Lunch Time

Today at lunch I heard my 7 year old say to his little 5 year old brother, "Let me know when you're all done lunch."
My 5 year old asked, "Why?"
"Because I'm going to eat your lunch when I'm done with mine."

You'd think I don't feed them enough! Then when I asked my 7 year old if he was still hungry and if I should prepare him something else to eat he said, "no."

Some days you just can't win.

Did I mention that there are only 23 days until school starts?

At least he's trying not to be wasteful. My 7 year old only volunteers to eat her little sister's snacks and broccoli. She's on her own with everything else.

I'm guessing a sister would likely never say anythign like that to her sister or her brother. Now something like, "can I paint your toenails?" yes

If your 7 year old is offering to "help" finish a meal now, I wonder what will happen when he's a teenager!?

Be careful- Mr. Seven may be beginning the long, over-eater's road to gluttony n obesity!

I pick food off my grandkids plates sometimes cause they rarely eat it, n it gets tossed! That's alot of wasted money on food...

When my oldest bro was a teen, he used to drink everyone's abandoned champagne at weddings!

You got a human trash disposal in the making. We shouldn't be wasting food in times like these. Be proud!
