Because I'm a responsible parent

I check my children's candy after they go trick or treating.

Trick or Treating was held early this year (no idea why), and my children had pretty full pumpkins.

I just checked it, and found a really suspicious mini snickers and Mr Goodbar. I did what any responsible, caring, parent would do, and ate them so the kids would be safe.

I do the same thing. However my dd is still a little young, so certain hard candies she cannot have.

You are clearly a very responsible parent, good job! I will have to take out all of the suspicious looking Reese's Pumpkins. Those are shady shady candies. Ahhh, the things we do for our kids.

That used to work, but now mine are bigger. So, I have to "check" their candy, unsupervised, of course. I wouldn't want them traumatized should I find anything frightening.

Well you see, dd can't have solids as she is only 2 months. So, I'm taking her candy for safety reasons.
