Sweet Child of Mine

Recently, a friend who had given up almost all sugar during her first pregnancy asked if I was going off of sweets for my own adventure in gestation. After I stopped laughing I told her that, while I'm making protein, fruits and vegetables the priorities in my diet and eating desserts sparingly, I do not plan to give them up all together. I'm of course concerned with having a healthy baby, but even more so, I worry that if I gave up all sweets I would end up harboring deep and tenacious resentment toward my child. The cupcakes stay.
