“Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands — and then eat just one of the pieces.” — Judith Viorst


How are you coping with your child’s Halloween candy hangover? And your own? Did you, too, hear Christmas music in the grocery store today?

  1. Wow, what a stash! No hangover here – we don’t do Halloween so to speak. Looks like fun though (for them, if not for you!). Christmas came to Australian stores about two weeks ago. October. What’s that all about?

  2. OMG – what are you going to do with all those sweets?!? I thought we had it bad!! The Tsunamis are on rations – I lolly after dinner if they eat all their vegies or salad. They are probably sneaking, but that’s what being a kid is all about!!!

    Christmas has been creeping into the Sydney CBD since early September. I can’t stand it, although it doesn’t bother me as much as Woolies stocking Hot Cross Buns in January this year!!! Grrrrrr…

  3. I am very impressed with my daughter who has stuck pretty much to my rule of one bar a day – which is more than I can say for myself as I raid our own leftovers from our trick or treat basket 🙂

  4. We ration too. Although today was a bake sale at my girl’s school, so we also had cookies fresh from the oven last night and more today. The big bucket full of candy is kind of half forgotten already. And I am working on my own rationing scheme. By that I mean, I will ration it when it’s all gone.

  5. Oh wow, do I love that quote! But on certain days, I can manage that. Lately, not.

  6. Oh yeah. Christmas season has fully encroached upon our world already. Good golly, it’s early!

    I had Snickers for breakfast. don’t judge.

  7. Too much candy here, too!

    Yes. Target is already decorated for Christmas. My daughter marveled that they’re skipping Thanksgiving!

  8. We just kinda of hide some of the candy so it slowly disappears!!! Hey, you would think Christmas is next week if you went by the stores. Way early, but I think I will really be in Christmas mood this year early…

  9. We have hardly any candy rationing to do around here – this year was a tiny introduction, but I know next year will be a different monster entirely. I let him exhaust his tiny stash of tootsie rolls and whoppers in the first two days – now we’re using tootsie roll pops for poop treats. Eh.
    I can remember saving my candy past Christmas when I was a kid.
    And no Christmas music yet! I’m trying to restrain myself from getting out my own collection. Once I hear it over grocery store speakers, I’m a goner.

  10. My daughter has the pox of some sort, so we didn’t go trick or treating. Yay and boo. The good news is we don’t have 20 lbs of candy to eat. The bad news is we don’t have 20 lbs of candy to eat.

  11. My daughter gets one candy treat per day this week. She’s been pretty good and I am proud of her. I haven’t heard Christmas music yet, but have seen the decor in the store. Halloween wasn’t even over and most of the stores had stock the shelves with Santas.

  12. Alas, no hangover here. Though I desperately wanted lots of chocolate, our neighborhood was stingy! Rude. ; )

  13. I would take trick or treating over the grown up Halloween parties any day. Oh to be a kid again.

    I think I need to borrow a kid or two next year.

    Happy almost Christmas everyone 🙂

  14. Wow! That’s quite a haul! Honestly, we haven’t looked into her Halloween pail since we got home. I really should…

  15. I haven’t heard the music yet but saw my first christmas commercial! Love the cute little ballet toes! And the chocolate- eating engineer :).

  16. Love the picture of your daughter’s ballerina shoes. Um, hangover? Yes, still. Seriously, someone really just need to take this candy away, because it’s hard to stop.
