Confessions of a Slacker

Somehow in my effort to help my family eat healthy, a king size Milky Way bar made it's way into my fridge. I didn't buy it, so I knew it must be for one of the kids. Maybe a reward for something.
But there it was, staring me in the face every time I opened the fridge. I did what any good mother would do. I got rid of it. After all, I couldn't have my kids eating that. How would that help them? How could they break bad habits and get healthy with that chocolate temptation right there in the fridge.

So, I carefully took the offending bar upstairs and unwrapped its delicious chocolateness. Then I went back down stairs. I figured if I had to climb the stairs to eat the candy bar, it wouldn't be so bad, right? Suddenly I was going upstairs more than ever and quickly polished off the treat.

As it turns out, it was actually part of S's homework. Yeah -- I ate my sons homework.

Okay, I'm laughing out loud! You gotta save your kids right? You're so funny--and I love that you took it up the stairs!

I want to know whether you took the picture of the wrapper before or after you ate it? If it was before, in anticipation of eating it, that is really scary.
