People must think we deprive our child of candy. That she never, ever gets any. When we're out in public & there's candy involved, she gets super excited. She shouts about candy and that she wants some.
Truth is, we give her candy, in moderation. Also, she doesn't really like it. We've already established we have the weirdest 3 year old in history. After all, she asks for hummus & cous cous. We've given her different kinds of candy. Most of it, she just spits out & says yuck. She thinks she likes it, but she really doesn't.
For the record, there is some candy she likes. Paige likes M&M's, Laffy Taffy & Nerds. Everything else ends up in the trash. So yes, you can give her candy. But please make sure it's one of these 3. Otherwise, you'll have a sticky hand full of candy.
