she's a pretty good eater… always eating an adequate amount. not too much but not too little. but right before a growth spurt, she really packs on the calories.
for example, today, i decided to do the lazy-mom thing and order in pizza and wings. this is what chaeli had:
- six wings
- a plate full of fries
- three glasses of milk
she'll be like this for two or three days and then go right back to her normal amount of eating. within the next month, i'll notice her lengthen. it still astounds me how nature works in a growing child.
for the past couple of weeks, her class has been learning about animals from the arctic. last week was all about penguins. this week is about polar bears.
i'm for-seeing a trip to the zoo to visit some polar bears.
but not until next weekend. chaeli is having a sleepover at my parents place this weekend which means doug and i will get a chance to have a saturday night date.
place of dinner, to be announced…
but I'm hoping it will be a nice establishment.
