Musings on Tiramisu

In case you don't know, Tiramisu happens to be my all time favorite dessert (kind of funny for someone who doesn't drink coffee).

When I was pregnant with Peter, I craved tiramisu all.the.time. Andy used to get a kick out of it because about 30 minutes after I ate it, Peter would kick for a really long time. One of my friends (who doesn't have kids) reprimanded me when I was pregnant with Drew because my favorite dessert contains a tad bit of coffee liqueur. After that, I stopped eating my favorite dessert when I was pregnant. Truly, there is not a ton of alcohol in it, but I would always remember what she said.

Last night, I indulged in some tiramisu frozen custard (no alcohol). I fully expected this little one to start jumping about 30 minutes later. Guess what? NOTHING! My thought was, maybe there's not a lot of caffeine in it. Well, about an hour and a half after that, as I had just crawled into bed, she started to kick, so much so that I couldn't sleep. The best part about it was that Andy felt her kick for the first time. She settled down after about 20 minutes, and then I went to sleep. Today we are back to regular baby movement.

Just in case you didn't get enough caffeine, I saw a limited edition (what??) Butterfinger that has more caffeine in it than an energy drink. Something about this doesn't sound right. Hmmm.

Tiramisu literally means "picks me up" . . . and when I eat it, I kick, too. And dance.
