The last of the Halloween candy!!

Dec 2, 2010


We have reached a major milestone in our household this week. Little Roo is finally through the last of the Halloween candy. Her Halloween candy collection was a labor of love on her part, three hours of pounding the pavement on the cool autumn evening that was October 31, knocking on neighborhood doors, singing, "Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat, if you don't, I don't care, I'll pull down your underwear!"

For the record, I did NOT teach her that song. When I heard her sing it for the first time on Halloween, I was slightly mortified. My perfect little Australian child was giving repeat live performances of this very obnoxious song to complete strangers, insisting they give her candy. She on the other hand was delighted with the results of her singing; bags and bags of candy. Little Roo made me promise not to throw out the candy and I made her promise to eat it in moderation. So here we are, five weeks later at the end of the Halloween candy road, now time to go see the dentist!
