I feel so ashamed. I bought a box of chocolates for our midwives and on a moment of weakness during the 4th bloody night feed I cracked into themand now they are finished
blush The box was massive, it was like a werewolf movie feeding frenzie.

Ah, just replace them. Who hasn't done something similar with Christmas chocolates? blush

There will be many more moments like this. Embrace it, OP.

Crikey YANBU. When DD was a newborn and on a feeding frenzy and not sleeping a wink all chocolate and anything else within reach was fair game. Buy more chocolate and a bag of nuts for yourself and remember to drink loads of water.

You are a saint lasting so long! This is just standard chocolate behaviour.

You had to test them first!
It'd be terrible to accidentally give away sub-standard choccies!

Yes it's the same as the Christmas chocolates of shame, I buy an extra box now, it saves time energy and that guilty feeling.
Congratulations btw thanks

Don't even give it another thought op.

Oh, and congratulations on your lovely newborn!

My parents once had to replace the grandchildren's chocolate Santas about 3 times during December.

This really made me smile, I'm sure your midwife would forgive you.

Congratulations on your lovely new baby flowers

Right, I'll take the ashes off my head and embrace the slightly sicky feeling smile I really did feel like that day
after the full moon scene when the werewolf is back in human form and wondering who he ate.

I'm at home and the chocolates were lovely, Toasty. The midwives were fantastic so at least now I know I am gifting them something worthy of their fabulousness smile I'll waddle up to the shops and buy more, I can count it as physio.
