Yes, It's a Rule!

I just walked though the kitchen to find my dark chocolate bunny ears missing. You know, the ones I was nibbling on so as to savor the treat for more than 5 seconds. Since both boys were napping I looked incredulously at Mr. Incredible, "Did you take my chocolate bunny ears?!?!"

His response: "What, is it a rule you can't take a pregnant woman's chocolate?"

Ummm...YES!!! IT IS A RULE!!!

In other food-related Easter news, I prepared Easter baskets, bought egg dye, etc. well before Easter knowing that we would be traveling right before Easter. I failed to remember (in my coconut-oil induced health conscious haze) that the organic free-range eggs that I feed my family are brown. This is not ideal for egg dying. But we have 50 joyful days to celebrate the Resurrection, so plenty of time to find some white eggs.

And one last thing...if you are pregnant and gave up sweets for Lent and your baby in utero lets you know that he needs some refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup on Easter Sunday, be sure you have Tums on hand. Just trust me on this one.

That law has a corollary, which my children have had to learn, "never ask a pregnant woman to hold your cookie."

I did the same thing with the eggs!

In our house it is also a rule that Mr. Red cannot complain about being "tired" during my 3rd trimester and for the first six months of the baby's life outside the womb. Maybe it's because I'm not a saint, but the "I'm tired" line always leads to a fight!

In addition, Mr. Red likes to label my expectations of numerous entitlements during the end of pregnancy as falling under "the nine month clause." They can fall under whatever clause he wants, so long as it's clear that I'm entitled ;-)

Can you buy organic white eggs? I tried, but they didn't sell them at Wegmans. Do the dyes work on Brown eggs?

I have consumed my personal weight equivalent in chocolate since Easter! Watch out world, here comes another sweets-loving prego! :) How dare Mr. Incredible threaten the sanity of his pregnant wife?! An eye for an eye, or I guess I should say "an ear for an ear!" No question!
