What Really Happens At Naptime

  • Ella - When mummy pushes the buggy and sounds muffled talking it’s because she is eating a sneaky chocolate bar ! When mummy says look at that dinosaur flying past she popped a cookie in her mouth while your head was turned. Oh yes three kids in and I’ve perfected sneaky eating.ReplyCancel

  • Malia - My kids are 11 & 6 and I still find ways to this. It’s not at naptime anymore but I may have some stashes in various locations in the house…ReplyCancel

  • mrshiggison - I’m loving this little series you’re doing here:) Keep it up, cause it cracks me up!ReplyCancel

  • Vi Nguyen - I agree with Mrs Higgison, I love this new series you’re doing, so you! You make me smile Jill 🙂ReplyCancel

  • becca @ just one more trip - oh, yes, the things we do that our children know nothing about. we do this exact same thing but at bedtime. with ice cream.ReplyCancel

  • Jill - Thanks y’all! This is part of new “Mommy Truths” category, and I’m having a little too much fun with it.ReplyCancel

  • MomEinstein - And here I thought it was code for “Mommy needs time to play around on the computer.” All this time I could have been eating COOKIES?!?!ReplyCancel

    • Jill - Oh, that, too! Be sure, I was stuffing my face with Oreos WHILE playing on the computer. I am very talented like that. Also? My computer is filthy.ReplyCancel

  • Krista from The Playdate Crashers - So true! If I have something particularly yummy in the house, my children will never see it.ReplyCancel

  • kyfirewife - OMGoodness! it’s funny ’cause it’s true!ReplyCancel

  • Susan - I may have peed a little laughing at this. My three year old doesn’t yet recognize the sound of the oreos being opened, so I can still stealthily sneak a whole one in my mouth and claim I’m eating a “mommy snack”. I wonder when she’ll figure out what’s been going on.ReplyCancel

  • Chelsey The Paper Mama - Ha ha! The truth!ReplyCancel

  • geekbabe - This also works with husbands, lol, I’ve bee known to hide snacks in places that men & teenagers will seldom look, cookies are always safe in the laundry room or the dish washerReplyCancel

  • OHN - My kids -all male–are 56, 23,21and 16 (okay, technically the 56 y/o is my husband but he never matured past the age of 14) and I STILL hide things. Its a matter of survival. I would kill any one of them if they ate the last cookie when I was having a craving and there were no goodies to be found.ReplyCancel

  • Sarah M - I’m so glad I’m not the only one who does this! My 2 year old didn’t nap the other day so I tricked her by putting chocolate ice cream in my coffee cup instead of a bowl. She just kept asking, “is that coffee, Mama?” I think she may be on to me.ReplyCancel

  • Angie - Ha! I LOVE this!!!ReplyCancel

  • Danielle Hull - And if a certain 2 year olld finds me eating from my secret stash, and I bribe him with a bit, he then finds it necessary to go invite everyone to have some. So generous of him. Though he is totally missing the point ;).ReplyCancel
