Normally, when the kids acquire a large amount of candy (holidays, parades, etc.), everything gets combined into one container that lives on a high shelf in the kitchen where I can ration it out accordingly. With the kitchen in disarray, Emily had quietly taken her bag of parade candy up to her room and hid it in the back of her closet. She started out asking once a day if she could have a piece for a snack (our usual ration amount). However, while looking for something in her room, I found her secret stash complete with all the EMPTY candy wrappers. Who knows how many pieces she ate every night after being put to bed?!? This picture doesn't even begin to do it justice. The whole bag was stuffed full.
