Question of the Week - Those Girls and Their Cookies

One good thing about being pregnant is that I don't worry about how many cookies (or ice cream or candy bars...) I eat. And being pregnant when the Girl Scout Cookies come out for sale? Ohhhhh, it's very good timing!

My only real problem is that I bought the amount I normally would buy, and that's not enough for me while pregnant. Not nearly enough!

So this week's question of the week is:

Which is your favorite Girl Scout Cookie? If you don't get Girl Scout Cookies, than what is your favorite packaged cookies?

I actually don't usually like packaged cookies. Any of them, even when they are stuffed with icing or have chocolate in them or fruit flavors. But for some reason, the Girl Scout Cookies are an exception. In fact, I've loved two of them for as long as I can remember.

Since childhood, I've had a tie for my favorites: Tagalongs and Samoas. I love them both so very much, and I could never pick one over the other. Until this year. Maybe it's just due to pregnancy, but I think I was leaning this way last year. No matter way, my absolute favorite is now Tagalongs!

Though I love the coconut and caramel goodness of Samoas, there is nothing better to me than the chocolate and peanut butter with a bit of a crunch. Mmmmm.

Unfortunately, I've only got one last, single Tangalong cookie. I'm saving it, savoring it, trying to make it last. I want it sooooo bad. But then I'll have no more, and what will I look forward to in the realm of packaged cookies?

How about you? Do you have a favorite that you can't get enough of? And do you know where I can get another box (or five) of Tagalongs?

My absolute favorite Girl Scout Cookies are the Thin Mints! I try not to buy any, but got two boxes this weekend. I have been good though, I've only eaten 2 cookies so far.

Girl Scouts are always selling their cookies right outside the grocery stores after school. You might try grocery shopping around 4 or 5pm on the weekdays. They were outside of the Amish Market this past Saturday morning, I bet they will be there again this weekend.

not to be a party pooper but I used to love those things. I came home to a beautiful box of Thin Mints and Shortbreads-- gave them a shovel (into my mouth) and they tasted like cardboard to me. wtf? after 5 years of missing them.. cardboard?!?!

Not a big cookie fan. . . I'm more of a cracker and chip guy.

I firmly believe that Thin Mints have crack in them. The other flavors... *shrug*

Of course, my all-time favorite packaged cookie is the Lu chocolate wafer cookies, the ones not dipped in chocolate (although those are yummy, too). I haven't been seeing them in the stores recently, though.

Looking for cookies?

Try the cookie finder:

Just type in your zip code!

If the other link doesn't work for your zip code, try this one:

I like this one because it links you to a calendar, which is very easy to read. :)

i USED to love tagalongs. i would eat a whole box in one sitting. i stopped buying them when i realized that the price was increasing, and the number and size of the cookies was decreasing.

how many are in the box now? used to be 16, then 14. the amount listed on the outside always said "approx. 15" LOL

Baby Fidgets in Sleep (and While Awake)

Since I've started this blog, I've had quite a few visitors find me through a search for something like "baby fidgets in sleep" or "baby fidgets in bed" or simply "baby fidgets." This leads me to believe that there are others out there with fidgety babies who drive them crazy enough to search on the internet for some information about fidgeting babies. So I thought I'd do a whole post to discuss the fidgety nature of my child and how I deal with it.

Do you want to know when my child first started fidgeting? IN UTERO!! I'm not kidding. When I was pregnant, this baby moved a lot. She was very often kicking and pushing and hiccuping. OMG, the hiccups! I thought they would drive me nuts. Every. Single. Day. For. Months. Straight. Often more than once a day. I am not exaggerating--you can ask Londo or the many people I worked with, all of whom had to hear about it. I just thought it was part of being pregnant, and it probably is, but I've al…

Some Babies Just Fidget

I have mentioned before that we had a very fidgety baby. It's been a while sinced I talked about it. Although she is still pretty fidgety, at her currently toddler stage it seems more normal and has in many ways translated into bigger, general movements, like climbing.

But I still get a ton of search hits that have to do with baby fidgeting or flailing while sleeping or nursing. Some people stay around and read a bit, and I hope they get what they need from the posts I wrote specifically aboutthis topic hoping that others realize they are not alone. Most people don't stay at all, and I figure they are probably looking for medical reasons why babies fidget (like I would).

Then I got this comment, which does indeed show that people are looking for medical reason. Anonymous said that she wasn't sure if the Pumpkin's fidgets were as severe are her 3.5 month old. Well anonymous, I can't be positive since I haven't seen your child, but at some points they were as bad …

Fidgety Baby Growing Up

My daughter was a very fidgety baby. More fidgety than any other baby I knew through all my years of babysitting, being an aunt and having friends and family with babies. So fidgety that I wondered if something was wrong, if there was an underlying reason for her fidgetiness.

There really wasn’t anything wrong. As far as I can tell, she simply has a LOT of energy in her body. Her father is the same way. Londo is full of energy and has always been a fidgeter. And me? I can’t sit in one position for a long period of time. I don’t really fidget so much as I shift positions periodically, and I don’t think I ever simply sit normal, facing forward with both feet on the ground when I’m in a chair. In fact, sitting normal sounds like torture to me.

But three years ago, when the Pumpkin was a few months old and through her babyhood, I didn’t know why she was fidgeting so much. When I would nurse her, when we’d be rocking her to sleep, when we would try to hold her calmly, when we’d be lying in…
