Almine, I feel the same reluctance to feed the Trick or Treat kids coming to my door at Halloween unhealthy candy. You were considering not opening your door and turning your lights out. How did that work out for you?
I’m embarrassed to say: not well! The above photo is the reason for my downfall in this regard.
As you know, the children come trick or treating Halloween evening. He came this morning. His mother apologetically said he slept with his costume on and couldn’t wait. I heard his little rain boots plop-plop up the path that led up to my front door, before I saw him. “Twick o’ Tweet” he said proudly. He had obviously been rehearsing it many times. I hesitated, vaguely remembering my resolution not to pollute this little boy with sugar infested candy. His big blue eyes looked up at me from under his plastic construction hat. He saw my hesitation and his little mouth pouted. In that moment, defenseless against his trembling bottom lip, I reached for a handful of candy and was rewarded by a dimpled smile. He swung his bag of loot triumphantly as he marched to the next house down the street and I retreated in defeat.
And later on the same night..
800 kids and counting. I’m going to have to do a lot of Belvaspata on all the kids I’m feeding sugar to!
What is Belvaspata? Read more about it here.
This is hilarious Almine. 😀🎉🌹xxx
Who can resist the innocence of a child!
I’m sure everything will be just fine… 🙂 What a joy to see little children having fun pretending they are something else…ahahahaha .
Good idea Belvaspata. 🙂
That is Soooo cute ! Not 1 child called to my house …..I found this Very Strange….I had feelings of excitement and deep contentment as I baked for some of the afternoon..
I didn’t really want to be giving them lots of sweets either…I wondered ..is this why no one called…?
I am now left with two boxes of sweets, to my teenage son’s delight…needless to say I will have to hide the other box or give it away ! I still wonder why no one called..
I did however do a long BVP healing on myself and included my son , as a proxy ,later that evening
Certainly put a smile on my face…..;)
So, kinda interesting that this was a theme this year. I had no intentions to give out candy, but my partner did. Turns out he scheduled an appointment with a house remodeler this very night. I therefor had to give out the candy myself while he was busy.
