Not so very long ago Tom used to be content with a packet of chocolate buttons, but now he is chomping his way through an enormous birthday box of Thorntons Chocolates, that weighs in at a third of his birth weight, (so that will explain the growth then) but he’s such a nice boy, I’m sure he will be willing to share with his mum.
