Horrible Thief

Well,

ages ago,

among other times,

I bought my girlie a chocolate bar, and advised her to ration it.









and believe it or not, she actually DID.



That thing sat on the counter for what felt like FOREVER.






Tormenting me.

Singing its sweet, chocolatey,

melt-in-your-mouth

siren song.







And you know EXACTLY what it would taste like,

so you have chocolate-devouring FANTASIES.


But then one day...

when there are only THREE SQUARES LEFT...






you CONVINCE yourself that OBVIOUSLY the kid forgot about them.

And then you DECIDE that you have every  right to eat it.

What the hell?  Who does all the work around here?
Who makes the dinners and lunches and snacks?
Who makes sure everyone has clean underpants all the time?

And anyways...looks like she forgot about those last three squares.


So you GOBBLE THEM UP!



And then, a day later...







Holy crap.  What have you done?!?


You tell the kid YOU ATE HER CHOCOLATE.








She CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!



And even worse:





SHE'S HEARTBROKEN!



But then, she's ANGRY


She gives you a GOOD lecture, in a very stern tone.








And then she never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever lets you forget it, forever after.


Every time a new piece of chocolate comes into the house, she makes sure you remember.








Guess you learned your lesson!



Whoo! That was boring.

  2. Never, ever in parent speak means "Until next time when you torture your mother by leaving your damn candy/ice cream/cupcake laying around!" You are justified, Dirty Thief.

  5. I was/am a greedy bitch so my mum never got a chance to eat my chocolate, though she has done in recent years. Love all these drawings, they're fantastic. Love your bossy daughter, she'll be reminding you of it FOREVER xxx

  6. Too funny. Kids do seem to do that, though... leave it there, almost intentionally taunting you. They're smart little people, I tell ya. Not as innocent as they look!

  8. i've done this too. kids have very long memories about such things. i tried to use the excuse of "you left it there, so i thought you were done with it." but it didn't fly. now the girl knows to keep her food out of my sight where it's safe.

    1. why do we do it? Temptation, I guess. Is it also because we hardly ever buy ourselves any treats???

      Delete
    2. i think that's it. we don't allow ourselves enough treats.

    3. DEFINITELY. I emphatically agree with that >:(

  11. Hubby puts his chocolate in the freezer... It's all a conspiracy, because I don't like it frozen.. otherwise pretty much any chocolate in the fridge is mine.

  13. Ooo you little thief! My sons are still too young to recall exactly what's in their treat cupboard. Clearly I need to hone my skills before they get savvy ...

    1. just you wait...they will!!! They won't remember where they put their favourite toy, but they will have a mental inventory of treats!
