We went to the St. Patick's Day parade yesterday. The best part of the parade was the candy throwing. If you are 3 and 5, that is the parade.
Ellie came home and busted into her candy bag (there wasn't all the much). The girls are great with the candy they get. They bring me up pieces and ask "is this gum?" They know they are not allowed to eat gum so they bring it to me. Ellie ended up eating almost of her bag. I warned her that it could cause her stomach to hurt later.
She walked up to me a few hours later and said, "Mommy, I guess your right. My stomach hurts". I never thought I would hear those words form her. It definetely needed perserved for prosperity.
