Halloween Mama Hack: The Switch Witch Giveaway (with Discount Code!)
When I was a kid, back in the old-west of the ’80s, we returned home from Trick or Treating and dumped out our pillowcases onto the floor. My sister and I traded for our favorites and then ate candy until we cried with stomach-aches.
Now that I’m a mom, I do things a little differently. Maybe I just have less patience for fighting and whining than my own mom did. But when my kids eat sugar, they turn into hyperactive, disrespectful, whiny monsters. And not the cute furry kind.
So every year after Halloween, I find a place to stash their bounty and then I let them have 1-2 pieces of candy a day. I usually still have candy left at Easter! And then more candy arrives courtesy of the Easter Bunny.
This year, we’ll try something different. I first heard about this brilliant parenting hack from some friends of mine whose daughter is now about to head off to college. (Lucky them, they had their kids early in life. I’m a geriatric mother.) They’d have her leave her bounty of candy outside for “The Great Pumpkin” to come, take it, and leave her a NON-CANDY surprise.
Now, we can try this tradition out ourselves complete with a doll (think Elf on a Shelf the Halloween Version) and original story book. Meet The Switch Witch!
Whether its to avoid sugared-up monsters or because your child is unable to eat candy because of a health issue like diabetes, Switch Witch is a #MamaHack for you!
