Brunch: A Genesis Child Theme for Food & Lifestyle Bloggers

Am I raising children or hungry wolves?

I grew up in a big family, and it was rare that my mom splurged on those yummy, high-priced treats like Oreos or Little Debbie snack cakes. But when she did buy them, she'd always issue a warning as she took them out of the bag - a sentence that puzzled me for years:

"I swear, I'm not going to buy these again if you're just going to eat them," she'd tell us as we hovered around her eagerly.

Cramming Oreos into my mouth, I'd just shrug. What does that even mean? My mom must be crazy.

But now, it's crystal clear. Growing up, there were six kids in my family. I only have two. And they are hungry wolves. They devour all that we buy immediately. And those high-priced, tasty treats? Gone. Immediately. Then they crave more. Aaaargh. How can the cookie jar be empty?? We just bought cookies! Why is there no ice cream?? We just bought ice cream!!

I swear, we're not going to buy those things again if they just keep eating them.
