Mummy.. Share!


I remember the days where I could open up a chocolate bar at anytime, drink a cup of tea to myself, enjoy dinner without little fingers going into it. Those days are now gone. 

Lily has always been one for wanting what ever I was having, but now she is even worse for it. I can't seem to have anything without her wanting some of it, even though she doesn't like what I'm eating most the time. 

Here are 5 things I can no longer enjoy to myself. 

1. Chocolate - Lily knows exactly what this stuff is now and how it tastes so amazing! I really don't like her having too much chocolate but I must admit I am a bit of a chocoholic and crave it a lot. I was really hungry the other day and was trying to sneak a Twix into my mouth without her seeing but though I completely hid it, she somehow knew and was pointing to my mouth making the noise she makes when she wants something. BUSTED and lily gets a small piece of my chocolate. 

2. Pasta with Cheese - So the other day Lily had finished her dinner and I sat down to eat mine. I had pasta bake with tons of grated cheese on it. So Lily comes and sits next to me and suddenly I have fingers in my food and all my cheese is getting stolen from the top of it.  Bye bye cheesy pasta, Hello just pasta. Wow this little lady can eat cheese!

3. Olives - I really love my chopped black olives and now that I have introduced them to Lily there is no going back. She LOVES them. We had a picnic the other day and I did a nice big tub full of them for us to share. Share is a funny word as Lily was quickly eating most of them and I had to try and get some before they were all gone. 




4. Tea and biscuits - Lily doesn't even like tea, but she always wants mine if I'm drinking it. Which means firstly I can never drink it hot as usually she tries to climb all over me to get to it, and then secondly I can never drink it in peace as she is constantly pointing to the cup and making her 'I want' noise until I give in and put the cup to her mouth. She doesn't even drink it but she just wants me to offer it her. As for the biscuits its lucky that my favourite ones are rich tea or malted milk as in the morning when I have my cup of tea. If Lily sees me having one then she must also have one to. I usually snap my biscuit in half and give half to her but the other day the cheeky little monkey decided she wanted both pieces and took both biscuits out of each hand I was holding them in and happily wandered of leaving me sat there with nothing. Note to self, snap biscuit out of little hands reach!

5. Sweet treats like cake or cream - So the other day I decided to treat myself to cake and tea from Patisserie Valerie. Lily was fast asleep in the pram so I thought perfect. I can enjoy this in peace and take a little break. I ordered a lovely fruit tart that came with lots of cream. Just as it was placed on my table and I picked up my fork to start digging in, her little eyes opened and she was awake. It as if she knew she was missing out on something good. The pointing and the 'I want' noise kicks in and she ends up getting some of my cream from my tart. 




I think sharing with our children shows the amount of love we have for them. I doubt I would happily share these 5 things with other people so easily. I do think I will have to start eating my chocolate in the bathroom from now on though haha. 

What do you end up having to share with your little ones?

  3. Can totally relate with this. I would never share the things i share with my kids with other people haha! But i have learnt to hide the things i want to myself and wait until kids are in bed or eat it on a sly haha

  5. Naw this post was so cute, it's the little things like this that people don't think about until they actually have children of their own.

  6. My daughter is a right so and so for sticking her fingers in my dinner too! Doesn't matter what she's had to eat, if it's on my plate she wants it.

  7. I bet that it must be a nightmare to ever have anything nice to yourself haha. I'd definitely be clambering over and stealing food if someone had cake, chocolate or anything cheesy haha x

  10. This made me laugh and brought back memories of Ellie as a toddler, she was exactly the same! I quickly mastered the art of opening chocolate / eating things without a sound lol x

  11. Haha it sounds as though Lily loves everything that you eat. Maybe sneak it in when she is sleeping lol :p

  12. I remember when my little girl was little I used to tell her everything was spicy so she wouldn't eat it haha! She soon developed a love of spicy food and no longer cared if my chocolate was spicy... I tried haha! We now share everything, especially now she's 11 as she takes my make up, haircare and anything else she can get her hands on! xx

  13. Oh she is such a cutie - I have to admit I can't imagine sharing those things with anyone ;) x

  14. Wow, olives are such a strong taste for little ones. Good on her! I find that as children get a bit older they are less likely to want what you are having - Unfortunately that never seems to be the case where chocolate is concerned though!

  20. Mr Squishy alway wants in on the action especially when there is chocolate about and for a 1.5 yr old he is shockingly strong!

  21. Olives are such an acquired taste, I'm still not 100% sure that I actually like them myself - it's amazing that she loves olives so much at such an early age, definitely going to be a foodie!! x
