Excuse my clumsy non-mother brain, but is this an entry for a non-sequitur competition?

Mei Del said...

i'd like to shoot the somebody who told me i had to eat for two when i was pregnant ... and then when i was breastfeeding ...

Mei Del said...

fortunately for them i'd forgotten who it was - it may possibly have been more than one person - and no jokes about maternal dementia please

Vincent although this does read in such a way it is merely here as I received it in my mail box at work and thought I would share it with my own little addition to see how observant my readers are.

Mei whilst nobody told me to eat for two somebody told me that cravings are fine as they are usually for an ingredient missing from your normal diet.

It was too late when somebody told me the only craving you shouldn't give into is sugar!!!! I had to have a jam donut everyday and if I couldn't it had to be something else with sugar on like kiplings country slices (box at a time). I had never had a sweet tooth before that.

Mei one of the midwives when I was in hospital (I forget which time) was telling one of the other mums that you lose 25% of you brain cells with each pregnancy......not much hope for the likes of you and I in that case.

Vincent said...

OK, plagiarism and non-sequitur. Anything else to confess whilst you are at it?

Anyhow, may your date live up to expectations; or live up to the opulence of his car anyhow. Will you tell all?

Vincent said...

Sorry, is it a girls only blog?

The penny just dropped: "If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye ..."

No, it brought a rise to my gorge. I come to this site for your beauty and English wit, not some regurgitated transatlantic sentimentality.

Lady in red said...

Vincent I don't do girls only blogs. Any kind of reaction is fine with me. It didn't bring a tear to my eye either but then I don't go all gooey over babies either.

However I don't like to stick to one easy recipe for my blog. I like to kep my visitors guessing what I shall be serving up to them next.

Having just completed a very different post over on battle I wanted a complete change in direction for this one.

I hope you will continue to enjoy my wit.

I am sure I shall tell some though not all ;-D

Vincent said...

Ah, having checked your "battle" blog enough for an overview of the theme of its latest post, I hastened back here, where the motto is "Make yourself comfortable". Phew!

Awwww... a lot of truths in there :)
