Default Am I a bad mummy?

Well... went to Tesco Express this morning, for a few bits -milk etc. While there I spotted a real bargain - large tubes of sweets etc. buy 2 for £2.00.
Got home, felt a bit peckish and started on the smarties, almost without thinking. Well, she's got the white chocolate buttons to herself and I'm going to the gym 3 x a week so can afford a few smarties... what do you think???!!! Am I a mean mummy or does anyone else do that kind of thing? Can chocolate ever really be safe in the same house as a chocolate crazed sheila?

Larissa,
I thought this was part of being a mother, testing the goodies to make sure they're safe, tasty, have no nasty effects etc.
You are just protecting your children, I think its a very selfless act to force yourself to sample the goods!

reminds me of the jaffa cake ad, with the teacher eating all the jaffas whilst the children look on with dismay - thats I suppose was a bit cruel, were your children watching?

anyway I do believe that tescos is going to be open between now & xmas so you can always get some more

Should try be brought up with parents owning a chocolate shop - mmmmmmmm

You are not a bad mummy at all - you are looking after their teeth!

I keep all the sweets and chocolate bars etc, in my study desk, (out of bounds) keeping them safe so that I can ration them for health reasons , its not my fault if she forgets we bought them is it ? and when she remembers, that they have mysteriously dissapeared.

Gosh,

No way are you a bad mother.
I bought my 2 sons a selection box each, however got a bit peckish the other night and ate one!!
Then I realized that I must always treat them equal, that meant I couldnt just give one of them a box.
\the result, yep you guessed it. I ate the other one.
So none of them get a selection box.

To me that is being a good mother, treting them fairly.

Hey Larissa

It's in the job description

" All mummies have the right to test out all foodstuffs (especially choccies) before anyone else gets to them.

Kepp it up you're doing a fine job!!!

It's me again

just remembered some years back I bought hubby an easter egg but it was broken. I thought "I can't give my beloved an egg in this condition" so I promptly ate it....

I also forgot to buy him a replacement....You ought to have seen his face when I had to explain what had happened. I had to tell him it was a sign of my true undying love for him thtat I could not give him an egg that was not up to the quality he would expect and tht he deserved....

all this talk of chocolate has reminded me that I have opened my advent calendar for a few days.

Just got it from the other room..... and the last choco date was 9th, that means I have 7 bits of chocolate to eat, excuse me for a while
