an appropriate meal replacement. For an adult, of course. I would never let my child have a milkshake in lieu of dinner. Never.
a great source of Calcium.
a desirable post-labor "push present." Seriously. After pushing a baby out, a milkshake just hits the spot. No diamonds for this girl. Just bring me a milkshake. And maybe a cheeseburger.
really yummy when blended with Bailey's Irish cream. Now that makes a great push present.
When I was pregnant with Joey, I was working in an office and Paul and I would often meet at restaurants for lunch. After finishing my meal, I was almost always hungry, and I would need to have a milkshake. It's a good thing that Arby's was just a few blocks from my office.
My labor and delivery nurse from Joey's birth swore that vanilla milkshakes from Chick-Fil-A make your breastmilk sweeter. I'm not sure how she would know that, but I won't argue with her.
Before I was pregnant with Baby Losavio I would often get coffee-flavored milkshakes while Paul would get chocolate. I got coffee so I wouldn't have to share with Joey. I share absolutely everything else, so I don't feel bad about this.
I'm a milkshake purist. Vanilla is my favorite. I enjoy whipped cream and a cherry as well. Might as well go all out.
