Many of us parents have observed this post-holiday condition caused by enjoying Halloween just a little too much, but are we aware of the telltale signs?

Here are some things to look for the day after Halloween:

5.  Your neighbor calls because your child is standing on his stoop and begging for “just one more hit of Skittles.”

4. There are dozens of empty Pixie Stix wrappers littering the bedroom floor.

3. He actually utters the words you never thought you’d hear him say:  “I’ve had enough candy.”

2. Your child can’t even remember the last two blocks of Trick-or-Treating.
