete meltdowns over wanting candy for breakfast. I honestly think that the more they ate the worse they behaved. Even J., 13, said some nasty things about how mean I am for throwing it out. Today, after several days of detox, they seem to be back to their sweet selves.

Oh, I a in touch with that! I do believe sugar affects certain kids. My 7yo gets unbelievably billigerant when he has sugar.

The Candy Sprite has come to our house for the last few years. She takes the candy and leaves a small toy. It has elliminated the problem. I let them gorge for about 3 days then make a big deal about the CS and what kind of little toy they will get.

Hang in there. That baby will be there before you know it!
