In a Dirty Glass

I read once that rats can live indefinitely on eggs - Jack could live indefinitely on milk.

Some people wake up and need their morning cup of coffee - Jack needs his sippy full of milk before his day can officially start. When he's ready for breakfast it had better be served with a second cup full of milk. Sometimes I tell him he has to eat before he can have more milk and he always asks for cereal - because you pour milk on cereal.

We buy 3 gallons of milk a week and Jack is the only one who drinks it straight up.

Patience is non-existent when Jack needs his milk. It doesn't matter what you're doing because he'll bring the cup and an entire gallon of milk to you. Even if it means you're pouring it for him in the bathroom because you are...uh...occupied.

His love for milk is so intense that we've actually grounded him from it as a punishment. It's one of the few things that really gets to him.

There is one sweet thing about Jack's little love affair; Jack rubs his hair while he drinks milk from his sippy. He can be one big stinker around the house. He's tough, he likes to rough house and he gets into mischeif. But stick a sippy of milk in his hands, set him on your lap and you have yourself a sweet little three-year old.

Yes, Jack loves milk. It does his body good.

I'm so glad my house isn't the only house that goes through insane amounts of milk in just a week. But we double yours, easily. Then again, I've got 4 milk drunks that live here as opposed to your one. I'm seriously considering buying a dairy cow they can milk in the mornings, So I'm not having to rush to the stores, as fast as possible, before school starts.

And I'm having flashbacks of when my mom would 'cut to the bone' with punishments and ground me from the phone. Cause it worked. Really well. I can see why Jack would be so upset.

Note to self: when kidnapping Gwen's beautiful kids, bring sippy of milk. At least ONE child will come willingly. ;o)

Jack is a good boy and lucky to have a mother like you, willing to serve milk at anytime...even from the jon. You're awesome.
