In my opinion, get rid of it. No joke, between all sides of the family our children after it was all compiled 8.78 pounds of candy! Keep in mind, only two of them can eat candy and they are 3 and 19 months right now. How the heck would we ever feed our children this much candy? AND why? To torture ourselves everyday for the next year with children on a sugar high day in and day out?
There is not enough bribery in the world for this much candy. After consulting with a fellow momma bear she proclaimed, "throw it out in front of them." As my heart wrenched with the thought of hurting my own parents feelings that way, I first inquired with my local Facebook Bulletin Board to see if I could share these goods somewhere that may appreciate it - kids less fortunate around the Easter holiday, food shelves, I don't know... somewhere. I am not a mom that sits around waiting for things to happen so after 24 hours of no response, I opted to bring it 80% if it into work and set it on the lunch table. Two days later most of the candy is gone. I still feel amazing about myself (for not binge eating it after the kids were in bed).
What did I do with 20% of it... well, I portioned for bribery and baking needs. The question here ends up being what do you do with all that candy? Am I the only mom in the position?
