Is This What We Call Progress?

We just finished putting all 4 kids to bed on a Saturday night. True cause for celebration. I celebrated by doing what I’ve done every night since Halloween – stole a piece of candy from their sizable stash.

Come on, I know you all do the same thing.

Nearly a week after Halloween it’s pretty well picked over and most of the really good stuff is gone. Now it’s filled with these teeny, tiny, bite-sized candies that hardly qualify as candy.

When I was a kid, I remember getting full-sized candy bars for Halloween. Or at least ones that were more than a single bite.

Sure, I know there is a problem with child obesity today and kids eat too much junk food and are getting fat blah blah blah. And I know it’s touch economic times and people need to cut back.

But aren’t some traditions worth keeping?

  1. And one appears more cultured and refined when eating one in this manner. Although, I would not have time for that with one Thing, so I’m not sure how you get away with it with four Things.

  2. Sofhie, det lÃ¥ter som om du helt enkelt hade fliken ”HTML” aktiverad. Du har tvÃ¥ flikar uppe till höger ovanför fältet där du skriver inlägg: ”Synlig” & ”HTML”. Fliken ”Synlig” visar inlägget som WYSIWYG och HTML visar HTML-koden.
