The mum was shocked to discover that her sons had found her Easter stash in the booze cupboard and managed to eat all of it!
When Aussie mum of two Afroditi Darwin hid nearly $200 worth of Easter eggs in her booze fridge, she never imagined her boys would find and eat the lot! Afroditi told news.com.au that the boys got out of bed around 4 am and hatched a plan to get access to the hidden Easter chocolate, all while she was asleep and completely oblivious.
Chocolate For Breakfast
Afroditi says that she couldn’t believe that the boys had managed to eat all the chocolate.
“This morning my two lovely boys, aged 3.5 and 2, somehow managed to open the locked alcohol fridge where I had stashed their Easter chocolates,” she wrote.
“They ate about $150-$200 worth of chocolate for breakfast this morning.”
Afroditi admitted that it didn’t take her long to work out how the boys had managed to find her haul.
“They got the step from the toilet, put it on a chair and climbed up to unlock the child lock. They had two solid hours before I woke up.”
The mum of two believes she should not do Easter as the boys have already had more than their fair share of chocolate.
“They’re young,” she said. “Are they really going to know anyway?”
Blame The Bunny
Comments from other mums on the post offered some helpful suggestions.
“Tell them today was Easter and they just won the Easter egg hunt,” one clever mum suggested.
“The start of this post sounded so promising,” joked another. “I was looking forward to a drunken toddler story!”
We definitely think that Afroditi’s story is a timely reminder to find a toddler-proof hiding spot for your Easter hauls this year!
