i sleep during the day-- work at night.... DF "watches" DS during the day so i can get my sleep. what happens during that day? this is the SECOND TIME i woke up in a week to having the ENTIRE package of Oreo cookies gone-- eaten just by DS, no one else. the entire package. he doesnt really eat anything else during the day-- sometimes cereal.
what am i gonna do!? i'm not the one who buys the damn cookies either. its so frustrating. DS is 5 years old and weighs 50 lbs. and now, you can tell he has fat/chub on him.... but he's not gonna get healthy by eating cookies all day, every day.
i'm really debating on just quitting the job so i can keep an eye on him- and force DF to work. (i make $14/hr-- with bills, its not enough for childcare, but we are living comfy... compared to the $8/hr that DF would be lucky to make)
what am i gonna do!? i dont want DS to end up fat like me (i'm 210, trying to lose it but i have HUGE medical issues thats making it hard-- plus working at a sit down job. ugh) basically, DS is gonna end up with high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes and probably cancer. he already has a kidney disease through genetics. i want to PROLONG his life-- not kill him faster by feeding him crap food (not like i'd make some amazing, made from scratch food... but it'd beat the 3 cookie meals he's currently eating!)
i dont know if i should punish DS for getting in the cupboard (he knows not to, unless he goes for cereal) or punish DF for basically making DS go into the cupboard since HE'S not preparing meals!

Just because you do not buy the cookies does not mean you can't throw them away. Or tell your SO to stop letting you son eat junk food.
