    And what's better anyways: Allowing my stepson to collapse in a sugar-coma stupor on the floor before he is carried to his room for bedtime, or allowing small amounts of sugar to sustain unbearable hyperactivity throughout the whole day (until we ban him to his room for bedtime and still hear him jumping on his bed throwing his beloved "kiwi-bird" stuffed toy so high it knocks on the ceiling)? :rofl:

    A hyperactive kid in a coma stupor is not good? :)

    That's usually TOPS in my book! But then again, that's why I'm not meant to have any kids...

    For every piece of candy they eat, give them a tea-spoon of Nyquil.

    I'm counting on that working just as well for adults:blushing:

    :rofl: Yep, seems there's many reasons to just let them gorge themselves on candy. I have my "Body Parts" candy for my two anatomy classes tomorrow (I don't teach on Friday). :biggrin: It actually looks like the most awful kind of candy, but it was too funny and appropriate to pass up when I saw it. :biggrin:
