Guilty pleasure
If you've got older kids, admit it, you already know what I'm talking about... but for you first-time mommies, I thought I would let you in on one of the supreme pleasures of life that will probably start next year, almost certainly the year after: stealing candy from your child's Halloween bucket while they nap. Emily is happy to share her candy with us when we ask, but there is just something unexplainable about sneaking it out of the bucket and dampening those telltale crinkly sounds in the middle of the afternoon... priceless.

You can tell yourself that you're trying to minimize candy consumption to help them keep their teeth healthy, but seriously, let's be honest in cyberspace if nowhere else... there is just something cool about taking candy from a baby!
