Not only do we have Halloween coming up, but the whole holiday season!
For kids--and for ourselves--it is a nightmare! First things first, do you do anything to limit sweets around Halloween?
My husband (my big kid!) always asks me to be sure and get in candy for trick or treaters. Well, for years, we have had no more than 2 children stop by!!! So 'you-know-who' really wants the candy. And I can't keep my hands off it if it is in the house!
The fire dept. has a big party for any kids in the town. And parents less and less are sending their kids out on the streets. For a few years there, parents were even driving their kids to 'promising' neighborhoods or streets! I don't think that still happens --at least on the street I live on.
