Sweets on Valentines

Today is Valentine's Day.

There are sweets ALL.OVER.THE.PLACE.

I understand this.



Sugar. Sugar. Sugar.

When I was elementary school, we had a class party every year.

While I don't tend to give my kids candy, I'm fine with my kids class participating in a clas party ever year.

I'm okay with them eating a few pieces of candy while they're having fun with their friends.

I kind of expect that.

But who was the genius parent who brought strawberry flavored milk to my son's class party?


Couldn't they have brought some plain low-fat milk to help wash off the sugar from the kids' mouths?

Couldn't that parent at least have brought ONE healthy item into that classroom?

[shaking head]
