I hate parade candy. There is way too much of it and not enough at the same time. Little monster is still well little, so he doesn’t run as far in to the street(thank goodness) or as fast as the other kids, leaving him to cry because he isn’t allowed to grab that piece of candy just out of reach.
It’s sticky and hot what is eaten makes the overly hot kids thirsty. What isn’t eaten is put in to the diaper bag where it melts in to a sticky mess. On a related note does anyone know how to get melted candy out of a diaper bag?
Once I tried to bring a bag of candy along because I knew I was going to be at the parade without papa Gears, it didn’t work the candy I bought must have been of an inferior quality or something because when that one green tootsie roll flew near enough to him that he could have picked it up but a older faster child swooped it up it was all over. So a POX on parade candy! (On the candy, not the kids who eat it)
On a funny note Grandma Knows-it-all told the little monster that if he waves, he’ll get more candy so he waved at everything for an hour or so weather we had people in front of us or not .
