About 5 months into my first pregnancy, my cravings for hot dogs (seriously?!) began. I held out as long as I could since hot dogs are on the "do not eat when pregnant" list, but I did eventually give in to the craving. Repeatedly. I can just imagine what the people at Wawa were saying, "Oh, look, there's that wolfish pregnant lady eating our hot dogs again."
I only eat a hot dog a few times a year now. Usually at a picnic. I don't detest them like I did pre-pregnancy, but I'm no longer on exhibit at the Wawa hot dog counter.
My kids don't like hot dogs either. This used to make me happy. I don't have to buy them or cook them. And I don't have to worry about what's in them. Enter Pinterest, and now I mourn what could have been if I had kids that like hot dogs.
AHHH! Don't let the pregnant lady eat us!

I have no idea what these are, as the website is definitely not written in English. Bunnies? Pigs in a blanket? Regardless, they're darling.

The hot dog massacre. Mom-to-mom advice, you might not want to serve this one to your kids. It's too hilarious not to be included, though.

I have a friend, Lianne*, whose son loves chili cheese dogs. I tried to find some cute chili cheese dogs. Sadly, I came up empty. No matter how cute the hot dog is, once you dump chili all over it, the cuteness just looks like a pile of chili. But, I did find some variations that I want to lump in here, because I'm not writing two blogs about hot dogs. I can't believe I even wrote one.
