All Them Chocolate Eggs—Binge or Hoard?
posted by Sheri
Dawn over at this woman's work brings up a question that's spinning around in my house today since we're Easter celebrators: let the kid binge on all the chocolate eggs now or let him savor them slowly for the next three weeks?
The problem with the first choice is obviously that I would have to live through the sugar crazed night. The problem with the second choice is that I will have to constantly dole them out for weeks (Mommy! Mommy! My Easa bassit! Pleeease.); however, then I can use them as leverage for good behavior (Want to have another chocolate egg in this lifetime? Then put your underwear on now!). Then again, the longer them chocolate goodies are around, the more apt I will be to eat most of them myself—and trust me, he will never notice. He's only three.
Dawn's post also has some great thoughts and writing about recurring miscarriage and adoption. Don't stop at the first paragraph. It just gets better after that.>>link to source
