FUNDRAISER?!?

I was thinking about doing a fundraiser...not for our China adoption expenses, but for Matthew's grocery bill. The kid can put away the food. I bought a smoothie the other day...it was pretty big...and he drank almost the whole thing! He was polite enough to give me a drink when I could muster the strength to pry his greedy little hands off the cup...but I eventually had to distract him (Look, there's the Easter bunny!) so that I could throw the unfinished drink away...not that there was much left! While I could have used another sip, I thought that if I didn't get it out of his hands he would drink the whole thing and explode. Or turn into a big fat strawberry (kind of like the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka). Then the other night, in addition to everything else I fed him, he ate a whole sweet potato...and when there was no potato left to scrape out, he picked up the entire skin and started stuffing it into his mouth. I think he definitely eats more than Scott or I do. And when he is finished with everything on his plate, he scans the table with his eyes...back and forth...finger pointed...looking for MORE, MORE, MORE! My last grocery bill was $184. $180 of it was for Matthew.

that is hilarious - now I know why his diapers overflow if he's downing a whole smoothie. :) hahahaha!
