So far in my pregnancy I haven't had any one craving that has stuck. I went through a couple short craving phases, apples, caramel popcorn balls, (which I never ate!!!) zucchini, Chinese food, Indian food, cheese burgers, (that one was very short, but I unfortunately gave in a time or two.) strawberries, plain yogurt, Arby's roast beef sandwiches.
So, about a month ago I was on my way to work. It was a Saturday and I didn't have to work the whole day but just needed to run in for a bit. I was later than I'd planned and while I was driving I has this overwhelming desire to eat Subway. I talked myself out of stopping because I wanted to get to work, but when I got there I'd wished I'd stopped. I was hungry! Well it wasn't 15 minutes and my boss came up to me and said, "I'm going to Subway to get lunch for Sue and I (his wife). If you're hungry I'll buy you lunch." What the!!! It was so great. Thanks boss.
Then a week or so later, at work I started thinking about this BBQ chicken pizza we'd had at work for a birthday a few weeks before. I even asked someone if they remembered where it was from and I looked it up to see if there was one by my house so I could stop on the way home. My boss had been gone for a couple hours and around 1 in the afternoon he walked in, holding a bbq chicken pizza!!! He must have seen the glow on my face because he didn't even really offer, he just handed me a plate and told me to come and get some pizza. Mmm...Thanks boss.
And then yesterday, I started thinking about vanilla soft serve ice cream, first I thought of IKEA and their dollar cones, and as the day went on I kept going back and forth about stopping on my way home at the McDonalds that's right by the freeway entrance. My boss was at the post office and bank during this time, and a half hour or so later he came back. He was carrying this box tray thing and it was full of cups of Costco soft serve vanilla ice cream with raspberries. Magical.
I know you're thinking this can't be true. I know, right? But it is.
I asked Paul why he doesn't have that ability as the Father.
Now I have to work until the baby comes, or I'll have to start paying for my own cravings.
