Sugar high

Jonathan and I went to Biola today to help out with Blessed Sacrament's table at the Church Expo. Jonathan was a little shell-shocked by all the people, so I wasn't surprised when he just wanted to climb up into my lap and sit quietly.

But he was so quiet, for such a very long time.

That's when I realized that his mouth was stuffed with Starburst candies. You know, the ones we had lying on the table to attract people to come talk to us. He had been quietly consuming all of them within reach...paper and all. I pulled the remains of at least four out of his mouth, but I have no idea how much he actually swallowed.

He was a little crazy all afternoon - running around in circles yelling "gooee, oh eee!" over and over and over and over again. Then he slept twice as long as normal during his afternoon nap.

I think we are wise to keep sugar to a minimum for this kid!

That's the funniest story I've heard today!

Oh no!! That is really funny though, and such a classic toddler sort of thing to do.

I think you're wise to keep sugar at a minimum too. :-)
