Do you feel guilty when you steal and eat your child's snacks?

I say this with a mouth full of animal crackers...I actually do feel guilty!

  • I think there are two kinds of people - the kind that eat the child's food and the kind that gives the child the food off their own plate if the child is still hungry (even if you are hungry). I'm the kind that goes hungry for my kids and now my grandson. My son eats the food I've bought or I am saving for my grandson (his nephew). It makes me so mad. I'll label it or hide it. Then I'll be watching my grandson, not have a car, and no food for my toddler grandson. He has many food allergies and can't eat just anything and he is underweight and must eat.

  • The snacks I buy are for the entire family, not just my kids.

  • Heck no, they make them soooo good for a reason, their inviting you to eat them......theres nothing wrong with bringing out your inner child! My daughter who will be turning 4 this winter, looks at me and says, told you they are good mommy lol. Besides nowadays they probably make them multi-grain so your doing something good for yourself :)
