I have a malteaster bunny that I am wanting to scoff down but don't want DS to have any biggrin.gif
I have on occasion stuck my head in the pantry and scoffed something scrumptious - have you?

It's the best part of being a grown up.

I use to have to hide to eat my breakfast!! Even though there's was the same they still wanted mine. Thankfully they're slightly older now so it's not so bad.

Yes, frequently. With 4 kids and a husband to share with, some things need to be scoffed in secret so I can get any myself.

Edited to add : The car is a great place, but usually get busted when DH finds all the wrappers in the door console. He also knows that I make excuses to duck down the street to pick up items and sneak a treat  laugh.gif

Yep!  Now that they are 3 they are on to my every move so it is even more challenging now.

No but I do save stuff until they are in bed.

F*ck yeah. I do most of my eating when they are asleep. I still fantasise that I will be able to teach them healthy food habits while maintaining my unhealthy food habits in secret...

Sucks when you have a mouthful of M&Ms though and then they call you and you have to answer with your mouth full and then they say what are you eating and then I fluff about and then they smell chocolate on my breath... makes me feel like an errant teenager!

Yes but only hide from my 2 year old because he loves to eat and gets upset if i don't share, he is autistic.

My other kids, i'm mean and just say no.

Yes I have done this. I hate eating in front of anyone who does not have their own food.

DH and I have our treats at night when the kids are tucked up in bed.  
I could not possibly enjoy our yums when I have three sets of eyes focused on what I am supposed to be enjoying.

This is totally me. I'm always making sure she has such healthy treats while I hide in the pantry, eating chocolate...

Like the piece of cake I sneakily smashed into my mouth last night when DS was eating his chicken salad?  No, of course not....ph34r.gif

Uh, yeah. It's the only way I get to eat. If I don't hide, I don't eat.

This is completely and utterly possible. If I ate as healthily as my kids, I would be 10kgs lighter. Instead I give them a fruit platter and hide in the pantry eating chocolates and biscuits. ph34r.gif

I've never done it, but there is ample evidence around my house that DH and DD do. Chocolate wrappers stuffed behind cushions etc.

DS is like me and doesn't lust for sneaky snacks. He is awesome at self limiting his food intake.

I don't mind sharing and truthfully I feel like they do me a favour if they ask for something I am eating. Usually I don't really need it.  biggrin.gif

For sure, I do or I wait to splurge when I put them to bed at nights.

Since I live on chocolate and thats bad for DD so she cant biggrin.gif
I have many secret stashes around the house.
They get visited often

Forgot to mention TURKISH DELIGHT CAKE????
Where do you aquire such a thing
This is a matter of life and death that I know biggrin.gif

#23 bearmum

Posted 15 January 2013 - 11:21 AM

Yes. Because sometimes just once in a while, just occasionally, I want to eat ALL of what I feel like. Not most of it. Not a lot of it minus a cute little 2 year old bite mark. Not a bit for me, a bit for DS, a bit for DD but ALL of it.

So sometimes I hide while I eat it original.gif and it is yum!

Oh my God Yes.

Also my youngest got quite a big supply of chocolate treats from Santa considering he is too little for chocolates...

I also need to know where this turkish delight cake comes from.
