Bottomless Pit

Parker's tummy is not unlike the Sarlaac Pit in Return of the Jedi. April was at a course in Toronto a few weeks ago and Parker and I went to Montana's for lunch. I figured they would have some plain chicken and mashed potatoes or corn or whatever. So we sat down and I looked over the menu and decided I'd order a chicken meal for me and just give him little bits of it. For some reason I had forgotten that Parker's tummy is like a bottomless pit. He ended up eating pretty much the entire meal by himself, and I was left with a few scraps of drumstick and a piece of cornbread. Even though he's just a little boy, he can eat an entire meal by himself! What's up with that? The nice thing, though, is that he knows when he's full so he'll stop eating when he's ready. He has always been a good eater, but now our grocery bill is going way up!
