I've been exonerated.
When my sons were young and went trick or treating I always took their "loot" and examined it closely. I took out all the unwrapped or sloppily wrapped candy and they generously gave me whatever they didn't like.
Now, this is why so many of my friends felt that I was a cruel mother. I told them that they could have only three pieces each night and I had possession of their bags. It was their bedtime treat. Eventually they got bored and forgot all about the candy.
This past Sunday I was watching Sunday House Call on Fox News. One of the doctors, I don't remember which one suggested rationing the candy, allowing the children 3 or 4 pieces a day.
See, everybody who thought I was cruel to my children, I WAS RIGHT!!
