So it's about 10:30 in the morning. AJ has been awake for about 3 hours. In those 3 hours this is what he's consumed thus far:
first sitting for breakfast: bowl of Crispix and a glass of milk
2nd sitting for breakfast: yogurt and a piece of toast
3rd sitting for breakfast: piece of french bread and an apple
in between these sittings, evidence was found that he also consumed 3 small Kit Kat candy bars. (Of course,this was w/o my permission What kind of mom would I be if I allowed him to eat candy for breakfast!?)
Before lunch I'm sure he'll ask for something else to eat.
I can't imagine the kind of food we'd go through if I had several boys. Like how did my mother afford to feed her 4 growing boys, or my mother in law who had 5 sons???!!!
If I had more than one boy..............I'm not sure I could afford to keep them!!!!

I SO hear you on this one! I seriously can't afford to feel my 3 boys, they are CONSTANTLY hungry! Literally, minutes after we've eaten a meal they are looking for something else. UGH! I'm not sure where it goes either!

I know E X A C T L Y how you feel. It seems that it is my life to feed Jared. Constantly. There are times I just have to "close" the kitchen and tell him to come back later! I'm not sure how he is going to survive in 1st grade next year with only one breakfast in him and just lunch to tide him over. Does AJ eat dinner though? Because that is Jared's worst meal of the day. We can't get him to sit down in his chair and eat even one frustrating. Then he of course wants something else (dessert!) before the dishes are even done! ARGH!
