The title says it all.
My son -sigh- I love him, I really do, but...
Let me start off by saying, D was a BIG boy when he was born. I was a petite 110 lbs when I had him, he was 10 lbs 22 in long, and had a 14in head and
chest. 0.o ( that's the look on everyone's face when he was born ) He has always eaten like a goat. He will eat just about anything and he likes
just about everything, but now that he's hitting puberty ( my gawd he would die if he knew I was writing this ) he is just eating NONSTOP.
I honestly think if I were to butcher a whole cow and put it in front of him, not only would he eat the whole thing, but he would complain there are
no potatoes to go with it! Now I know that teen boys eat a lot, and the rumor is they have hollow legs, but holy hell this is like competition sized
portions of food.
I can still see his ribs and spine and OMG he is so incredibly scrawny !!
I have been sneaking more fiber into his diet to hopefully fill him up, but I'm worried I may have to start selling body parts on the black market
to feed this kid. I've also been told that it's only going to get worse from here.
So my reason for this post is to ask the members here on ATS that have survived teen boys, HOW?! Help me please!
OH and on top of that it's like all common sense has just up and left, and I am seriously beginning to wonder how any male of the human species even
survived into adulthood. Everyday I look at my husband and he just shakes his head and says, it's a boy thing, I did it too, and I'm just like
I have a daughter too and I have a few more years till she hits puberty (Thank the Gods) and I know how to deal with the disgusting, evil, succubus of
a teen girl. But the black hole of a teen boy? I need reinforcements.
Does anyone have any advice, secrets, ideas, is it illegal to put him out to pasture?
I like my kidneys where they are currently, I would really like to not have to resort to selling one just to feed my son
I mean I will if I have
too, but I would prefer not to.
