Sometimes my kids simply amaze me. It seems as though they are always hungry.
It never fails ... 10 minutes after we have just finished eating supper, one of them asks me for a banana or a piece of toast. 10 minutes!
"How can you be hungry?" I ask. "We just ate supper 10 minutes ago!"
The typical answer ... "I don't know. I just am."
I don't feed them junk. I could understand if they were eating junk how their bodies would still be craving good food.
Sure, some nights we don't eat the greatest ... like we'll have pancakes or French toast. But that doesn't happen too often.
Most evenings I let them eat a snack about 1/2 hour before bed. I've started letting them know this in advance so I don't have to hear the whining all evening about how they are going to starve to death if I don't let them eat something.
So my question is, what happens to the food they just put into their bodies? Do their digestive tracts work like 100 times faster than mine does? Because I can go to bed hours later and still not be hungry.
Do they truly have hollow legs?
I just don't understand.
