I'm sick of having to keep it up high because Aidyn man snuck it yesterday, and thus didn't sleep half the night!
(yes I did this myself in paint. don't hate!)
So today when the kids were in a fight, I stood up to see what was going on. As I rounded the corner I heard a door slam. Scared, I ran faster! I could just picture little fingers caught in the jam.As I turned the corner, there it was. Spilled all over the linoleum floor. Easter egg chocolates, jelly beans, Hershey kisses, the WHOLE ENCHILADA. Hundreds of colorful candies exploded on the floor.
NO KIDS TO BE FOUND. They hid in a hurry.
"THATS IT!" I screamed as I scooped up big handfuls of candy and threw them into the buckets. I grabbed all three buckets, and found an empty garbage bag. GOODBYE CALORIES! GOODBYE WHINY CHILDREN! GOODBYE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS! GOODBYEEEEEEE!
At this all three children were now perched in front of me. Their eyes huge, tears running down their faces, and screams coming from their mouths. You'd have thought I told them the Easter bunny wasn't real. They were HYSTERICAL!
I almost gave their candy back.. but then I noticed the mess in their rooms and in the basement. I remembered the whining.. I remembered the sneaking.. I remembered all of it. No way jose'! There was no turning back!
Out to the garbage can it went! All of it! They cried and carried on for a good half hour. I listened and consoled, but soon enough they were back to playing. It is a relief to have it out of the house. I am so happy that there are no more "candy" holidays until October! See ya next year E.bunny! Next year can you bring less candy, and a few more carrots! You'd make me a much happier Momma!
