Hide the Skinny Cow

I'm hiding something from my adorable daughter. I'm not proud of it but I'm brave enough to own up to it. You see, when we have children we give up our privacy. We find ourselves hiding to do the most basic of human behavior: going to the potty (sorry,  we are in toilet training boot camp), taking a nap, having sex, eating a popsicle.

Have you had the Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffel Bar?  It's heaven on a stick. A decadent popsicle for adults who have to constantly watch their weight for health reasons or because the camera adds 10 pounds. Once you try them, you'll know why I hide. Amelia has tasted them and loves them too, but she has her own popsicles and I already have to share EVERYTHING with her. I know, I sound like a whinny little girl but I'm not sharing. 
What follows is an embarrassing slideshow of my hiding place. The pictures are unflattering  but so is my behavior. Ay Mama!

  • Hahaha, Ana, I'm laughing because I do the same thing! Dylan looooves all my POINTS-friendly treats, and when you are controling your portions EVERY BITE COUNTS! Sharing food has actually been one of the hardest things I've had to learn to do as a mom, as I had always been kind of territorial with my food. It does help keep the calorie count low, though! :-)

  • This is hysterical! I have wandered off to my room before, or even told the kids, oooh, this is a mommy treat, you won't like it. Yucky. Congrats on coming out of the snacking closet!

  • Hilarious! I'm with you ladies! I have hid, told them they wouldn't like whatever the treat is or flat out said "MINE" like I'm 2. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do. And yes, the Skinny Cow truffle bars are amazing!

  • HA!! Mine is my Jenny Craig triple chocolate cheesecake... my 8 year old son loves it... so I hide them in the freezer and eat them when he's not around!! Hey - I only get "x" amount of it per day! :) Thanks for sharing!!!

  • What is with our kids loving the diet stuff? Not fair. Kelley, I'm going to quote you with the yucky, mommy treat thing.

  • Hysterical! Love the pics!
