Not true!

Today at my HUGE FAILURE of a yard sale (chance of sprinkles MY ASS BOB, it poured all morning – well, not all morning, just the part of the morning after I had already set up everything in the driveway) our very nice friends stopped by to keep us company and let their three year old run in circles around our dog. It was a win-win situation really, they both burned off enough energy for a nice nap – although in the end I think it was more of a win for us, as the dog is still exhausted and their daughter is probably already in running in circles again. Let me tell you just how much I’m looking forward to THOSE years.

Anyways, while they were here I put the baby down on the carpet and said “Watch, he can roll over now!” And Baby Evan smiled and laughed and lay there like a lump. “No really!” I said “He rolls all the time!” And Baby Evan didn’t move. Then Joe Wilson jumped out from behind my bushes and yelled “You lie!” Fox News plans to air the footage at 7:00. Ok ok, not really. But no matter how much I encouraged him, Baby Evan refused to roll and I looked like a delusional person insisting over and over that I DID see a magical rainbow unicorn I DID. Either this kid already has a really twisted sense of humor or the presence of people other than me and his father makes his brain shut down. That bodes really well for his education.

Now it’s 6:30 and our company is long gone and I’m sitting here typing this with one hand because the other one is CLAMPED AROUND THE BABY’S LEG to keep him from throwing himself off the couch. And just to prove I’m not delusional, here’s the proof:

    I saw the strings!!! The dog is out of frame pulling him over! Congrats baby Evan, now onto total world domination…..or getting up on your knees.

    I love the big accomplished smile on his face. He’s like, yay, I did it, now give me the toy!

  4. The first of many moments where your baby will cause disbelief of all your family and friends. Kust wait until the first word pops out. I think they all come with an “anti-perform” microchip that falls out later (around 2-3) and then they don’t stop performing for everyone!

    Non stop singing and dancing from a 4 yo DD does have a limit…I speak from experience. lol

    Oh my gosh that grin! I loved it. He looks so pleased with himself.

    Also loved the Joe Wilson reference.

  6. Aww! Now you have proof – you should do what I do when I want to show people pictures of my tattoos my pants off and put the video on your cell phone. It’ll be almost as cool as real life.

    It’s great how much he knows – he was ambivalent about the rolling, but after he did it and heard you praising him he was quite chuffed with himself :D

    His laugh at the end cracks me up!

  8. Ahhh, the “I am not a dancing monkey” look. I know it well. I swear my kid is a genius. He’ll count to five as soon as he’s done picking his nose. Really.
