I'm not by any means the candy police, but it really bugs me when I pick up DS from preschool on/near a holiday and other parents have decided to pass out transparent goody bags filled with candy. Every parent that picks up their kid has the same frustrated look on their face while listening to their kids demands for candy at 5pm. All the way home, during dinner time and after clearing up, DS has asked to eat candy.
Now I have to deal with DS's meltdown while I explain that he's only eating dinner tonight while I have to figure out where to dispose of this candy. He has a small cavity on his left molar--thanks to the usual knockdown drag-out fight over brushing his teeth all during his 2nd year.
I'm know that it was a nice gesture, but still....arrgggh!!!! If he hadn't seen the bag, I would've just left them at the center.
What do other moms do when you little one is given tons of candy at school? Do you cross your fingers that they didn't discover it and leave it behind?
