I always suspected it, but now I definately know it.
My son went off to day care for the first time yesterday and because he wanst at my heals all day I had my head buried in the pantry...
I can't believe how much I missed him! I haven't had time away from him other than when I worked part time but that doesnt count because I wasnt in my own home. I still had the baby to look after but he can't really come after me and look at what I'm looking at. I think that is why i am so good when Devon is around because as soon as the pantry door is opened he knows and I have to close it quickly before he grabs the flour or breadcrumbs and spreads them all over the floor.
I have been really good lately, only buying 'good' food, I have even stopped giving Devon lollies as treats for his toilet training as I think that is a bad habit I am teaching him (food as a reward). but yesterday I just wanted to (and did) eat anything, sweet, savoury, anything!
Obviously I feel like a big fat hippo today, and I think I have learnt my lesson, keep busy with my hands to stop getting into the cupboard. Either that or get a padlock for the fridge and pantry! (not too keen on that idea!).
Just needed to get that off my chest, thanks guys!
