I've explained to DH that we can't afford to keep feeding his 24 yr old son that lives with us. My 5yr old daughter comes first IMO. In 3 days he's ate 24 slices of cheese, 3 big bags of tortilla chips, 5 two liters of soda, and a 2 lb block of cheese. I'm at the point I hide food from him. He will eat all of her canned foods too.
I now have no cheese for her school lunch. The store is 100 miles away and I can only go once per week.
There is no sense in him being a glutton. Dh says I sound like an evil step mom. I say he needs to get a job and buy his own food.
Am I evil for putting my child first?

Put a lock on the fridge and pantry, tell him to get a job, and until then he can eat when you all eat. All I could think as a read this, is he constipated? I can't imagine eating that much cheese in such a short time! Answer by 2kids2dogs2cats
LOL, all I was thinking about as well. That and the fact that he won't be needing toilet paper any time soon. Damn!
Yeah, skunk smell is a good indicator of pot. Unless you have skunks near your house often. Perhaps you should suggest drug testing in order to receive his block of cheese. If he fails, no cheese and he has to find another place to live.
Honestly though, it seems as though your DH is a bigger problem since he is allowing and enabling his son's behavior by not backing you up. But it sounds like you already know that. Good luck to you in whatever you choose to do.
