Treats make life better

This morning as my child was fighting his morning nap, after trying to get those yawns to turn into a snooze for nearly an hour, I walked to the kitchen, opened the fridge, and enjoyed a nice helping of a dessert I had made the night before. As I was indulging in some deliciousness, yes, I AM an emotional eater, and it tastes good, I thought to myself, how have I not gained 100 pounds since my child was born?!?!? I'm pretty sure every morning I tell myself I can hold off having any treat until at least mid-afternoon...today I said I could make it until dinner time, but who am I kidding? With my child, and the general unfolding of events around here, I'm lucky if I make it past 10. Today was 9:45am, so I know if nothing else, it's going to be a good delicious day.

LOL! This is totally me too! My only problem is I can't eat dairy, which is pretty much all dessert! So I have a spoon full of peanut butter several times a day to get me through my day!

Nursing is a magical thing :) I was thinnest the year I nursed lily. Once I stopped i gained 5 lbs and was back to my normal weight. Noah's aversion to nursing through a kink in my post-baby all you can eat diet :)

You haven't gained because you're constantly weight lifting - but he's an adorable weight to lift! Can hardly wait for you to bring him to his grandparent's home.
