Pop tarts in the pantry

I don’t normally buy pop tarts they are full of questionable chemicals and products which I try to avoid feeding my children.  I was grocery shopping a few weeks ago with Keith who asked for pop tarts, they were not on sale and I did not have a coupon so I did not purchase them at that time.  Last week however they were on sale and I had a coupon so I decided I would treat my family to some pop tarts, and honestly the yum of the brown sugar and cinnamon ones are oh so good!  I have let the kids have 1 a day, not 1 pkg of 2 but 1 individual pop tart.  Today C was home early, it is exam schedule at school for high schoolers so he is done at 11 (2 core class exams a day for 4 days… glad it is him not me).  Anyway, he made his lunch and came to join me in the family room to watch a little tv and visit before going back into the hole to study more for his Latin exam.  We were talking and realized that the baby had not come back to the family room, we went looking for her.  I found the sneaky little girl in the pantry eating the other pop tart in C’s pkg.  She was standing close as she could to the corner and eating it.  When I came upon her she looked guilty, I guess I have a closet eater (or at least a pantry eater.)  But I do know I need to move the snacks to a higher shelf where she cannot see or reach them.I’m off to move the snacks now.

    Hope you don’t mind me commenting on half the posts here! Brown sugar cinnamon (iced of course) are by far the best. The only time pop tarts have ever been in our house is when I was pregnant. I craved those blasted things.
