Sugar Rush

At Casa Laura this is the look we associate with too much sugar ...



... wide eyed and crazy with a hint of 4 year old charm

I have seen that look both in my children AND in the mirror!

I like that. She's kind of got that Jack Nicholson as The Joker thing going on.

Ha! That looks oddly familiar. I think I've seen the same expression on a few little people here.

We get that look too - but it's usually from a child climbing the curtains or hanging off a light fitting. My kids don't handle sugar very well!

Did you know that a study has shown that sugar makes absolutely no difference to children's behaviour, and that it is us parents that simply imagine its impact on our children? I saw it on the Channel 4 news. Not sure if I believe it though. I might Google it and write a blog on it!

I saw that too.

I think its more the additives that she can't handle than the sugar because it definitely makes a difference to both her behaviour and then her sleep, to the point that she can't have medicines with colourings in them.

Ahhhh, there's definitely more than a hint, hee hee. :D
