Mum’s hilarious early Easter disaster
It's never a good idea to share a serious tale on April Fool's Day.
Afroditi Darwin wished she was joking when she detailed her children's chocolate misadventure.
As Easter draws closer, many mums are getting in early on their bunny bonanza.
But what started as a serious reaching out for advice on her predicament became quite the hilarious post for mums on Facebook who could not believe their eyes.
"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," Ms Darwin wrote.
"And they ate about $150-200 worth of chocolate for breakfast this morning.
"Now normally I don't spend even close to that much on things like this and I definitely don't have the money to replace all the eggs they've eaten.
"Is it ok to just not do Easter this year?? They're young, are they really going to know anyway?"
Mums laughed how the children were sneaky ninjas for getting into the stash without her noticing.
Ms Darwin said the incident happened well before they usually woke her up.
"My two-year-old is the size of his 3.5-year-old brother," she said.
"My whole house has to be dead bolted or they escape down the street.
"Recently my eldest has taken to removing the fly screen from his room so he can climb out the window.
"They got the step from the toilet, put it on a chair and climbed up to unlock the child lock. "Mind you, this all started around 4am. They don't normally get up till about 6am, so they had a solid two hrs before I woke up. Normally they will come wake me up to make them breakfast."
Ms Darwin said the expensive haul included higher priced gifts for her housemates.
Mums were quick to offer up their solutions.
"Keep the wrappers and wrap them around kiwifruits and mangoes...tell them they are healthy eggs to make up for all the chocolate they ate," wrote one.
Another said: "Tell them today was Easter and they just won the Easter egg hunt."
One laughed how she thought the story was going to go the other way.
"The start of this post sounded so promising," she said.
"I was looking forward to a 'drunken toddler' story."
The kids just remained drunk on chocolate and were "hell" for their mum for the rest of the day after a belly full of bunnies.
