I Have A Theory

So, you know how there is this cultural belief that women LOVE chocolate. I have never really gotten it. I mean, chocolate is okay and all, but when I see a bumper sticker that reads "Forget Love-I Would Rather Fall In Chocolate," all I can do is shake my head and wonder how anyone can seriously feel that way. A donut or cake or some small candy is great now and then but better than love?


Recently though, as I polished off a box of 30 chocolate covered cookies in something like 12 hours I think I started to get it. I mean, I am not sure I am buying the whole better than love thing, but the whole LOVING chocolate thing...I finally got.

Then today, on the ride back from my grandparents house, I was thinking about chocolate (weird, I know, but I still have a little residual new baby brain!) and this new love and I think I have figured something out. It is not WOMEN who love chocolate but instead it is MOTHERS who love chocolate.

Think about it, you know the woman driving the car with the love bumper sticker has a few kids at home. And when you consider commercials, the woman with the chocolate addiction always has a total mom sweater on.

Is there ever an end to the effects of pregnancy hormones???


  1. Hehehe. The effects of the pregnancy hormones seem to last forever doesn't it? But they will past. One of my cravings was taco bell. I had to have it day and night it seemed. Before I was pregnant, I only ate it every now and then. Now that I am not pregnant, I can't STAND taco bell. The sight of a taco bell commercial appalls me! LOL.

    I am following your blog. I just had my first baby girl this past June and is growing up so fast. Felt like I just had her yesterday. Come check out my blog from time to time. I have some videos posted on my blog that are private because I don't know how I feel about having her out on the internet but that feeling may change soon.

    Be back soon. Hang in there! :)

  2. Oh, and congrats on your baby girl! :)

  3. Hi!

    I had the same thing with Taco Bell! I was obsessed while I was pregnant but now I am kind of "over" it.

    Congrats on your little girl as well! I will be checking you out :)

  4. Haha, glad I wasn't the only one with the Late Night at Taco Bell obsession! Yeah, I guess you aren't FULLY over it since you posted about those taco flavored Doritos! LOL

    Thanks for following my page! You aren't that much younger than me so I will definitely be checking back to see how things are going. I know how hard it can be but we will make it! Keep your head up! :)
