So, the kid that I gave birth to must be experiencing a growth spurt. He’s eating me out of house and home lately and I’m starting to wonder does he have a tapeworm. Where is he packing all these calories? Just this morning, I fixed him his normal breakfast of waffles, bacon and a bowl of fruit only to be told that he is still hungry. WTH? He asked could he buy some cereal at school for breakfast since we were walking out the door. Really?
I said, “Munch, we don’t qualify for free or reduced lunch and it is expensive to purchase food at school.” With his beautiful brown eyes he said, “Mommy, I have money in my piggy bank. I can pay for my food.” I paused and said, “No baby it is mommy’s responsibility to make sure that you eat. I will add money to your school account.”
I did. I’m confused. He is constantly telling me that he is hungry and asking me for more food during dinner (only vegetables though). Ugh! I need a part-time job to support his food issues.
