So what do you do about that pillowcase full of 40 pounds of candy that your kid brings home? Don't you get tired of being the "Candy Police"?
One year I got so tired of it that I told my kids to "Go ahead. Eat as much as you want." So my oldest son completely pigged out. A few hours later, he was barfing his guts out. Hee. I never had to police his candy intake again.
Anyway, listen up. This was on the Today Show this morning and I think it's a brilliant idea:
Head over to HalloweenCandyBuyBack.com for more details, but, in a nutshell, your kids take their candy to a participating dentist, who pays them $1.00 for every pound of candy!
Now here's the absolute best part- the dentist then sends all that collected candy to our military people overseas!
Is that not a freakin' BRILLIANT idea? Unfortunately, there's no dentist anywhere near me who's participating, but I'm giving the link to my dentist next week when I go in.
And now I leave you with these words of wisdom passed on to me by a wise old co-worker of mine many, many years ago...
When the weather's hot and sticky,
That's no time for dunkin' dicky.
But when the frost is on the pumpkin,
That's the time for dicky dunkin'.
