Desperately in need of some creative ways to say Thank You, but No Thank You. Wonderfully generous people have already started plying my kids with candy-chocolate eggs for Easter.
Folks who asked us in advance have been told, yes by all means get them an egg, but please make sure it is dark chocolate (preferably minimum 75% cocoa solids), and avoid ones with sweets inside.
Others, who don't understand that "milk chocolate" is over 60% sugar don't realise that TJ can't have it. And we treat both children the same, so Roo won't be getting them either. Today 2 lovely looking iced eggs were given to the kids at playgroup with nearly 70% sugar.
What can I say? Can I creatively refuse these gifts? Or do I just smile, and then remove them from the kids, put them in a bag and then dispose of them later?
We're going to the in-laws church Easter Sunday. Last time we were there that day, I remember seeing all the kids leaving with carrier bags full of candy and milk-chocolate.
