Apples, Blisters and Monopoly

So I didn't want to do the same ol' heart sugar cookies or cupcakes for Valentine's day so we opted for Candied Apples. They were a lot easier than I thought but I WILL tell you one thing...300 degree corn syrup/water/sugar burns when it falls and hardens on your finger. Blistered instantly. Jon is in love with the apples and can't wait to bring them to school.

Is it wrong that I play Disney Monopoly with Jon and Braden and love to kick their butt? Shouldn't I, as their role model/mom let them win or at least cushion the blow...nope, I feel the need to wipe the floor with them everytime.
