Oh I KNOW!!! The other day I had a sandwich and then I got a phone call so I walked away from the sandwich and when I came back, it was GONE!! My four year old stole it and then didn't even eat it all!

Luckily I don't get too much of that. My youngest is too picky, won't even eat his own food much less ask for mine And the older ones know where the kitchen is...although 9 times out of 10 we are all having the same thing.

Oh that makes me soooooo mad!! it's kinda hard to explain to a one year old why she can't have my food. I tell the big ones that it's the babies and they can't have it. I feel so selfish.

I actually hardly ever have that, now that my kids are old enough to reason with, plus they all like plain food, and I am a bit more adventurous in my tastes.

I get this too, but it doesn't bother me because I have created the habit intentionally. It's amazing what a child "hates" until it's on Mommy or Daddy's plate. It's a good way to get my kids to eat stuff they normally won't eat. I just put extra on my plate and that way I get "mine" and they get "theirs". But it's not an every day thing, just when I have something on my plate that they claim they don't like.

Ugh this drives me up the wall- I have to sneak around- especially if I have something sweet!
