To my surprise, he had his first and only cavity.
I honestly thought there would be more (not that I wanted more:-).
The dental hygienist asked if he ate candy.
Is there such a thing as a mini-Buddy the Elf? I swear K would eat Snickers with spaghetti if I would let him.
Impulsively, I replied, "Oh noooooo. My kid never eats candy, he loves vegetables of all varieties."
Ok, not really. But I wanted to.
He comes by it naturally. I love chocolate, and my dad could eat Good N Plenty's by the bucket. My little brother has been known to eat an entire Oreo cookie package at one sitting.
When I caught Kayden climbing on the dog cage to reach a bag of candy on top of the fridge, I knew we had a problem.
I told him not to touch it, after all.
It was painful for him to watch me eat it as punishment.
Fortunately for him, the last few days has seen a flood of new candy. Trick or treating at papa's work, our church event, my parent's trunk or treat, and good ole trick or treating has filled up our pantry to overflowing.
Yes, there are eight full size candy bars in there.
How about you? Did it seem like your kids got a ton of candy this year?
