Did you know that being pregnant is a lot like being a toddler? I didn't until I read Lisa's post at Expandng -- and I laughed out loud.

He doesn’t like green leafy vegetables, and I need something sour and/or spicy at every meal. Lucky, Alan, right? We haven’t turned Alan into a short-order cook or a midnight cheeseburger runner yet. Though when it’s my turn to cook, I do tend to cook toward my cravings…this week definitely has burgers on the menu so I have the excuse to eat lots of pickles. I think J might even like pickles.
