So my friend Liz passed along this ingenious idea to me last week to deal with the post-Hallowe'en excess- solicit a visit from the Hallowe'en fairy. After very carefully picking out six pieces of candy to keep, Declan then left the rest of his candy hanging on his bedroom gate. (Yes, we lock him in his room at night. Declan's judgment is questionable at best; he can not be left to his own devices. I hope this causes some controversy among my extensive readership, so that we can dub it GateGate. )
Anyway, Hallowe'en Fairy takes the candy while little one sleeps, leaving a present in exchange, and bob's your uncle.
Special bonus question: Can you tell what we had for dinner?
