Sometimes I Hate That Kid

I took Thing Two to the doc last week and it turns out he is underweight.  He is 4' 9" tall and weighs 71 pounds.  His BMI is 15 - the low end of normal is 18.  So the "prescription" is three hefty meals a day, three snacks of nuts, fruit and cheese a day plus 2 vitamin and calorie laden shakes (think Boost or Ensure) plus a bowl of ice cream every night at bedtime.  The high fat, real cream, super yummy ice cream.

As he scarfs down his bedtime "prescription" he asks me don't I wish I needed the same medicine that he does.

I almost strangled the little fucker.

Skinniness is wasted on the skinny...or something like that. Urgh. I'm jealous.

I'm going to have to kick him in his scrawny little butt when I see him next!

Does Thing Two attached to my foot make my hips look big?
