Grandma Connie went to Ben’s house yesterday and I loved hearing her “Ben Report” today. He is taking some very strong steroids this first month and one of the side effects is hunger. Not just a little increase in appetite – a HUGE increase in the amount of food this little guy can put away!
Connie says he doesn’t crave sweets but instead like salty snacks like chips, crackers and pizza. When he got up the other day he told his mom he wanted eggs and hash browns on a plate with a fork. He didn’t just want breakfast, he was very specific. He’s been going to preschool and has been known to whisper to his teacher “I’m a little hungry.” Isn’t that just too sweet? Connie said she thinks he can eat more than her! The little guy likes to sit on the couch and snuggle with Grandma and listen to her read to him.
You readers have been more than kind – he has gotten so many toys and in time he will have more energy to play with them. Right now he’s somewhat tired and more interested in snuggling on the couch but he will love finding them waiting for him when he’s feeling better. Thank you so very much!
I’ll write tomorrow about our “Talk Show” – I love it! It’s almost better than a book – keep posting your stories – we need to keep a dialog going. I will answer all questions and concerns in tomorrow’s post.
