Emily wised up this year, and I am very sad about her smarts. Normally the kids have to give me their candy bags "for inspection." That is when I loot my children blind. I mean, when I remove all of the Almond Joys, York Peppermint Patties, and possibly Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (but only the smooshed ones. I'm not a monster.)

She flat out refused last night. She gave me a dirty look and said to her father, "I know Mom's trick and she's not getting any of my stuff this time."

I
WHAT
WHO SAID YOU
THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE

I am sour facing all over the place, even if my waist line is not unhappy about this. (I still have booze, after all.)

ION, the little boys down the street that The Boy normally babysits for went trick or treating for him, since he couldn't go. :) I sent their parents a text telling them how awesome I think they are.

(And of course, I'll have them deliver it before The Boy comes home so I can relieve the bag of those pesky Almond Joys. MUAH AH AH.) Okay, so I am a monster. A MONSTER WITH DELICIOUS TREATS.

Wait. We get to go through our kids' candy and take things?

WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS BEFORE?

(This actually is a bit of a shock to me, though. LOL My parents never did it.)

Aww for the little boys down the street! <3

SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU'RE HONEST? You miss out on Mars bars, that's what.

This is what parents do when they're "checking your candy" to make sure it's safe. Yours just might have been to clever by half, Miss Muse....

(Seriously, how sweet was that of them?)

Nope; they actually checked my candy with me there. I would have seen them take any.

Although I am nice enough that I did offer them at least a piece or two. :)

(I expect I will follow in their footsteps. I'm more likely to make the museling donate his candy at the fire station than take it for myself. :D But I wouldn't infringe on your own rights of candy-stealing.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
