shrinking food supply

It amazes me how one person can eat so much. Two bowls of oatmeal in the morning. Fruit, crackers, cheese, sandwich at lunch. Today's lunch was grilled cheese with yogurt and a sandwich and a half was consumed. Dinner usually consits of two helpings. In between each meal is one snack. When the plate is empty, I hear, "Are you going to eat that? Are you done? Can I have what ever you don't eat? Are you done yet? Can I have that?" Eating all day could very well be happening if I didn't set limits.

The 1st question in the morning, "Mom, what are we having for dinner tonight?"
Pants are getting shorter. Shirt sleeves are shrinking. Major growing is going on.

I told Ed today, I can't imagine what it's going to be like when he's a teenager and goes through a growth spurt. Let alone when he turns 6. Ed's reply, "I'll need to go donate plasma just to feed him."

This is true. But if you think about it, you have a half and half chance that your kids won't be either. :)

Mine is only one and he's been fascinated with food since he could start eating. We are always shocked at how much he eats now (he ate a junior chicken burger and fries yesterday all on his own - that's how much I ate too!). I'm afraid how much it will be when he's a teen too.

That's hilarious...but I know how true it is. I wish I could get Kimi to eat that way. She's a bird.

At first I was wondering who Kimi was...but then remembered....oh yes! that's Tooter! :)
