Happy Halloween!

So Halloween is widely known as the holiday that all parents hate...Why? C-A-N-D-Y! If your like me, I limit my daughters candy intake to a strict minimum but Halloween I have to fart around that rule - a bit! I am not one of those Moms that doesnt let her kid trick or treat...But I am one of these Moms:

1. Check the Candy
I am a Nazi with this! I check the candy thoroughly. This day and age I dont want to take any chances. Sure I live in a very credible neighborhood with awesome neighbors, but we all have bad days! So before she can partake of any candy it is checked by me...and my boyfriend!

2. Amount
She is allowed ONE piece of candy after it is checked, and then allowed ONE piece of candy daily until she forgets about it..Usually a week! HaHa. Yes she absolutely forgets that we have candy...Why because it is hidden, forbidden, for nobody to find but me - MOM!

3. Hiding the Goods
Oh yes, we hide them. Usually in the back of a cabinet that you cant see it even if I open the cabinet. The goal is to have my daughter forget it exists! Ha, Im so bad!

Hope everyone has a Creepy Crawly Spooky Haunted Spidery Halloween!!

When kids get excited...

Do they jump up and down?


If you are blessed to have a wonderful, fun loving, Divalicious daughter like mine...She wakes me up at a God awful time of the morning to tell me shes going on vacation! For about 6 months my parents have had it planned that they take my daughter on vacation to a resort in Orlando in October. The first thing my Mom does is tell my daughter (yes, 6 months ahead of time), so I have 6 months to hear about how vacation is coming, and we are going to "Mouse House" etc. So the time has came (today) for my daughter to go on "cation" with my parents to "Lando." My daughter is usually up by 6:30-6:45 on school mornings. This morning was an exception...


Here comes my child completely excited about "cation." This was the convo we had at 4:45 this morning

Kyleigh: Mommy Mommy WAKE UP (shaking me)
Mommy: Kyleigh Lynn, really?
Kyleigh: Im going on cation today wake up and braid my hair
Mommy: Kyleigh it is 4:45 in the morning we have 2 hrs to sleep
Kyleigh: But Mommy...
fastword 30 seconds...and Dad becomes involved!
Daddy: Kyleigh go to bed it is NOT time to get up
Kyleigh: ooooo no cation
Mommy: No your going on vacation alright...Right to your bed
Kyleigh: whatever, you never let me party
Daddy: Kyleigh....

She runs off!
