There is a God

This was in the latest issue of Focus on Your Child Early Stages magazine (free from Focus on the Family), right under the article regarding depression (I wonder why...)

"Babies Love Chocolate, Too!
Let the prenatal celebration begin! New research suggests that chocolate consumption during pregnancy is good for both the mother and the baby. Previous studies have associated certain chemicals in chocolate with a positive mental attitude [duh!-ed.], and now it seems that babies may benefit from it as well. Researchers monitored the stress levels and chocolate consumption of 300 pregnant women throughout their pregnancies. Six months after birth, the babies of those mothers who regularly ate chocolate appeared much happier and calmer. They even smiled and laughed more than babies whose moms didn't eat as much chocolate. These sweet results seem to show that chocolate is a calming treat for both mothers and their preborn babies. Not that we needed one, but now there's another reason to love chocolate."

hint-I'm due in May and Christmas is in two weeks

Gee, that must be why my girls are so happy.! (Most of the time-except when I don't let them play on the computer.)
