Care and feeding of a teenage boy

I was on the phone with my husband this afternoon as he and the boy-- just the two of them, mind you, over in Billings running errands-- drove up to place an order at a local Burger Doodle. I hear:

"I'd like five Whopper Jrs, two orders of fries-- one regular, one king size-- and two drinks, please."

Whopper Jr's are small; what's the problem?

They're not THAT small-- ONE of them fills me up just fine, thank you.

Yeah... I popped over to the Burger King Calories site - Only 400 calories per Whopper Jr. The King fries has 590. He's a growing boy... I can see it.

Having raised four boys through teenage-hood to adulthood, I know that this is normal boyfood. I gain weight just looking at stuff like that, but boys burn it off. Of course,t he ultimate schadenfreude moment was when my eldest boys started to have weight problems after the birth of their kids...

I know what you mean. Our oldest is about to turn 16. I got an idea of what the 'average daily teen-age boy requirement" would be when he was 14 and I'd made a meatloaf for dinner. Half of it was eaten, so when he'd done the dishes I asked him "Did you put the rest of the meatloaf away in the fridge?" He said "No. I ate it." I thought he was joking.... but he wasn't.

And the way he can drink milk makes me think about getting a cow sometimes. 8-)
