I'm thankful for Halloween candy

The sugary treats began trickling in a few days before trick-or-treating this year and I got smart.
I remembered someone that worked in our kids church in VA saying "candy is the currency of children". 
I could pretty much get them to do anything, pronto for a piece.
Turns out the opposite works just as well.
"Kids!" I announced.
"If you tell me a lie, I take a piece of your candy."
No chances.
The first answer must be the truth.

Did you wash your hands?
Did you put your pjs in the hamper?
Who took my phone?
Who left the door open?
Did you drink all of your water?

First time: the truth. Or it'll cost ya.

Like magic, it worked. We've had a big, fat, truth fest for weeks!! They keep each other accountable. They coyly smile before answering signaling their contemplation.

Since mine are young enough, I'm considering replenishing the supply as it is dwindling just to keep this party going. Pin It
