Sugar crash

I miss my easter candy. I just do. I know it's good that it's gone. I know that it's good that our next "candy" holiday is months and months away. But I really love having an excuse to have seasonal candy in the house. I'm lame like that.

But chances are you are, too. Maybe a little? Yes?

Nothing good to post. After dismantling the kids' easter eggs and sorting the candy into piles (yes, still writing about candy), I told Chase to hide the candy from me. I've had too much and sugar makes babies BIG. At least this is what my friends who have endured gestational diabetes tell me. And I tend to believe them. So anywho, my babies are big all on their own. I don't need a baby inflated by sugar. So I told the man to take it. Take all of it! Far away!

He hid it in his closet. I know because I found it two days later with not much trying.

He also hid the Halloween candy there.

So when Chase got home yesterday and saw a suspicious looking wrapper sitting next to me he was right to question. But he didn't mention that he was MOVING the hidden candy!

But he did.

And I am sad.

hahaha... way to go chase. I don't think I would have the courage to ask Pax to hide the candy from me. I just need it sometimes! :)

People with gestational diabetes don't "use" the sugar in the way it is intended so it overloads into the baby's system. You can eat it and your baby will be fine......go ahead, search until you find that candy! ;)

Can Chase come hide my Easter candy too? My mom sent a big 'ol package from Sarris...I'm in trouble.

First of all, YOU'RE NO QUITTER.

Secondly, what do you mean you don't have a Candy Holiday in the near future? Don't tell me you didn't know that April 22 is Earth Day. And what color is the earth? That's right, brown -- the official color of chocolate.

April 22: Arbor Day, celebrating trees, which are green. What else is green? Come on, stay with me, Anna ... everyone knows that the best M&Ms are GREEN.

May 5: Cinco de Mayo. Nothing goes better with Mexican food than beer; and nothing goes better with beer than your personal favorite, Circus Peanuts. (I'll drink the beer; you eat the Circus Peanuts.)

Followed closely by Mother's Day on May 9. What do Mothers love? Drawings from their kids? A handful of dandelions? No, they love CANDY. Also too Sara's birthday, and who doesn't think of junk food when they think of Sara? Come on. Don't let that marathon fool you. I saw her eat an entire cake at The Pantry.

Then we've got Memorial Day. Why do you think they wrap Kisses in silver paper? Bullet symbolism, that's why.

June 6 is Canadian Forces Day. A Kilgore of all people should know that there's a fancy Hershey's factory in, that's right, Canada. If we don't buy their Hershey's candy, the entire Canadian enonomy will tank, and I, for one, do not want the responsibility of destroying Christy's birth place.

Dude, don't make me drive out there and rip your UMC card to shreds. Now march your slippered feet to Walmart and get yourself some candy. I expect to see a nice pile of wrappers in your next post.

Sweet post, yo. I'm never disappointed by a new Anna post, especially with a lengthy Bed comment. I did not ever no never eat an entire cake at the Pantry. Have you ever seen Matilda? That's like the size of their cakes. But I would consider it if they ever brought back my beloved red velvet checkerboard cake.

Nice try on the candy hidage. Unless it's gone, either forcibly take or entirely eaten, it's no use.

I should mention that I found the candy - again without trying. He hid it next to the cleaners. Maybe because HE never uses them he thinks I seldom look there...
You know, except for EVERY DAY when I'm cleaning.
So he re-hid it.
Then Miles found it.
So there you have it. CANDY!
Deb, I literally laughed. OUT LOUD, no less! I think it was the Hershey kisses that symbolize bullets. That's just too much for one pregnant bladder to take. I'm glad it's early and it's empty.

Deb @ Confessions of an Ugly Mom said...

OK, Sara, so it wasn't an entire cake, but it was almost an entire slice, which is almost the size of an entire normal size cake. And I will come clean that I was right there with ya (Dudes, it was a chocolate with Forbidden Peanut Butter Icing cake!!!!) But that's not quite as shocking.

Anna, for the love of all that is good and right in the world: less cleaning; more candy!

Guess I need to check the blog more often, so I can get the real deal. Next time I hide the candy, I guarantee you will not find it.

Chase, I double-dog dare you!
You have to admit that hiding it next to the cleaners was AWESOME.
