About 4 hours or so until the big night of Trick or Treating begins. R is giddy, G is playing along, not really knowing what this whole mess is all about and I am about to go finish the rest of our Pumpkin Cookies to take to some neighbors tonight.
The cookies were a huge hit at the preschool party yesterday. Here is a picture of R and some of his classroom buddies:
R is the one scavenging in his treat bag, wearing the yellow fire fighter jacket. After the parade, we went into his classroom to help get his costume off so the teachers could begin the day. G, convinced he is 1 going on 5, decided that pre-K circle time was for him too:
Notice his, "what are you looking at, mommy?" glare.
Last year we let R have a fair amount of candy on Halloween night and then rationed him to one or two pieces a day after nap/quiet time each day, as long as he was on fairly good behavior. Of course, a few pieces here and there mysteriously disappeared every now and then, usually during nap time.
What's your take on Halloween candy? I have heard of all sorts of approaches, but what I described above worked for us last year.
