Hunger Induced Hearing Loss

I've always heard that boys will eat you out of house and home, but I thought that was supposed to be during the teenage years.

Lately, Park has been eating his toddler weight in food. Every time I turn around, he is begging for something else to inhale.

A few mornings ago, after eating a huge bowl of cheerios with blueberries, 2 pancakes, and a frozen banana, he asked for some oatmeal. Less than an hour later, he inquired about a snack. I gave him an apple, which he chomped to the core.

Now, typically, I live by the motto that anyone who expends that much energy is entitled to refuel as often as desired. However, shortly thereafter I decided to put off his pleas for more food by reminding him that it would be time for lunch soon.

He thought about that for a moment and then defeated, shook his head in disgust.

"Well, you are just starving me to deaf, Mommy," he proclaimed sadly.

Perhaps that accounts for why he never seems to hear me when I ask him to clean up his toys?

Ha! So funny! I wish my girls would have an appetite period. Mealtimes around here are like pulling teeth - ugh!

Oh, and frozen bananas? Is that something I should be trying? I freeze grapes, but have never heard of frozen bananas.

Deidre-
Oh my goodness, we couldn't live without frozen bananas! I wrote about the specifics many months back. After reading your comment, I just added it as a link so you can go to it directly by clicking the words "frozen banana" on this post. It is a MUST for your summer sanity:) Enjoy!
