this is what happens...

when a certain little boy chooses to not listen to his mother
when she tells him not to play in the little green wheelbarrow
because it will tip over.

Can you see it?

What you can't see now is the gob of dirt
that ended up in his mouth as a result of the face plant.

This is what happens when you say silly stuff at the doctor's office
to get that little boy to sit still so the doctor can check his ears.

When you're at home playing with the toy doctor kit,
that little boy might check your right ear and say,

"Hmmmm...there's vegetables growing in there."

and the left one...

"And there's peanuts growing in that one!"

And this is what happens when that little boy does listen to his father
telling me night after night upon sitting down for dinner

"Thanks for dinner, Love."

That little boy will come into the kitchen one evening
after hearing the dinner bell ring and he'll say,

"Thank you, Wuv. Thanks for dinner, Wuv."

And you'll be glad that sometimes he listens.

So sad about the scrape. But so, so, so cute about the Thanks for dinner, wuv. And that's pretty cute that Dan always says that too.

Thanks, Ella. We're just oozing cuteness at our house.
