The Lies We Tell Others...The Lies We Tell Ourselves.

I grew up in New Rochelle at a time when it was more than OK to send your kids out trick or treating to stranger's houses! My favorite was the lady up the street who gave out FULL SIZE Hershey bars!!!! She only allowed us to take one and we had to take it slowly...not like my Uncle Joe would affectionately call us! LOLO!

I currently live in New York City where I see the cutest kids (not cuter than my nephew and niece!!...but then I'm biased!) Trick or Treating AT DUANE READE!!!! For anyone who isn't from New York...that is a drug store!!! So there I am getting some cotton balls and nail polish remover and there is a woman with her kid dressed up as a robot (store bought..I mean really...where are the kids imagination these days!!) she was getting Stay Free Maxi Pads and her kid was screaming Trick or Treat!!! The cashier took the cash for the woman's product and handed the kid two small pieces of candy that he proceeded to eat with the plastic on!!! (My niece and nephew wouldn't do that!!...but then again I'm biased :)

So if you're going out with your kids Trick or Treating...remember to explain to your kids about portion control!! Be the best role model for them by eating healthy and exercising!!! Nothing wrong with one or two bite size Snickers...but freeze the rest and portion out accordingly!

Enjoy and BE SAFE!!!!!

More later...

Keep me posted!
