Out of House and Home

I have a concern.

Let's just get down to the nitty-gritty of it, shall we?

Why is it that my 12 yo boy, who has recently shared with me that he now has hair under his arms, has suddenly reverted back to being an infant in a five foot tall body?

Observe Exhibits A, B, and C as follows:
  • He's a grump of epic proportion if he gets less than 10 hours of sleep. He actually prefers 12 out of the 24 he's given.

  • He cries at the drop of a hat. Or a baseball glove. Or a lego truck. Don't ask. 

  • My first-born wants to eat...literally...every two hours. Just like a newborn.

Seriously? Is this going to happen with all of them? Because I don't think my husband and I together could make enough money to feed them all if this is going to continue. That's if I made any money at all.

I think I'll search Craigslist and see if there's anyone out there willing to pay a salary for doing laundry. I'm really good at that. My experience here is colossal.

Silver lining: At least he hasn't reverted back to diapers. Yet.  
For this I can be eternally grateful.

Hang in there, girl! Just when you think you've got this stage figured out, another one hits! HA

Just what our boy is like now!!!

Although he doesn't have hair under his armpits yet he is totally reverting back now!!

Oh, Chel. I feel your pain. The bad news is that yes, they all go through it. Even the girls (though not to the same extent). The good news is that when they go to college you'll have tuition bills, but the decrease in food bill more than offsets it. See? There's light at the end of the tunnel!

LOL!... then you will turn around and be missing them while they are off raising their own little guys. =)

I love this! You make me smile all over my face. :)

Hopefully if it does happen to all 3 of your boys... well, hopefully it'll happen to them ONE AT A TIME.

Laundry though... good idea. Let me know if that turns out to be lucrative.

So 12 huh? So I have about 5 years before I get slammed huh? Hmm, and I thought he ate alot NOW. :)
