Hungry or Bored

Sometimes when a child says they are hungry, they are really bored and if you give them something engaging to do, they’ll stop begging for a snack.

I did that today with Gpa.  He’s been getting quite a bit to eat at meal time and a snack at 10 and 2 that at other times I don’t really believe him when he says he’s starving to death.

Today I gave him a picture book from the library and he spent a good deal of time looking at the pictures.  So I’ve looked up topics he has liked in the past and requested picture books that the library has.

It isn’t good to keep stuffing someone with food when all they need is something to occupy their mind.

We had a great day and he’s gone to bed happy.

Tomorrow we’ll have lots for him to eat, the typical Thanksgiving dinner!

I hope you and your family have a great holiday!
