Thinking up excuses as to why you can steal from a 13 month old? Very low.

Do it! I ate some of my kids' and they are 2 and 4
blush. Chocolate is bad for children, I did them a favour. Selfless, I am.

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 19:52:52

Well, she got a thorntons egg, some lindt and this cadbury chicken that now has no head I figured I was saving her from it, the good mother that I am

eat if I tell her in the morning does that make the stealing ok?

I always eat my kids' Easter eggs. I leave some but they get too many anyway. Am doing them a favour. And 13 month olds don't need choc.

Go for it. My DS is 8 mo and DH's aunt bought him a white chocolate thorntons Easter egg - I are because, well, because I wanted to and thorntons chocolate would be wasted on him grin

No... you are far from U! You're a responsible Mum, making sure she doesn't eat too much chocolate!! (just munched the last of 13month old DS's choccy egggrin )

mrspolkadotty Wed 23-Apr-14 19:56:51

Sat here just cracking open a Cadburys buttons egg of DD2's (one of hundreds it seems). No guilt needed imo!

Enjoy grin

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 19:57:51

Well I did wonder why they (ils) bought her chocolate, I mean a bag of buttons would last for weeks. I asked them not to, I mean she doesnt have any concept of easter anyway, I didnt buy her anything at all!

Now I know never say dont buy chocolate, because then I wouldnt have any!!!!

hotcrosshunny Wed 23-Apr-14 19:58:34

YANBU although your period is irrelevant. It's chocolate, she's a baby!

MaryWestmacott Wed 23-Apr-14 19:59:41

DD is 10 months, I'm just polishing off the second of hers. (why buy a 10 month old chocolate eggs?)

I wouldn't let a 10 month old eat chocolate so it would be a waste if I didn't eat it. You aren't stealing it, you are taking the sensible decision that your DD is too young for chocolate eggs - so rather than just bin them (wasteful, fills landfil sites) you are eating them (the environmentally friendly option).

Oh yes, you are a very good mother. Get that halo polished and finish off the rest.

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 20:00:02

Wondering, I dont mind, I will be a toxic parent if it means I can eat this cadbury chicken!!! Its nice for them to have something to tell the therapist anyway

Foxsticks Wed 23-Apr-14 20:00:21

I ate my two year olds Lindt bunny on the basis that good chocolate would be wasted on her it was bad for her. Not so much stealing as good parenting I reckon.

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 20:03:03

Mary, that made me laugh!
Shes has had probably 2 pieces of chocolate in her life (all this easter when despite me asking, they gave her a small chocolate egg and a profiterole!!!!! That is a whole other story, and I have only just stopped being upset about it.) Actually saying that makes me feel even better about eating it-lindt bunny anyone?

wonderingsoul Wed 23-Apr-14 20:04:18

jean grin good thinking!

though i have to ask why on earth you havnt got a milky cow to?

fox you can eat my lindt... i hate the stuff.. i'll swap you a bunny for a kinderegg.

*wondering if my love for kindereggs shows my maturity to the fullest hmm

phalanges Wed 23-Apr-14 20:06:30

I ate all of my dcs chocolate for years, until they were aware of it.

2rebecca Wed 23-Apr-14 20:06:45

I wouldn't do it and do wonder why so many women don't just go and buy their own chocolate instead of stealing their kids. Are you all pretending to be on diets of something? My husband and I buy each other chocolate eggs, I have been known to select my own egg and give it to him to give to him as I know they'll have ran out by the time he gets round to going to the shop. Get your own chocolate, leave the kids' stuff alone.

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 20:07:10

That reminds me, there is one in the cupboard in the kitchen- petes sake I cant eat that much chocolate let alone baby!!!

Wait, if there are kinder eggs going, I want in! I can swap thorntons, and lindt, im not so keen on them either.

OhMrGove Wed 23-Apr-14 20:09:54

I'm sorry to shit on your, err, nest, but I think YABU.

That is your daughter's. Her property. It is theft. It wasn't even bought by you to give to her.

Tantamount to child abuse and teaching her that stealing is okay all at once.

Sheesh.

grin obvs joking. And jealous. Snaffle it.

wonderingsoul Wed 23-Apr-14 20:10:03

bingo wink

i do have my own... the dc just like to share... plus i give them the toys from my kinder eggs so its not all doom n gloom for them!

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 20:10:17

2- I actually, contrary to popular belief, only ever fancy chocolate before a period, and can function without it. I fancied it and have eaten it. My husband is dairy free and we dont buy each other eggs. if I fancy chocolate ill buy it, but husband is out, and I am home alone with easter chocolate and a baby in bed.

jeanmiguelfangio Wed 23-Apr-14 20:12:22

Ohmrgove - I know I am a bloody awful mother, lord knows how she has coped this last year- wow, abuse and stealing, I managed 2 in one, impressive.
passes gove some chocolate to buy her off ringing social services

Foxsticks Wed 23-Apr-14 20:17:02

Why would you think we were all pretending to be on diets 2rebecca? I did get my own egg - a Leonidas one <boasts> I choose to nick my daughters to for the thrill of it, and because I she's only two and was given a ridiculous amount of chocolate that she doesn't need.

That sounds like I pretty good trade wonder I don't know if I'd want to give up the toy though.

ForTheLoveOfSocks Wed 23-Apr-14 20:18:26

YADNBU!

I've eaten some of DD1's and all of DD2's.

I am BF DD2, so she will get the choc through me that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it grin
