HANDS OFF MY FOOD

I promise, we do feed our boys. Despite what they might tell you, we are not starving them to death. Occasionally when they do buy something of their own, they have to protect it from getting eaten by their hungry brothers. Hence the note (a common sight around the Morgan house)…


At least the kid is willing to share with his mother.

    Having grown up in a large family, and being oldest and buying stuff I understand. Just curious, did he give Lea permission because he knew she wouldn’t eat it? I can see how the sweet roll would be tempting.

    Guys and their food…
    I remember when Cody and I were in college he would bring his food over and hide it at my apartment. He lived with 3 other guys and they were always taking each others food. Our kids haven’t hit this spot yet but I am sure it is coming. We do hide the oreos on the top shelf or we would never get any.

    my parents always told us that if we bought a treat and brought it home we better bring enough for everyone, or else scarf it down before we get home.

    Lets see a show of hands for scarf!!!

    i love the “except Mom” part that is sooo sweet!!

    That sign on that food would mean nothing in the house in which I grew up! But it’s always a good strategy to protect Mom!

    Ha! That reminds me of my college days, too! I hope Taylor’s brothers are better at honoring those little notes than we were back in those days.

    Leaving a note like that in a house full of poor college students was only asking for the food to get eaten up!

    Good luck, Taylor!

  7. bikegirl says:

    I was a pretty picky eater growing up so when Mom found a food I liked she would hide it for me so my brother wouldn’t eat it all before I got around to wanting some of it.

    Of course a note like that would just mean my brother would eat it and blame the missing food on Mom who had permission to eat it.

    Since when do notes stop dudes from eating? In my experience, a note is a target. If said note is written on a napkin, most guys will eat the marked food and use the written upon napkin to wipe their mouths, just to add insult. Might I suggest a bike chain and a padlock…..

    That is probably the funniest thing I have ever seen…I loved it…and I can also relate…my dad used to meet us at the door after halloween and eat all our snickers…and the same thing with Easter…the sad thing is…he does the same things with his grandkids….so this year I bought him his OWN sack of snickers…thanks for sharing…I needed the laugh…steph

    Just got back in after being gone most of the day. Enjoyed reading the comments.

    Is this a good time to confess that I did sneak a bite or two out of it. :)

    I think you need to admit to your son you ate some of HIS food. How rude!
