candy, candy, candy

We have two children in this house of candy eating age. One simply enjoys eating candy and one is completely obsessed by it. Can you guess which one asks for candy at least 100 times a day?

How is a mom to cope with the candy obsession?  Hide the candy! Out of sight, out of mind, right?  Not with Austin. He doesn't forget about the jack-o-lantern stored away in the pantry on a shelf he can't reach.

When we don't let him have candy, sometimes he will ask if he can "check on it".  He just wants to see it and make sure it's doing ok.  What a funny kid!

That is so funny. Leave the jack o lantern on the shelf. Just secretly remove the candy a few pieces at a time. Then one day, soon, the candy will be all gone. You can make a big deal out of Austin eating all of his candy!
