|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.
