HAPPY HALLOWEEN! ...From The Halloween Grinch!I just want to start by saying, I used to be cool. I used to be fun and throw caution to the wind... then I became a mother. I became an overprotective, paranoid, spineless, yet strict, mother. A perfect example of this change is me being an asshat about Halloween. I big mean over protective and over cautious ass!
This Halloween is my two-year-old's first Halloween to trick-or-treat and score an abundance of candy.
Candy that I won't let him eat.
Well, I won't let him eat it all. That's right, I'm THAT mom! Never in my widest dreams did I think I would be such a stick-in-the-mud about Halloween with my toddler. But, I am.
Funny how I finally get why my mom was the way she was about Halloween... I used to be so annoyed that I couldn't eat any candy without her inspecting it, or that I could only have 5 pieces after the inspection, and then a few more each day until it was gone. All this time I thought my mom was just being mean... and now, I am totally going to do the same!
