What my son has eaten today. TODAY. (He's 16)

  • half a jar of peanut butter
  • almost an entire loaf of wheat bread (minus one piece)
  • one pound of blueberries
  • two balls of frozen cookie dough
  • half a gallon jug of milk
  • a handful of raspberries
  • half a pound bag of sugar snap peas

...did I mention that this is in the past three hours? (He ate a whole box of cereal and gallon of milk for breakfast and I have no clue what he ate for lunch at school.) And he just asked me when dinner is going to be ready. Also, my son looks like Mike Teevee after being put on the taffy pull - skin and bones and pushing 6 feet. Seriously, if we could bottle this metabolism, WORLD DOMINATION. Or you know, murdered in the middle of the night by drug companies.

HEY! TEEN WOLF IS UP AT HDJM! S01E02. ALSO: TRUE BLOOD: the finale-ing! SURELY I have Breaking Bad peeps here. I've not seen it yet, but I understand that it was an OH MY GOD episode. Dexter is also there, and Dr. Who returns tomorrow!

The child - up until JUST NOW - has never given two licks about his appearance. Floods? okay. Normal shorts from two years ago that now look like OP courderouy tan shorts from the early 80s? (You know you have that visual!) SURE.

This year he let #2 and I pick out clothes. He's in skinny jeans.

...and they're baggy on him.

I bet if you listen, you can HEAR him growing, like cornstalks.

Teenagers are grumpy because their bones are stretching all night long.

My Son went though a huge growth spurt from 15-18. He could easily drink a gallon of milk a day. It was nothing for him & his buddy to eat a loaf of bread & a pound of lunchmeat after school (they'd come off the bus STARVING) and then circle the kitchen like a shark around 6p.

I miss those days! Darn kid grew up!

That is EXACTLY where I am with this one!

My grocery bills are something else... and I make most of our food, too! I'm about to start buying him Hungry Man Meals just to save me the trouble. ;)

bad bugs!
This comment actually applies to your earlier post with the picture of THE SCARIEST THING EVER. I'm posting here because I CANNOT go back there, I am still shaking.
Would you believe I am phobic about caterpillars? Even typing/reading the word freaks me out. If I see one I lose my freakin' mind, and that includes pictures. When someone says to me (patronizingly, always) "But they turn into beautiful butterflies" I say "Screw you, butterflies are just flying caterpillars". When I see a butterfly I run like hell. :(
Am I alone on this?

Re: bad bugs!
IT IS A CATERPILLAR NOT A HORRID BIRD-SIZED SPIDER! (okay, I get it. I can't stand spiders or grasshoppers in any type of visual.)

I don't think you are alone, actually! I'm finding a LOT of people that feel this way. I WILL PUT A WARNING ON ANY FUTURE POSTS, omg. ;)

Re: bad bugs!
You know, I can't count how many times people have told me, "It is more scared of you than you are of it" ... NOT. POSSIBLE.

You don't have to put a warning up for my sake, BTW. I will still read anything you post because you make me laugh so hard, I can't even tell you how close I've come to needing to needing a change of pants because I'm in serious danger of peeing myself. But still, if you do thanks a lot you are a peach! :)

O.o Geeze... I WANT his metabolism...

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
