Shortly after making his appearance on Earth, Little E inflated to the size of a Smart Car.
There were rolls, creases, folds, and my favorite, the rubber bands, all over his body.
I had to fend off total strangers who wanted to poke and prod him like he was the Pillsbury Dough Baby.
I know you are growing tired of me blogging about Little E's girth, but what I'm going to tell you right now will BLOW...YOUR...MIND.
As I was diapering Little E this evening post-bath, he was wiggling around quite a bit and did a full body stretch and that's when I saw them.
They were protruding from his trunk like he was some high-paid b*tchy super model.
YOU HAVE RIBS! (I actually joyfully exclaimed this to no one, except maybe the dog).
I thought Little E's ribs were only a myth.
So this is what it must have felt like the first time some one caught sight of the Loch Ness monster.
In honor of this shocking discovery, I've decided to put together a short list of some of my favorite myths.
1) People who hate dessert
3) Faithful Politicians
4) My six pack (abs, not beer)
5) Jewish Athletes
Care to add any to my list?
Little E started out like this...
But has recently morphed into this guy...

I have seen Mr. Yoy a total of 8 awake hours over the past week, with the majority of it coming last night when we hired a sitter and went over to the Dwood Yoysers to visit with my brand new nephew. Mr. Yoy is killing it at work. He is working crazy long hours and with NBA players now trademarking their eyebrows, I may never see Mr. Yoy again. Anyway, I'll admit it. I'm bored. And, a little lonely. I try to put the kiddos to bed at a reasonable hour, and then I have a few hours to tool around the house. I can only eat so much ice cream and watch so much Say Yes to the Dress before my brain begins melting and slowly slides out of my ears. Tonight, I spent 30 plus minutes on the phone with a stranger that was contemplating buying my bar stools I had for sale on Craigslist. We were chatting it up about how hard it was to find the right bar stools. The ones I am selling are pretty nice, solid stools. My one complaint is that they have wicker seats and if you look c
Day 65. I first want to say Happy Birthday to my best friend who would have been 44 today. I found a funny email exchange we had with each other back when we both first had our babies and had zero clue as to what we were doing. DOES THIS THING COME WITH AN OWNER'S MANUAL? The buildup has been immense, but this was the actual last day of school here in Cobb. Big E had his final Zoom call with his class. His teacher put together a video of them with baby pictures mixed in with their current pictures and I stood over Big E's shoulder and watched and silently cried. I left to grab a tissue and returned to watch the whole 5th grade video with photos of them starting as babies in Kindergarten and now as 5th graders. Again, I stood over Big E's shoulder and silently cried. He turned to look at me. I tried to play it cool. YOU CAN LEAVE NOW. Normally that would have hurt my feelings, but I'm so raw from everything, that I just numbly walked away to clean up
Over a week has gone by since we set the clocks ahead one hour, and I'm still dealing with the ramifications. Tonight, I put the Yoys to bed around 7:30. I feel like that is a respectable bedtime for a two and four year old. Big E thought differently. His closing arguments in his case against it not being bedtime went well beyond ten minutes. The daylight at bedtime thing is really rocking his world. Finally, Big E requested a phone call to Uncle Yoy to verify my claim that bedtime had arrived. Uncle Yoy confirmed that it was indeed bedtime. For the record, I wore this kid out today. Two hours at the botanical gardens where he operated on only one speed: Olympic Sprinter. After that, we headed to the mall where he lunched and then spent an additional 1.5 hours in the new play area. He nodded off as we drove home and I know for a fact he was up in the middle of the night playing as he woke me up at 6AM to tuck him back in. And his bedroom light was o
