    Yeah, “food” is definitely the magic word, especially where boys are concerned!

    My friends boys are 8 and 4 and already eat her out of house and home. For the record both are VERY active, and in no way could they EVER be considered overweight.

    Nine year old boys are at the start of puberty, they start to eat more and more as they power up for the coming growth spurts. By thirteen they will reduce the contents of a refrigerator to empty bottles and dishes just by walking by it. For girls it is eleven, but they throw away the emptied bottles and disposables, and wash the dishes and storage boxes; leaving no evidence of their locust like destruction of the family budget.

    For some reason, I prefer daughters.

    Could I suggest having dad stationed in the back yard at a grill full of hot dogs and hamburgers? Relief for mom! She deserves it.

    After the party dad should help with the clean-up, secretly get a sitter for the kids, and take mom out for a surprise romantic dinner for two, including a single white rose. (All arranged in advance.)

    True. “You and your friends just play quietly…” is a hysterical line. It points out very clearly Elly is a novice when it comes to throwing birthday parties for kids.
