Halloween is officially over, but if your house is anything like mine, you’ve got buckets full of candy left from the holiday.
Jackson, Olivia and I adore Halloween, and I admit that we love candy as much as the next family. But buckets of candy? My teeth are starting to ache just thinking of all that we collected!
After the trick-or-treating bounty each year, I try to set limits, including letting the kids chose a handful of their favorite treats. Everything else goes into a pot that is controlled by Mom. Otherwise, I think I’d have two over-indulging kids.
We all know kids and sweets go hand-in-hand during Halloween. How do you help little ghosts and goblins find a treat balance during this scary season?
