Vlog for May 2

My son, the Scientist!

Higher BMR during Menstruation! Of course if you can't resist the chocolate, you need that extra 300 calories for the chocolate. Sigh.

I was"BRINKING" not "Drinking" for three days, as in on the verge of my period. I think I made up this particular definition for Brinking.

Can you identify the bird chirping (not visible) in the background? Not woodpeckers like I thought, but this is the bird that's eating my house or something (bugs?) out of a hole in my house.

    BogusAnnie - I was still asleep and my husband was still awake but way past his bedtime and not very awake, I guess, when this happened.

    no beating thyself up! Rule # numero uno!

I had a moment of wow this sounds a lot like me, especially talking about old habits verses the new habits. The chocolate is not so bad, I keep a hershey bar (hidden) in my freezer and when I feel like I need a fix I break me off 3 little squares and I feel satisfied and typically thats all we really want is a taste.
MMmm Godiva, I sometimes trade my hershey for dove :)

    interesting blog, thanks for the links!

Poor little guy, he was only doing something age appropriate...I remember those days fondly! Gawd they are cute when they do thing you may want to consider...before punishing him...and this is just my opinion...but at 5, is he completely to blame? Where were you guys? I am not judging...just looking at it from both sides, I know at 5 there were plenty of times when my son escaped my watch....good luck with that...and go easy on the little guy emoticon
