Well basically my 3 yr 3 mo dd, the last couple weeks this kids is starting to way me out of house and home. Before we had the hardest time getting her to eat anything. What's going on?! Yesterday she ate 2 granola bars, 2 slices of toast, a kids sized bowl if oatmeal, 3 sausage links, 3 mandarin oranges, a cereal bowl of doritoes, a kids sized bowl of animal crackers, a kid sized bowl of tuna hotdish, a half of peanut butter sandwich and milk, water and some juice throughout the day.

Growth spurt I would guess. LOL

My boys usually do that, then shoot up a couple inches at a time.  Eat everything in sight, sleep more than average, and then need new pants LOL

Be happy she is eating!!!! Its a struggle to get either of my kids (DD is 3, DS is 20 months) to eat any meal through the day. A couple bites of cereal here, a bite or two of fruit there... some milk and juice, maybe a couple bites of a granola bar... I don't know how they survive day to day on eating so little food!! Today, they barely shared a small bowl of cereal and I'm making them each 3 chicken nuggets for lunch (usually with a side of fresh fruit) and I'll be lucky if they each eat just one nugget... :( they both will eat their 3 o'clock snack, then they both usually refuse dinner. Why?

 Growth spurt! Both of my kiddos eat like horses and trip over their own feet right before a growth spurt.

Just wait...

I have 12 yr old and 10 yr old who each eat more in a sitting than DH and I combined.

That's the way my dd was. I was afraid she was going to die of starvation! (not because I didn't offer but because she wouldn't eat) Just wait, one day she'll wake up and you'll be wondering where she's putting it all!

I think that's what's going to happen with my ds.... I might have to take out a second mortgage just to feed him.
