I thought I'd give you a little Mini-Hoover update. (We call Walter, his dad, "the hoover" for his ability to finish everything on every one's plate.)

Mainly because it simply stuns me how much he eats and how skinny he is. Of course, I was like that once... long long ago.

He walked in the door, ate about 6 pieces of sushi, finished a box of crackers, drank a big glass of Kool-Aid, half a sleeve of girl scout cookies.

And then, when I told him I was going to the store? Asked for a fried chicken sandwich, popcorn chicken (large, please).

Where's the fruit?

I mean, that's an entire day of eating for me. All in fifteen minutes.

Walter and Mini-Hoover should get together with my brother's dog Lucy. She's trained to the command "Hoover!" which is given once the kids are done with dinner -- she's then allowed to go under the table and clean up all the food that dropped (which is plentiful!).

A week? I hardly ate that much for the entire NINE MONTHS that I was pregnant!!

Sue, that's too funny. We just say "get'it boys!" "Hoover" is way funnier though.
