Have you ever seen any Discovery specials on bugs? More specifically, have you ever seen any Discovery specials on bugs with heat sensors? That's my child.
I don't mean that he can sense when there's a live body next to him. No. What I'm talking about is that my little almost 3 month old son has an innate sense of when his parents are sitting down to eat food. He can be asleep for an hour or just a few minutes, passed out cold or stirring in his sleep, and it doesn't matter- that child will wake up the MOMENT we put the first bite into our mouths. I'm convinced that if we left him with a sitter and went out to dinner, that when we got back, the sitter would tell us when he woke up and it would be the EXACT moment we began to eat.
Its a little frustrating and a tad bit scary.
However, this is definitely a GREAT diet program. I start to take a bite of food, he screams, food gets put down, no calories taken in to collect as fat. I never walk away from the table with that "I'm so stuffed" feeling. I'm gonna be skinny in NO time.
However, I'm starting to feel a bit woosy from lack of nourishment.
Oh well, maybe it'll be like the sleep I'm starting to lack. Before long I won't even miss it.
Besides, all new diet plans have their downsides. At least I don't have to count calories- the math is simple: 0+0= starvation, I mean, 0. Who wants to count to 1200 anyways?
Food is overrated.
He DOES leave me amazed, though. It'd be one thing if he was eating solid food and his blood-curdling screams were due to jealousy that we were starting without him and anticipation of getting his own portion; I'm pretty sure that his cries, though, are due solely to his wanting to be my one and only- and that goes for what sustains me, too. Maybe its a weird twist on what Sigmund Freud said about little boys being jealous of the relationship their mothers have with their fathers- only, Nicholas is jealous of my relationship with a hamburger.
