A sucker for suckers

Part of being a home school mom means I have to take the kids with me when i run errands. Alot of my errands involves bribing my kids with suckers to be good, but a mom's got to do what a mom's got to do right? Anyone know of a 2 yr old who has 10 or more suckers just to keep quiet while sitting in a doctors office. Can you say sugar high! Well lucky for me I found a bag full of sugar free suckers at the dollar tree. I bought all they had. These suckers have helped potty train Landen (almost) and help me get alot of errands done. I even was able to go to get a quick eyebrow wax. I made them all sit down with suckers. I'm telling you it works!I am learning to bring sugar less suckers with me everywhere and plenty of them. Even Farrah likes running errands now.

I discovered the hard way that sugar-free candy causes gas! Riley and I were in a books store when I heard the loudest fart ever, and i was shcoked to know it came from my little princess. As everyone is looking at us she bursts out laughing and says to me " just farts Mommy, not poops!" I could have died...

Oh my goodness! I love it! Your kids will never look back and complain about all the running around they did with you. Lucky girl! My kids on the other hand.... well,we will just leave that for their future therapist to deal with.
