CHIC-lets Are . . .

April 6, 2009

I waited for Shelley to announce Jaime’s CERF result before I explained this awful pun — she finally posted it this morning.  Shelley will be registering Jaime with CHIC (Canine Health Information Center), and Chase is already CHIC registered.  So, these two healthy youngsters will, hopefully, be parents of a nice bunch of CHIC-lets in late May.  It will not be the result of them dancing CHIC to CHIC (boo, hiss!!!), but rather of the implantation of Chase pupsicles into Jaime.

I’ll let you know when Jaime starts asking for pickles and ice cream.  (Do you know a single pregnant woman that ever wanted pickles and ice cream?  Surely this is an urban myth!)

PS:  Shelley’s theme is computer words, e.g., Spell Check, Cut and Paste.  I’m sure she’d welcome (almost) all of your ideas.

    Ice cream yes. Pickles, yes- the only time I’ve ever liked pickles- but NEVER together!

  2. Alden says:

    I ate nothing but Fruity Pebbles through all four pregnancies. Morning sickness was quite a “colorful” affair.

    Fingers crossed for puppies!

  3. Julie says:

    Very exciting!!

  4. Kathleen says:

    I craved skim milk during my pregnancy; drank a gallon a day. I have always liked milk but never in that quantity since he was born. Maybe that’s why he’s 6’3″. I do love pickles (all varieties) and ice cream; but not together and not when I was pregnant.

  5. Shelley says:

    With my son it was peanuts in the shell…bags of them!! But I couldnt stomach the smell of coffee (she who drinks 12 cups a day!)

    When I was pregnant with my daughter Gerry brought home a big bag of peanuts and I nearly threw it at him. For her it was Mint Aero bars – 4 a day. She should have been born green. And I gained an entire 8 lbs during the pregnancy (I was about 90 lbs lighter back then) and she weighed 7 lbs 15 oz six weeks premature.

    With Mandy is was salad with bleu cheese dressing at the IRS cafeteria. And watermelon. Those were almost the only two things I could stomach the entire pregnancy. And I ended up being like 40 lbs lighter than I am now when I went to the hospital for her delivery.

    With Jamie, on the other hand . . . I ate (sigh).

  7. So cool — the first CHIC-lets. A very significant accomplishment!!!!!!

    Trying to think of something high-tech that includes CHIC…………..
