Oh, You Better Watch Out
Tuesday, 12 December 2006

Maddie’s heading off to meet Santa tomorrow. Well, they’ve actually met once before, but she was only six months old and probably doesn’t remember him. So in an effort to keep Maddie’s upcoming meeting with Santa from devolving into a traumatic, frightful event, we’ve spent the past week or so re-introducing her to the jolly guy, with some interesting results.

What Wondrous Sight Is This?
Monday, 11 December 2006

This weekend we moved one step closer to Christmas Preparedness: we got our tree.

And there’s nothing like having a toddler around to remind you of just how weird the whole “tree in the house” thing actually is.

I don’t know about you, but I spent a lot of my adult childless life listening to people say, “There’s nothing like having a child to show you the true joy of Christmas.” They were trying to say that Christmas just isn’t really fun until you watch a child go through Christmas morning, and I couldn’t help but think how wrong they were. Truly, I had a pretty good time waking up on Christmas morning, walking out to see our heavily-laden tree filled to the brim with gifts, and realizing all those gifts were for either me or my husband.

In short, I was pretty happy not to share.

Detouring to the Slow Lane

Maddie had her 18-month well-baby visit on Wednesday and impressed the doctor with her cool; she kept a wary eye on the doctor the whole time, but didn’t start crying until it was shot time.

Ah, yes, did I mention the shots?

The Mother of All Chocolate Blogs: Part 2
Thursday, 07 December 2006

As I explained yesterday, I’ve discovered a gaping hole in the chocolate world – an unexplored area, if you will. Specifically, no one had really delved into the world of chocolate from the point of view of a pregnant or post-partum mommy.

As we all know, we’ve got specific cravings and wants when the hormones are raging. So I made it my mission to find the best of the best from small chocolatiers all across the country. For more details on my criteria and how I narrowed the final list down, see yesterday’s blog. But for now, let’s get to the chocolate.

The Mother of All Chocolate Blogs: Part I
Wednesday, 06 December 2006

I have to make a couple disclaimers here:

First, if you don’t like chocolate, I’ll see you in a couple days. Best to stop reading now.

Second, this research was done as a service to you, the readers. I didn’t conduct it as an excuse to eat a lot of chocolate.

Ok, that second one may not be entirely true. But moving to the point of this article –

I’m an admitted chocoholic. Worse than that, I’m a snobby one – I love those expensive, dark chocolates with fancy names and ridiculously high cocoa contents. When I was pregnant with Madeleine, I remember being shocked and dismayed that I spent my whole first trimester NOT WANTING CHOCOLATE. Honestly, I thought it’d be the worst part of the pregnancy; how could I be robbed of one of my biggest joys? But no matter how I tried, the thought of chocolate didn’t get me excited.
