I don’t know about you guys, but we’re all fired up for Valentine’s Day at my house. Especially our 9-year-old. She delights in the amorous holiday and takes great pride in the Valentine Cards she makes for her classmates. And though that fact is an undeniable one, the skeptic in me can’t help but attribute her diligence to a desire for sugar. Because that’s really what makes the holiday appealing for her. Candy, that is.
Of course, along with candy comes the potential for hyperactivity and a cavity or two. And while neither one of those things are good, they’re absolutely nothing compared to what one set of parents has already had to deal with.
