Since the weather has become cooler, we whipped out a few pairs of pants that we had stashed away. In only one month, Theo has managed to grow a good 2 inches since all his pants, which were a bit long back in Canada, are now extremely short on him. Unfortunately, he hasn't gained an ounce since leaving resulting in a much more gangly child. It takes a lot of effort to get him to eat very much in one sitting, so I have been slipping more calorie dense foods into his diet. Back home I would give him high calorie meal replacement drinks between meals, but until I locate these in Japan, I am sticking to triple buttering his toast and letting him enjoy the wonders of Mister Donut.
Mister Donut is a coffee and donut chain in Japan that makes surprisingly good donuts. Theo's current favorite is the strawberry bear donut. It has chocolate eyes, strawberry glaze, and whipped cream inside. I took a bite of his last one and it was ridiculously good.
