I wish I could say that I don’t have a sweet tooth, but I do. I pretty much want to eat candy (preferably chocolate candy) every day.
And so I do.
I love being the mom and getting to make the rules: Candy for Mom Every Day. Or Else.
Usually, a couple of Hershey Kisses or a fun-sized bar will do the trick - just enough to fulfill my longing for sweets. So I’m extra excited about Today’s Small Thing, which is to give a Candy Theme of Your Choice to today’s task.
You will pick a candy and create a task to go with it. Let me show you what I mean:
M&M's - Do Minimum Maintenance - soooo obvious, Rachel.
Almond Joy - Sometimes you feel like a nut? Do something silly.
Baby Ruth - Do a baby task- straighten diapers, clean the changing table.....or just play with that baby. Hey, your choice, honey.
Twix - “Betwixt and Between” - clean in between tiles, floss between teeth, squeeze in a nap between TV shows.
Snickers - Do something naughty....let your imagination be your guide.
Milky Way - Do some star-gazing tonight.
3 Musketeers - All for one, one for all - share the work with the kids, no sword fighting, tights optional.
Ferrer Rocher - do something classy: wear jewelry at home, eat on real plates, drink water out of goblets. Say "Dahling," a lot.
Kiss - well, I shouldn’t have to explain that one, should I??
Crunch Bar - Do some stomach crunches, crunch some numbers as you balance your check book, crunch on some carrots.
Butterfingers - Fix something that some "butterfingers" may have broken.
Jelly Belly - Do some exercise to get rid of your own jelly belly, or tickle someone else’s jelly belly.
Are you getting the idea? Now listen, I’m not going to make this TOO easy on you. No, you’re going to have to leave a comment, telling us your own Candy Theme and what you are doing to fulfill it - that is only fair. (You can be vague if “snicker” is your theme...please). Feel free to choose a candy/task from this list....or create your own.
POINTS: 100,000 - KIDDING! (That’s a candy bar, btw)
POINTS: 50 for picking a candy theme and task, AND sharing it here in the comments. HAVE FUN!
