My son walked into our living room the other night with that look on his face, the one that tells me he’s about to ask for something.
“Can you get me some food?” he asked with a certain amount of caution.
I tend to react poorly to any suggestion that I get off the couch once I have parked my bohonkus upon it for the evening.
“Food!” I barked. “I just got you food yesterday. You need more already.”
This may sound slightly absurd to most folks, but parents know exactly what I mean.
When you have a child, they never stop asking for stuff with food chief among those requests.
If you are among those who think that having a child will bring joy into your life, I’m here to tell you, dear reader, that’s not all they bring.
As I mentioned, children demand to be fed from day one of their existence. Most of them want to be fed at least three times per day with assorted gedunk in between.
