Note to Self...Never...

...get twins boys immunized on the same day. If one fussy baby is challenging, two at the same time is nearly unmanageable. Thank goodness for a mom who forgoes extra trips to Walmart, a clean house, and three-hour naps to bounce baby boys. Thank goodness for a husband who forgoes much needed sleep to walk babies at 1 in the morning, then gets up at 4:00 AM to go to work! Thank you, Mama and John!

(I'm happy now, but just wait until 1:00 in the morning!)

(Can I go last?)


And what, you may ask, did I do to make myself feel better? I did what anyone on a diet would do. Boy #3 (8 yrs) was making this...


So I thought I would get some of this...


and pour some of this, unbaked, raw eggs and all...


over this...


And you know what? I don't even feel that bad about it. And I think that is a problem...

Ok, I think there´s a rule, that if dealing with cranky baby´s you´re allowed to eat whatever your heart desires! Didn´t hear that one yet? You should come to my house....it´s a big rule there! :-)
Hope they are feeling better!

Dieting and shots don’t go together! It’s just a given that you can eat whatever you want guilt free on immunization day!

Krissy said...

lol That's HILARIOUS! And OH. MY. HECK... do I know what it's like having 2 kids immunized on the same visit. That's BAD. I would have LOVED to see a picture of you eating the raw brownie batter on ice cream... LOL YUM.

rough, jen, just rough. there are just times a girls gotta eat. like that day. and for me, sunday. will you make me a brownie chocolate sundae special? kidding. wow way to go hubby of the year! now go have a nice nap!

I bet you're going to miss your mom!!
That dessert sounds delicious. I agree with the other comments... calories and dieting just go out the window on days like that. It's an age-old coping strategy!! :-) So you said you're going to see me today. Does that mean at a bridal shower?? Are you actually home? I can't wait to find out :-)
Love,
C

Of course you shouldn't feel bad about the brownie batter and ice cream! We need those coping mechanisms!!! I always take the twins to get their immunizations together, because I can't imagine going back a second time, BUT I ALWAYS take someone with me because I really don't think I could do it alone....usually my mom and sister go with me. My girls just had their 18mos. checkup. I posted about it too. Check it out if you have time! :) (PS- I think I have an idea for the contest post. I am going to work on it later! :))

Is that ALL it took to make mommy feel better? :-) I don't know if that would have been enough for me to endure two kids on the same day with shots! Hang in there!

The Farmer's Wife said...

Wow Jen! Glad to know that you learned you lesson...BUT will you ever need to know that again in the future...hummm???? (haha) Are you back??? I need to come by, if you know what I mean;) I have a little something to drop off.

Melinda Pink said...

I agree on a day like that you can have whatever you want...guilt free. You are a brave mommy. Ok I just saw twins in June and they already look much bigger...so cute!
Keep going Jen.......You are great!

You showed me how raw cookie dough could be a meal, but I never thought of raw brownie dough. Yum! Hey, remember that fruit dip we used to make with fluff and cream cheese???? Another good meal.

I found your blog through Tammy, and it's great! I have a nine month old and can't imagine what it would be like if we had two of him, climbing, crying, eating or anything else! I agree with everyone else...don't diet on days like that!!!

Barbiemat said...

You should sell your delicious chocolate ice cream. I hear you are home now. Yeah! I will be back in a week.

Bethany Cox said...

i think the twins look like erik.

Jarmeg Family said...

I learned a similar lesson- I took all 3 boys to get shots on the same day. Wow, was the trip home awful, just awful. I probably came home and ate something terrible for me too!

I think salmonella is a government conspiracy.
