The kids are growing too fast - I can't keep up!

Carus has taken to being hungry all day everyday. I seriously do not know how she is able to eat all that she eats! On Thanksgiving day she started munching at 9 am and was going until I cut her off at 7 pm because I was worried about tummyache nightmares and vomiting...she was golden though.

Since school has started she has outgrown/worn out: 3 pairs of shoes, 5 pants, several shirts, socks, stockings, and there does not appear to be an end in sight!

Adam isn't far behind - I don't think there is a single shirt in his closet that doesn't just barely come to the waistband of his pants, whereas they should come a few inches past. It won't be long until I can't pass them off at all and his tummy will be showing. His shoes have holes AGAIN and he is still insisting on wearing the expensive shoes that I got him last year (cuz he begged) at 2 sizes too big so he would have time to grow in to them and I would get my money out of them. It was a great idea except for the fact that they were worn out before he outgrew them. That was the end of the expensive shoes - back to Walmart/Target/Payless finds.

Adam is about 3 or 4 inches away from being the same height as me and will probably be taller than me (not hard to do) by next summer - or the end of next summer.

I have to get the new shoes now, but I wonder if I can push the new clothes out til Christmas and make that a few more gifts...knowing my luck they will sprout 5 inches overnight and come out with their clothes ripped and hanging off like the hulk.

It just seems to be one of those times when they are growing up way too fast...and I can't get them to slow down long enough for me to watch.
