Cravings and Turning Green, "oh my!"
Okay, in the blog world you never where you are going to get an idea for a post! I wasn't sure what I was going to post about until I visited Kelli this morning. She was talking about some yummy cinnamon rolls she had made and one of her commenters said how yummy they looked but that they couldn't stand the smell of cinnamon. This particular commenter said that when they were pregnant that was the smell that sent them "running to the bathroom" every time! That got me to thinking that it might be fun to write about and hear what Y"ALL sent your dear husbands out for at one in the morning because you "just had to have it" and also what made your stomach do "flip flops" when you smelled it!
When I was pregnant with my son I was teaching Kindergarten. I would get off at one in the afternoon and as I would drive home it's like my little Chevy Chevette would have a mind of it's own and automatically drive to the Hardee's drive-thru. I know, I know, it wasn't good for me, I blame it all on the Chevette!! Now, for some reason, I couldn't have just one, but two, count em two CHILI DOGS loaded with lots of onions and mustard. EVERY DAY, Y'ALL! While reading stories to the children my mouth would start to water in anticipation of the feast I was about to partake of! Chili Dogs would be dancing through my head!
With my son I could not stand the smell of Dove bar soap. Now mind you, I have always loved Dove but as soon as that line turned pink or blue or whatever the heck it was, my tummy would go into assault mode every time I smelled it. The problem? My dear Grammy was a devout Dove soap user so every time I would visit her and have to go to the bathroom (y'all know how many times that is when you are pg!) I would literally take a big gulp of air before entering the room (kinda like a swimmer!) and then hold my nose and "take care of business" as fast as I could! That got me to thinking this morning, "hey, maybe that's why he had such an aversion to bathing when he was a little boy!" But then I thought, " Nah!!"
When I was carrying Miss Bonnie I could not STAND THE SMELL OF COFFEE. Now, I've never been a big coffee drinker but I have always LOVED the smell of it brewing. Not during those nine months, though! My craving when I was carrying Miss Bonnie was something totally different than I had with my son. We had a candy store in our local Mall and they made the BEST, I mean the BEST cotton candy you could ever put your sticky hands on! My poor hubby made "hmmm, SEVERAL" trips to the Mall so I could indulge in the "cottony sweetness." As I've told y'all before, Miss Bonnie is a girly girl through and through and she just adores the color pink. She also has the sweetest heart of anyone I know. Mmm, makes you kinda think! LOL Now it's your turn to share!
