Why do I feel so fat
sighed the lady as she licked
the fudge from the spoon

  1. Mmmmmm! Get it now before Lent starts!

    Ahh, the best part about being pregnant (OK, not including the baby). I got HUGE with all of mine, and probably due to too much fudge and the like, but if you can't do it now, then when? As long as you're healthy – enjoy!

  3. That literally made me laugh out loud.

    Yummy picture too!

  4. ummm, 'cause you are growing a cousin for my girls

    ps-thanks for that 🙂

  5. Cathy LeBlanc says

    I know! if you share your recipe, then we can really feel your pain 😉

  6. I hear you, lady, loud and clear.

    I think our due dates are close – end of April, right?

    That's funny but what tickles me the most is that it appears you have actually gone through the trouble of MAKING yourself this wonderful dessert. I mean, it's not in a Dairy Queen or Sonic cup… You didn't fall prey to the fast food siren call… Funny but very purposeful and full of intention.

    My kind of gal. 😉

  8. The recipe is as follows:

    Yummy ice-cream (slow-churned Publix cookies and cream)
    Dark chocolate fudge sauce (Hershey's brand)

    Layer ice cream, sauce, repeat, then top with cool whip and cry tears of delight as you devour while everyone else is at school (and Henry is napping) and you have this treat all to yourself!

  9. Creamy, cold ice cream
    layered in fudge and whipped cream
    frozen, pregnant treat!

    I love haiku….! 🙂

  10. too funny, we were just discussiing how I craved chocolate when I was pregant with my daughter,

  11. It's a good thing my kids are in bed, they'd be racing over to see what's so funny on my computer. That's hilarious!

  12. So great!

  13. You crack me up! It looks divine.

  14. Heather Viz says

    there is no fasting when you're pregnant – especially from chocolate. I think it's in the catechism. 🙂

  15. I laughed out loud too. Having recently had my 4th baby boy, I totally get it!! My baby is 3 months old now and I feel less like your Haiku, but I sure relate!
