He has been to 3 parties this weekend, £30 in presents, entire weekend planned around these events, DD feels left out so further £10 on compensation present, both being little sods due to too much sugar, dancing, tantrums etc. Poured wine, no nibbles - I ATE the cake...AIBU (f-ing no!)

That depends on if your DS actually wanted his cake?

No - it doesn't keep overnight well that's my story and I'm sticking to it

Hope it was not pumpkin pie. Because that would be, you know, cannibalism.

Depends if one of the other bits can be cut in half and therefore do two lunchboxes so he doesn't notice grin

And I reckon YANBU - you need all the help you can get to deal with sugar-crazed children at 9pm grin

Was it a bit of the cake covered in birthday child candle blowing spit? grin

Put them both to bed immediately after baby went to sleep 18:15, could no longer cope... Next week 1/2 term so no lunchboxes thank god. He forgot about cake, I forgot about spit FFS [vial]

I am ashamed to admit that I frequently do this.

By the time we get home from a party DS has had plenty of sugary stuff and doesn't need cake. I, on the other hand, having had nothing more than a luke-warm paper cup of coffee do need cake and wine.

DS has never mentioned the birthday cake the next day.

I do this a lot......not just with cake but with sweets they have forgotten about!!

I always eat the birthday cake blush.

In my defence, my children do not actually like birthday cake whilst I bloody love it.

My payment for taking them / enduring the party.

I've often eaten cake and sweets from DD's party bags.
I always ask first.

You are SAVING the Dc from having to eat chemicals and sugar.
You are a GOOD MOTHER

I once saw DW swipe a premium-brand choc bar from DD's party bag with the comment "she won't appreciate it"

My face was exactly like hmm

KittyFane Sun 23-Oct-11 22:34:56

As norks said - mrheadless, your DW was being a good mum grin

You are stupid and strange if you DON'T eat the cake from party bags.
