The Kids Figure It Out

Tonight my kids figured out--after twelve days--that I am fasting.

Z: Daddy, did you get some dinner tonight.

Me: No, sweetheart, I am fasting.

Z: What is fasting?

Me: (I explain it)

Z: Well, I still think you should eat some dinner so that you don't eat two breakfasts tomorrow.

    how does one fast for 12 days? I did three and almost died.

  2. I hope you don't mean died literally!

    It gets easier after day three. The third day is the hardest day of the whole fast, at least for me. I'd rather do a four-day fast than a three day one!
