The Homestretch of the Sugar Mountain Marathon

As a rule,I don't let Isabel have a lot of candy. She is happy if she gets an occasional lollipop or peppermint.

After reading some suggestions from other folks, I went with the idea of letting her eat all she wanted of the Halloween candy, from her school party on Friday through bedtime tonight.

While last night was a bit rough - she was awake until almost 11:00 singing what sounded like Broadway tunes in the next room - I think it was a good plan. She had her full, had that sugar high, and the obligatory crash that followed.

With the exception of the candy canes at Christmas, I have a 3.5 month reprieve until the next round at Valentine's Day.

Oh, you're good. My Dahlia dreams of her Halloween loot. I'm hoping she'll eat so much of it, she'll get sick (in a good way).

So far, she's showing no signs of slowing down.

You are brave :) That sugar high all the way until 11pm...

What a gorgeous little girl... take care

Saw your blog on Rumor Queen's site. Love the sepia toned pictures! Your daughter is so cute. It sounds like you are an elementary school Spanish teacher, is that right? My daughter (from Chongqing) just started kindergarten at a Spanish language immersion school here in Tulsa and loves it.

Thanks for the fun read!
