Providing a soapbox for the inherently cranky since 2005.

Oh, *that's* going on the blog!
We here in the KLee/JF household are trying madly to watch what we eat as we both feel about a combined total of 15 months pregnant. We went out to get some salads for dinner tonight. I am about saladed out, so I got a more tame (for me) pasta dish. Offspring wanted to know if she could have a chocolate milkshake for dessert. I was reluctant to let her have one because we all need to be watching our intake of really bad stuff like chocolate milkshakes. I felt a little sad for her, because she's only a kid, but I want her to eat a little more healthfully. I tell her that we'll stop by the new store that opened and get a smoothie instead. It may not be bran flakes and a vitamin, but it's better than ice cream, blended with chocolate and whole milk. She, naturally, since she takes after her rotund mother, she gets a chocolate smoothie. I ask her how it tastes, and she says, "Mmmm, Mom! It tastes like hot chocolate without the hot!"
