Sugar High

According to research, sugar won't make your children hyper. According to mothers everywhere, (and Valentine's Day is a nice experiment), the clinical evidence is that sugar makes children babbling baboons. The two kids came home from school absolutely bonzo. Both were chattering over each other at break-neck speed. Neither completed a thought all the way up to the point they put their buzzing head on the pillow to try to sleep.

Perhaps they were high on the love of twenty-five Valentines--the excitement of being showered with candy and kind words. Or, it could have been the sugar cookies, Tootsie Rolls, Skittles and various and sundry sweet nothings they poured down their gullets today.

I vote for the latter.
