Where is he putting it all??

I swear my son must have a hollow leg! He's been literally eating twice as much food. Is this how puberty starts?

  • I had two boys, fortunately not teens at the same time. Your grocery bill will be going up. Just make sure you have lots of easy to fix, healthy foods like fruit, cereals, for munching. I feel for you mama!

  • Yep, that would be puberty all right.....I often wonder the same thing about my son; he eats more than his father. I don't know how he doesn't explode with all he eats at one sitting. I remember my parents referring to my brother as "the human garbage disposal" and now I know why - at 14 he ate anything that didn't move or move fast enough...
