Wanna know some breaking news from my household?
The girl child accidentally found my chocolate and candy stash I hid at the beginning of lock-down. Mainly from the teenager.
This has been an ongoing thing, hiding and rationing and debating and arguing and negotiating about junky snacks.
Note: I still have the upper hand, at least for the moment. 😉
Backtracking a bit: when this whole shelter-in-place began, I looked for a few hiding spots to manage the food stash. Not just the snacks but also the non-perishables.
But especially the chocolate. I wrote about it here.
It didn’t take long for the looting to begin. I ran out of hiding spots in my bedroom within the first week. Also, my kid is not queasy; he has no qualms digging in my underwear drawer or the back part of my closet where I store tampon boxes. All he sees is the potential of finding food.
Frankly, I’m a little surprised how long I managed to outsmart him. I mean, here we are in mid May and he’s still sneaking into my bedroom every single day to look for chocolate.
But now, his sister knows where it is.
The interesting thing is, she told me about her accidental discovery.
Would the boy have done the same? I suspect he would have after he cleared out the containers…mainly to boast that he outsmarted me. 😃
The girl said she won’t say anything and for now, I choose to believe her.
But I am in the process of looking for a new spot. I have a weird feeling this rationing thing is going to implode shortly.
