This year was kind of an odd Valentine's Day. I had to work, the kids had school and daycare, and Jason got sick. Both girls had Valentine's parties and got tons of candy. At holidays I usually let them a little then put their sacks up and ration it out. But they are always bugging me to eat it and then they don't eat their dinner, yada, yada. So I decided to try a different stradegy. I told them they could eat all they wanted. Eat it all for I care. They both looked at me like maybe Momma had lost her mind. But it actually worked really well. They ate a bunch, but some they decided wasn't that great so they threw it away to move onto better things. But it did get rid of 90% of their candy! I figured they are going to ingest it one way or another, who cares if it is all at once or over a month.
This is how Jason spent his Valentine's Day. He had the flu and looked like he was about to slip off into a coma. No fun!
