I usually don't take things too personal but for some reason something one of my co-workers said really got to me.
We are going to be bringing in treats for St. Patrick's day on Friday, which I love!
She says she is going to make chocolate stout cupcakes with Irish Cream Icing and states in her email, "the alcohol cooks out, right???:-)"
I responded by saying that yes it does in the cupcake but not in the frosting.
We work in the Developmental Disability Field. We work with children with Alcohol and drug issues all the time. I don't care if other people drink alcohol while pregnant it's just not my thing. I can wait until the little guy is here and even then I probably won't for a while.
So her response to what I wrote was "Ehhhhh.... won't be much in the frosting. Im going for it!!!!"
I want a cupcake and I know it won't hurt the baby because really there is not much in there but I guess it was how she said it.
I dunno. I think I am being overly sensitive and I just need to get over it.
I guess If I have a pregnant co-worker and I knew their wishes I would alter the recipe to make sure it was safe or make something different but that is just me.
Thanks for letting me vent
