Hoping I Didn't Forget Anybody

We've got a "thing" for Peanut M&M's in this house.

They can make the world's worst boo-boo suddenly feel just fine and dandy.

They can dry up tears in a flash.

They have been a requirement at each and every Penguins game the Toddler has attended.

They should be present anytime there is ice cream about to be shoveled into a Toddler mouth.

They can be used as an effective form of bribery for pretty much everything (except potty-training--that would be far too easy).

And, the Peanut M&M thing started when Alexis was just moments old. As our new little family was sitting in that tiny little hospital room, Mr. Husband was chomping on a big ol' package of the special candy.

As he watched me throw-up repeatedly from major drug-induced nausea.

Alexis, only your Dad could keep on eating through that massive amount of vomit. I think you can attribute your love of the candy to him.

Happy Father's Day, Mr. Husband!

(And Pappaw! And Grandpa! And other Grandpa! And Pops! And other Grandpa yet! Oh, and other, other Grandpa yet! And that other Grandpa, too!) (Yes, Alexis has a lot of grandparents. A LOT!)

  8. Aw, happy father's day!

    Zach also managed to eat away throughout the whole ordeal. I threw up while in transition, multiple times, and then threw up a few times after surgery. laski is right: men have stomachs of steel!

  9. I see that Peanut M&Ms weren't the only thing that started right off the bat... I see that Stealer's logo peeking out there above her precious little arms. LOL!

  19. I'm glad I'm not the only one who suffered from post-medication vomiting. You know, just the thing you want to do after giving birth -besides eating Peanut M&Ms, which I love, too.

  21. Mmmm....peanut M&M's. What a great bribe, a little bit of protein in every bite, right?

    (Tatum is allergic to peanuts. It's tragic having to keep those M&M delights out of the house.)

  22. Happy Fathers Day! (A day late!) That man is tough! If I so much as HEAR someone gag it is over.

  23. Seriously, peanut m&ms are like Windex in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Cures anything. It's scientifically proven.

  24. Happy Father's Day, Mr. Husband!

    (nice that you got one of him smiling...or someone did...he always seems so serious...he must've just had his peanut M&M's while you horked-out your guts)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yum, Peanut M&M's. I'll bet you're glad Alexis doesn't have a peanut allergy!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. mmmmmm, now I am craving peanut M&Ms. We only have regular ones around here. I think I will go smear some peanut butter on them.

    The Kid has a crap load of grandparents too. Lucky ducks.
    He's got 3 grandmothers, 2 great-grandmothers, 3 grandfathers and 3 great-grandfathers....a few are step, but still. Holy cow it's a lot of lovin'.

    BUT. Since that might make me a stalker, I will just say HAPPY FATHER'S DAY Mr. Husband!!

  36. Our family food is regular m/m's; we even have a certain way of eating them ☺ Too long for a comment section but does give me an idea for a post...

  37. Happy (belated) Father's Day, Mr. Husband!

  38. Its a Pittsburg thing, I swear it. My husband and his father adore peanut M&Ms and love the Steelers. Coincidence? I think not... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I just noticed that Mr. Daddy and Little Miss have matching Steelers wear. How special.

    And those hospitals all must get a discount at Ugly Is Us because those are the very same chairs and wallpaper as in our maternity ward. And something tells me that you didn't come here to birth that baby.
