We go through so much food in one week, it's not even funny. Now that Jack has become a serious eater, he's eating everything in sight. It's foreign territory for us because he ate like a bird for years. Now, we can hardly keep enough food in the house for him. He tries all kinds of food now. I had him eating crab rangoon yesterday afternoon. He even tried an egg roll. Who IS this kid?
For breakfast, he'll probably have four waffles or four slices of peanut butter toast. He'll get a mid-morning snack before school. At school, he'll have a PBJ, some Goldfish crackers, and some sort of treat for lunch. For dinner, he tries whatever is made and usually eats it. If he doesn't eat it, he lets us know what he has a taste for, which we're more than happy to make for him just so he eats. One night last week, he'd eaten THREE grilled cheese sandwiches at dinner. He grazes a lot, too. And then he shits like a man. He LOVES going poo and has become quite efficient at it.
I don't know who this kid is, but I can't wait to see just how much he grows after this. Seriously, we've thrown out four pairs of socks this week because his toes have poked through them. It's not like the socks were old; he'd only had them a month! He sure needs some more meat on his bones, so I welcome this new appetite of his. And I could care less about the grocery bill. It's par for the course.
I just never knew a kid could eat so much.
