The Judging Begins

I am now a judge.

A judge to all these questions:



  • Can I have a piece of candy?


  • Can I have 2 pieces?


  • Can I have 3 pieces?


  • How many pieces can I have?


  • How many pieces can I have if they are little, like jelly beans?


  • How many pieces can I have if they are little like M&M's?


  • Can I have one big one like this malted milk egg and 2 little ones?


  • How many big pieces and how many little pieces?


  • Can I have a piece of candy?


  • Can I have a piece of candy?


  • Can I have a piece of candy?


  • He had a bigger piece than me!


  • Mom! She had a bigger piece than me!


  • Mom! She's eating her candy already.


  • Can I have a piece of candy?

The questions have begun and we haven't even eaten breakfast!


What do you do?

  1. That's funny! I have given less candy each year ... and I encourage them to eat it quickly. So, there were three small eggs filled with candy and a large Reese's peanut butter egg. Most everyone eats the large eggs right away on Sunday - they're a favorite. The rest goes by the end of the week. As long as they've eaten breakfast and dinner/lunch, I don't mind if they have a handful in the afternoon. Happy judging!!

  2. Man, can I identify.

    I told them, if you keep bugging me, it's mine. I'll tell you when you can have a piece! (Generally, after meals, and during our afternoon school break. The faster it's gone, the better, in my book!)

    Like Suzie, mine only got a chocolate bunny, a chocolate cross, and a small bag of jelly beans. But ... then we went to some friends' house for the afternoon, and they quadrupled what they got from the bunny! Ugh.

    Good luck. And wish me well, too. The candy questions drive me crazy!

  3. I let my older boys handle it themselves. They need to learn self-control.

    Other kids get to pick some out of their bag when chores/homework are done. Usually 2 or 3 pieces...whatever they want.

    I eat more then them so I cannot complain.

  4. Just let them eat it all at once, get a stomachache and be done with it. But they are too big to ask, so there.
