Sissy is eating garlic peas this morning. You know the type: they're freeze dried or something and then flavored. Most people like the wasabi peas better, but the Evil Twin always buys the garlic ones.
And Sissy is hooked! I guess they do have some nutritional value, though? I'm not sure because the Evil Twin buys them at an Asian market and the writing on the package isn't in English.
Now, I can speak Spanish (fairly fluently), I can muddle along in French, but when it comes to the Asian languages, I might as well forget it. I have a hard time keeping up with Ni-Hao Kai Lan (a preschool kids' show about a little girl who is, I believe, speaking Mandarin).
Anyway, I guess it's better than the Pez she normally wants for breakfast. We jokingly call her Pester McFly because the child dearly loves sugar. Most of them do....
I should have seen it coming. I am not big on sweets myself. But when I was pregnant with her, I kept a stash of mini Snickers bars on hand and I would have one per day. I craved the deep fried cheesecake from Mayberry's.
I thought for sure I would end up with gestational diabetes! But, I only gained 13 pounds in 39 weeks and she was an average sized newborn at 7 lbs. 5 oz. A full 5 pounds bigger than her 28 week older brother, so she seemed quite large to me. :-)
When I was at the Mart of Wal on Monday, I dropped off a prescription and then forgot to pick it up. I only realized my oversight as we were headed out of the parking lot, so I'll be going back today(I'm out of it as of this morning, so I NEED that refill!). Luckily, there are a few other odds & ends I need to grab as well, so it won't be a complete waste of time.
I hope you hooligans have a happy Thursday - and don't forget about Friday Secrets. So far, I have no secrets... So, send 'em in!
