The boy appears to be going through a growth spurt. After dinner last night, he asked for some more food to eat and then he had two desserts, including an ice cream cone. Right before bed, he asked for some more food, but by then it was getting late, so I told him that the kitchen was closed.
As I was getting a glass of water to bring up to bed, the boy said, “If I can’t have another snack, then you can’t have any water because the kitchen is closed.” I said, Water doesn’t really count as food. The boy said, “OK, may I have a glass of water, please? With some noodles and cheese, and maybe a hot dog? Please?”
Did I mention that the boy has been practicing his Jedi mind-control powers?
