Let alone a candy shaped like a smoking implement. So in this case, chocolate "isn't nutritious enough" and cigars "teach kids to smoke" and look phallic too, if you catch my drift. Even though a cigar is just a cigar.

I remember trying a candy cigarette during elementary school, that a classmate gave me. It was really fun pretending to smoke it during recess. Although you can do that even with a short pencil.
My, how times have changed in twenty five years! This was in Texas too!

I loved candy cigarettes too!

Lots of men worry about that second child upsetting the apple cart of the one child family. It won't. It will be fine. Relax. Your joy will be multiplied.

Yupp. We got pregnant with the 2nd one quicker than expected. Just when everything was starting to get much better. It's normal to feel it.

But yes, the pain in terms of hardship can be bad. Especially if both are really young. Money too. But there is a joy and fullfillment that is priceless when I see how they get along, play with each other now.
