Not Easier the Second Time Around

Turns out it's not any easier to watch my second baby get his shots then it was to watch my first baby.

Is there any sound in this world that causes a mom's heart to constrict more then the sound of her baby's gut wrenching sobs? I think not.

I need chocolate.

Poor little guy! I hope you did treat yourself...you deserve it after all of that.

I think what is so horrible is the fact they make you help hold them down. Inhumane treatment of mothers! We should be allowed to leave the room and come back when the dirty deed is done and gone!

They didn't make me hold him down this time, but he's small and naive (didn't know what was happening).

I can't eat chocolate, because I'm hoping that cutting diary from my diet will help some breastmilk issues we're having, so I'm trying to make due with a cup of chocolate raspberry tea (the chocolate comes from carob).

It's not the same.

NR has had a REALLY rough afternoon (inconsolable crying jags) though he's finally asleep right now.

Good thing I'm a teetotaler, lol.

I'm posting a recipe today that is easy and made with dark chocolate which is considered healthy. Have lots,I believe that shots are harder on Mommies than babies.

So, do you think people are still forgiving about baby fluff after 4 1/2 years...no, I didn't think so. Good luck with getting back in shape.

Oops, just read your comment. Forget what I said about the Chocolate. Although I believe that Dove dark chocolate is dairy free.

Dark chocolate is ok dairy-wise, but it falls under my "waste of calories"-category of foods.

That means I don't like it enough to waste the calories. I'm strictly a milk chocolate girl.

My main "comfort" food is cheesecake. I can't have that right now either.

Dairy-free sucks, but I guess it's only temporary.
