My mom had this saying (which she’d usually bring out right after we’d bring home bucket loads of candy from trick or treating on Halloween): Everything in moderation. She’d also bring out one jar for each of us, and tell us that we could only keep the candy that we could fit in the jar. Everything else had to be packaged and wrapped for the Christmas carolers. So you can imagine how much I hated that saying. Everything in moderation–ick! How can there be moderation for candy?
