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. Reply Malia October 12, 2011 - 11:53 am 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… Reply mrshiggison October 12, 2011 - 12:01 pm I’m loving this little series you’re doing here:) Keep it up, cause it cracks me up! Reply Vi Nguyen October 12, 2011 - 12:21 pm I agree with Mrs Higgison, I love this new series you’re doing, so you! You make me smile Jill 🙂 Reply becca @ just one more trip October 12, 2011 - 12:24 pm oh, yes, the things we do that our children know nothing about. we do this exact same thing but at bedtime. with ice cream. Reply Jill October 12, 2011 - 1:57 pm Thanks y’all! This is part of new “Mommy Truths” category, and I’m having a little too much fun with it. Reply MomEinstein October 12, 2011 - 1:58 pm 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?!?! Reply Jill October 12, 2011 - 2:02 pm 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. Reply Krista from The Playdate Crashers October 12, 2011 - 2:05 pm So true! If I have something particularly yummy in the house, my children will never see it. Reply kyfirewife October 12, 2011 - 2:07 pm OMGoodness! it’s funny ’cause it’s true! Reply Susan October 12, 2011 - 2:28 pm 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. Reply Chelsey The Paper Mama October 12, 2011 - 2:38 pm Ha ha! The truth! Reply geekbabe October 12, 2011 - 5:09 pm 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 washer Reply OHN October 13, 2011 - 7:30 am 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. Reply Sarah M October 14, 2011 - 4:55 pm 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. Reply Angie October 19, 2011 - 10:44 pm Ha! I LOVE this!!! Reply Danielle Hull August 29, 2013 - 9:14 pm 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 ;). Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
