and one more thing

The other night I had the following conversation with Hunter:

Oh, first I should set the tone...EVERY single night Hunter decides he's starving as I tuck him in to bed. Regardless of what he's had to eat all night, as soon as you put the covers on him, the boy is famished...and it drives me insane. I decided I was going to lay the law down and the bed time snacks were going to be a thing of the past.

Hunter is of the impression that every single thing you tell him is negotiable so he's gotten pretty creative in asking for his snack. He needs an apple because, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away and I think I feel a fever coming on". "I need some cereal in bed because I need my energy in case I do any sleep walking". How can you not give in to these? Obviously, I do...then one night he comes quietly down the stairs at about 10:00 with a very somber look on his face and says the following:

H: "Mom, I've been thinking"
Me: "Yes son"
H: "First of all, I would like to apologize for my behavior"
Me: "Thank you Hunter, I appreciate it"
H: "Second, I think I have an eating problem"
Me: "An eating problem? You don't say..."
H: "Yes, I just can't stop eating!"
Me: "Oh man, what should we do about that?"
H: "I think I would like a banana"
Me: "That's fine son, take a banana, go to bed..."

He's five yall!!!!!!! Ya, I'm in for it.

He had his pre-K graduation today. I cried, we all cried. It was so special and I'll be sure to tell you all about it later...once I have pictures uploaded we'll do a little show & tell :)
