I'm handling Halloween differently this year. It's tough to have all of that candy in the house! It's has no nutritional value...it's not good for me, the kids or hubby. I've come too far on my journey to let this time of year be a trigger for me.
This year I am making a plan. I told each child they could pick 10 candies to save from their loot. I am getting rid of the rest! Instead I will replace their candy with $10 and take them each to Target to choose a special gift instead. I believe one of our local dentists is also offering a similar incentive for the kids so I will explore that option as well. My message to the kids will reinforce moderation. This is the first time we are trying this, so wish me luck!
