Shopping Revelation

This weekend our fun family outing was to Sam's Club - you know, the discount warehouse store?  We bought the membership three years ago when I was pregnant and freaking out about buying diapers for twins.  I've debated whether it was a good investment since it turns out I can get good diaper deals elsewhere as well, but since I can renew free every year using my Discover card points, I keep the membership and go every now and then.
M and N, June 2010, going to Sam's Club


They are eating like little horses.  It's quite unbelievable.  With the exception of new foods, like, oh, say a casserole or pork chop (heaven forbid) they will eat every meal and sometimes ask for seconds.  And sometimes, thirds.  But today, M even ate a CASSEROLE THAT HE'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE. Gasp!  Literally, I gasped!

This is a BIG CHANGE from the way they (okay, M) has been eating for about a year.  N is "healthy as a horse" when it comes to his relationship with food.  The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, if ya catch my drift (wink wink;)

However, last weekend I picked up a box of Froot Loops because they were on sale and I had a coupon, yadayadayada.  Since they were sweet and brightly colored, I knew the boys would like them, but I was not prepared for them to inhale the whole box in four days.  Yes, FOUR DAYS.  Hubs and I didn't touch them, I swear, and they boys are eating them out of my old latte mugs with kiddie spoons. Because otherwise they just pour the milk everywhere at the end when they drink it - since I knew you would ask. They are just two and half!  I am just completely floored that they've eaten and entire box of cereal by themselves.  I didn't expect this for years.

And they have a brother on the way, who, by the looks of it, is going to rival them in the height/weight/eating department. 

I had a revelation this weekend: 

I am going to be warehouse shopping for the REST OF MY LIFE.

(Deep breath) I am okay with that. 

Really, I am.
