Healthier and happier

Not only are our food choices healthier but since I have stopped controlling sleep and chores and T.V. watching and video games our family is healthier and happier. It didn't happen overnight but it's been like this long enough that I can't imagine our lives any other way.

    I just realized my children turn down sweets all the time!

    I've tried to maintain a candy bowl in hands reach for years. They stopped emptying it pretty much right away. Got comfortable with the idea that candy is always available if they want some.

    And this past Halloween 2 of mine chose to skip trick or treating in favor of other activities. And one gave me back a pretty full bag to put in the family candy bowl.

    Guess who eats most of the candy now? 🙋🙋

    I still have stories in my head about candy being bad. But I don't think my kids do. Their stories are like this pic. Just candy!

    Thank you for all you do!
