Sweets



Seriously I have a addiction to sugar. I need it after every meal. This used to be no big deal until I had children. I'm supposed to be setting a good healthy example for them right? I like food but I LOVE sweets. I swear some days I get most my calorie intake in sugar or baked goods. THIS MUST STOP. I made brownies last night, the night before I bought a yummy sour cream raspberry cake, the day before that I had rice crispy treats..this list goes on and on and on...
I really don't want to be a hypocrite to my kids about sweets..I mean its o.k for me to have cookies for breakfast ( with a protein shake of course ha ha) but not my kids???
I DO let then have sweets, in moderation.. My one daughter really shows signs of sugar love too. Poor poor child of mine.



So I finally purchased a dress up for my son. All these Halloween outfits are on super sale so I bought him a pirate outfit. He loves it! Usually he will play dress up with his sister's pile of dress up clothes. This includes princesses, fairies, mermaids, a ballerina tutu ..you get the idea. We would laugh and he would have a ball. Then if he was feeling more..manly he would wear a few of his jammies, he has superman and a skeleton which was also one of his Halloween costumes. So now he has a little more to choose from. He wore that outfit to bed! Cried when I took it off him for a bath too. He kept walking around the house saying "Arrg Matey"

I have a sugar addiction too! I really don't feel full until I've had something! I went crazy and bought $30 of halloween candy and every night I have at least two pieces - just makes me feel good!

Love the new costume for your little man - what a cutie!

Oh my goodness, I love Auggie's pirate costume! You have such a good idea, buying dress up costumes on sale! And I have the same sweet addiction problem. Must be pregnancy that does it to us!!
