Halloween: A Dentist’s Nemesis Holiday

October 30, 2010 at 9:01 AM Leave a comment

My kids love dressing up for halloween and collecting candy from our neighbors. What child doesn’t?!
However, I can’t help but feel like a hypocrite participating in this tradition that pumps out children full of sugar for days!!!
Imagine how I feel opening the door to my house and putting a smile on my face as I knowingly hand out nuggets of “bad for you” to little princesses and cowboys.

One year I wanted to hand out toothbrushes or toothpaste. Hubby veto’d it stating that he didn’t want to be “that house” in the neighborhood. Plus, he didn’t want to spend the rest of the week cleaning up toilet paper from our bushes as we would likely be “TP’d” for being halloween party poopers. Sigh.

This halloween, remember me as you sift through your child’s candy stash picking out your favorites once they have gone to sleep. Then call me when you’re ready to deal with the consequences of indulgence. I’ll be waiting…patiently.
