You may wonder why a mother who limits sugar (especially high fructose corn syrup) in her children's diets allows them to eat Skittles.
Frankly, its all about the bribe.
Yes, I'm one of those mom's who believes in a little bribery.
Whenever Carissa and Caleb successfully use the potty they can choose one Skittle from the jar. They are always proud of their 'job well-done' and get soooo excited about their little piece of candy.
I guess moderation has served us well here.
And, I hope it serves their teeth well...eeek!
When the twins choose their single Skittle they pick the same colors in the same order. Their first color choice is typically gone before they choose the next color/flavor.
(In case you were wondering, the bribery has been fairly successful. Carissa only wears a diaper to bed and Caleb is working towards the same in his 'Cars' Pull-ups. Yeah!)
What is your Order of the Skittles?
