My 13 year old is on the skinny side (NOT his mother's gene's) and I think as he's getting older he's starting to feel a little anxious about it. I didn't think it bothered him that much until today.
He went to get a smoothie at a local smoothie making store and got something called 'The Hulk'. He tells me what's in it, vanilla ice cream, some nut something or other and a weight gain protein powder.
Not five minutes after he tells me what's in the smoothie he turns to me and with a very serious face says...
"Mom? How long does it take for the weight gain stuff to start working?"
It nearly broke my heart to explain that it doesn't work quite like that. But after much talk about how he could gain weight the right way he decided to come work out with me tomorrow.
Man I'm glad he's home.
