Am I the only selfish mom?....

I keep candy "stashed" for when I am stressed and pull it out when the kiddos go to bed. Should they come out I quickly hide it again (even with mouthful :)) and when asked........i lie and say i don't have nuttin....

  • I'm worse than that, I hide snacks/ sweets from my hubby as well as my daughter. If they know we have things, they disappear in minutes. Last Easter, I bought four bags of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs (my fav) and hid them. I ate them for months and hubby didn't find them until there were a few left in the last bag. lol

  • i do! but i dont feel guilty or ashamed, i feel like i am in on one of the big mommy secrets, me and my mom laugh about it now because she used to do the same things and every once in a while i would find the wrapper in the trash, i figure me and my girls can laugh about mommy secrets like these when we are older (oh right now i have a stash of ghiradelli squares hiden with some cadbury eggs thrown in there :)

  • Mine knows I have a candy stash that I eat when I feel like it. He gets his own sweets at times.
