Sometimes, as a parent, you’ve just got to let your kids do what they want to do. Take Halloween for example. My kids wanted to run from house to house, so I let them run. They were happy, I got home faster, they slept well. What could be better? About, oh, 2 seconds before bedtime, my son Danny decided he wanted his halloween candy to no longer be in his injection molded plastic pumpkin candy holder and instead be in his self decorated Halloween themed paper bag.
As I just mentioned, it was his bedtime, which I’d already mentally prepared for and wasn’t sure if I could regain the courage to approach if I didn’t go for it now.
But then he said this.
I think it will all fit in there!
I’m pretty sure he knows exactly where my mathematical curiosity buttons are.
So here’s another view of the situation.
Well? What do you think?
There’s only one way to find out, and it means postponing bedtime…but who cares?!?! It’s Halloween!!
So my question to you is this: What questions did your kids or students have about their Halloween Candy? Answer them together…there’s still time!
