Anyone that wants to argue that certain types of food doesn't play a part in behaviors are more than welcome to come spend the night at our home after Brian sneaks into the Easter candy bowl and devours 20 pieces of bubblegum, one box of nerds, and two lollipops.
Brian was up from about 11:30 pm until about 3:30 am. Loud, silly, and as crazy as can be.
We haven't had that type of sleeping problems in FOREVER. In fact, I have been bragging about how well sleep has been.
The rest of the candy was thrown away. I cherish my sleep much more than giving my "deprived" children their holiday candy.
