Me Want Food!

I am having an eating day...

Have you ever had one of those days where you just wanted to eat all day long? I have them once about every 30 days or so. I'm usually pretty well behaved, appetite-ly speaking, but then, BOOM!

Doritos are consumed by the bag, I suck down brownies and whole loaves of bread. I dip apples in peanut butter and drink milk from the carton. I'm kinda bummed this is happening again because from what I had heard, the little friend that comes to town bringing these shark attacks of food consumption, was supposed to be gone for at least a year, as that is how long I plan on breastfeeding.

But no. No, not for me.

Aunt Flo came back in full force last month...while we were on vacation.

The SECOND DAY of the first vacation K.O. and I had taken in three years.

I just don't get it, my sister-in-law is still holding off the backslide and HER baby is over 12 months old. Emmy is JUST seven months today...what the hell?

The only difference is that she exclusively breastfed her daughter until she was almost a year and we started incorporating solid foods into Em's diet four weeks ago. Maybe the extra toll of breastfeeding a VERY HUNGRY, larger baby convinced her body to keep itself barren for longer. Maybe her boobs sent a message to her brain, complaining of all the EXTRA work they were putting in and filed for an extended vacation at the end of their run as "food source".

All I know, I could get pregnant again.

Arg. No thank you.

I like that Emmy gets to be the only little girl, that she gets all of my time and all of my energy. I don't think we'll be "trying" again anytime soon; I'd like for Emmy to be in pre-school (at least!) before we bring home a little sister.

Yeah, a new baby is not what we need.

What I do need is some glass cleaner and a candy bar.

I think I'm going to look on line as to how to make Windex out of home ingredients.

I will not be looking up how to make candy bars as I'm pretty sure you can't make chocolate out of vinegar and tomatoes.
