A stunning lack of willpower, luckily the three-year-old was there

This morning, I ate so many peanut M&Ms that I skipped lunch and wasn't even hungry again until about 6pm. And then, what did I really want to eat instead of the pork and snap peas I'd made the girls? More peanut M&Ms! Luckily I got a grip, closed up the huge bag, handed it to little Ree, and asked her to hide it somewhere that I wouldn't find it. And she did. I'm not sure what cracked me up more: that she didn't ask any questions and just understood what needed to be done, or that she didn't even consider snitching an M&M out of the bag and eating it herself while she performed her important duty. Funny kid. Now I just wonder where she hid them...

  3. Question is will you be able to find it again when you need it?

  5. OD on peanut M&Ms - what a way to go.

    Don't be surprised if your R&R are less hungry than normal the next few days...

  6. I know your chocolate sniffer and I'm sure you can find them friend! It's a hoot that she didn't ask any questions and just did what she could to help out. Now....if you bribe her with candy I'm sure they can be returned in time for mommy's breakfast!

  7. That is great!!! I wish my kids would hide the peanut butter M and M from me. They just tell me I have thunder thighs. That doesn't make me stop, it makes me eat more.

  9. You didn't specifically ask for information about other ways not to eat the peanut M&Ms, so I won't offer any, but there are a bunch of good possibilities if you're interested.

    Regardless, top marks for creativity and involving the family!

  10. That is cracking me up that she didn't ask any questions, just immediately took them and hid them!!

    But, I do hope they were hidden somewhere cool-ish so that they don't melt all over the place in a few weeks when you find them!! :)
