I think perhaps a better suggestion that I made to David is to have
said "Thank you" to all those neighbors who were kind enough, last
year, to purchase alternatives to the chocolate/peanut favorites.
Some of you had 2 bowls for the children to choose from, and that was
VERY thoughtful of you.
Some safe alternatives include: Nerds, Sweetarts, Skittles, ringpops,
Starbursts, Tic Tacs, Pixie Stix, etc.
We did, in fact, wipe down each package of candy after we separated
what was safe and not safe so that the children could handle them
Please forgive any "disturbance in the Force" this may have caused,
as we REALLY do NOT follow the Brittany Spears School of Parental
Care and allow our kids to handle anything dangerous. David was
trying to be protective, but I think he simply forgot that Highland
Lake extends far beyond the reaches of a 15-kid classroom.
Please enjoy your holiday, and we'll be sure to be well disguised so
you'll have NO idea who we are when we come knocking:)!
Jamie (the cool one)
That's a great idea!� You really ARE the cool one :-)� We will have two�
bowls available, thanks for the candy suggestions.
Of course kids taking the candy could have peanut products on their hands -�
I can see how this could make you crazy!
Vance has HAD IT...now it's getting ugly!
Wow! I think that they get the point. I too was a little surprised by the initial letter. But let's all move on and wish everyone a safe and fun holiday. Here is a link to the website for the choose civility
campaign in Howard county. Let's all choose it!!!�
