The girls went to a candy carnival tonight (ie: not trick-or-treating, but just fun and games at a church where they also hand out buckets of candy). They made it home with most of their candy, but I did have to sneak out a Milky Way. And a Snickers. Okay, and Tootsie Roll too. But that was it. Because it turns out that my girls very specifically chose much of their candy and they will know (and protest too much) if some of it goes missing. I don't know how they keep a mental inventory of all of their candy but they do. They can't remember to pick up their socks, but they can remember that they HAD TWO HERSEY BARS AND WHAT HAPPENED TO MY TWO HERSEY BARS?!!
Obviously, candy trumps socks in terms of things to remember.
In the spirit of candy loving people everywhere, I ask you what your favorite candy is. Are you a candy corn kind of person? Or do you just go straight for the name brand candy bars?
Maybe you skip candy altogether and just head to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte.
I wouldn't blame you on that one.
