I pack my kids’ lunches — I know how much food they eat during a typical school-day. Why is it that during July and August, their appetites are exponentially larger? Do they have seasonal tapeworms?!
As a work-at-home parent, I get to hear each and every request for a snack. Our daughter is seven and our son is newly nine, so anything edible is still on lockdown mode — meaning they have to ask me or my husband if they can have so much as a single cracker.
Is that weird? I don’t know, honestly.
Our daughter would eat five packages of fruit snacks every hour, chase them with a 2L bottle of pop and refuse to eat a proper dinner until she turned 21.
