I Should Have Named My Sons Hoover and Dyson

I just witnessed this and had to jump onto my laptop to chronicle it. Yes, it is that amazing.

This is what my two sons, ages 5 (almost 6) and 4 (as of yesterday) just ate for breakfast.

3 peanut butter pancakes
2 cream cheese blintzes
1 package of smoked salmon
6 slices of French bread with cream cheese (vehicle for the salmon, of course)
8 slices of pepperoni
3 helpings of Santa Claus melon
1 serving of watermelon
2 cups of vanilla yogurt

I have a hunch they will be asking for a snack before this post is done.

And you see why I can't commiserate with the other moms who say "I can't get my kids to eat a thing" and other such nonsense?

That is the breakfast of champions.

What's just as astonishing as the sheer volume (which I recognize, having 3 boys of my own, just wait until they start bringing all their friends over) is the bizarre selection. Pepperoni AND watermelon, YEAH. At certain points you just start shoving food items in their direction and try to keep your fingers away from their mouths.

Good post!

My daughter and I just had a w/e with a friend with 2 teeneage boys. They ordered 2 full breakfasts each at the diner we went to. And ate them all.
So looks like your boys are right on schedule!

Holy garbage disposals Batman!

Of course, Shortman manages a large pepperoni pizza at 8 p.m. AND a large bowl of cereal at midnight.

They're growing boys. Keep them fed.

sounds like my boys were visiting your house! we're preparing to take out an equity line to cover groceries when they're teenagers...

Just wait until they are teens!

Eight. Yes EIGHT. That's how many gallons of milk we go through at my house per week.

I cannot keep enough food in my house for my children. I have given up. Three grocery store runs per week have become commonplace.

And they still ransack the cabinets and announce there's nothing to eat!

Can I have breakfast at your house? I'll bring a dozen eggs and some bacon to hold off the horde, if you will make me peanut butter waffles and blintzes.
