How many of you get ready to go to bed or get the kids to bed and then realize that you are hungry because you didn't actually eat dinner yourself?

This used to happen to me when my kids were younger because I usually didn't care for what they wanted for dinner or I wasn't hungry when they were. Now it is a matter of whether or not we get to eat together at all with sports and everything going on. But some evenings I do realize that I am hungrier than what I probably should be.

  • I do this all the time. Lol! My kids are 2 and 5 months and by the time I remember to eat I'm starving. I'm usually feeding the baby at the dinner table while my 2 year old eats so we still kind of eat as a family. =P

  • Usually I will cook dinner and we will all eat together. but we had a baseball practice tonight so I had to make quick things for the kids and didnt eat myself cause i was getting them ready. So yeah after we got home and i put them to bed i was starving.

  • Sometimes. Or DH will lay next to me and say are you hungry, then we do a fast food run, or I sit on the edge of the bed with a sani or a bowl of cereal.

  • we always eat dinner together, but i usually have a snack after they go to bed for the sheer joy of eating something without having to share it with 3 other people!
