Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Paid Family Leave (HBO)
Many American companies do not offer paid family leave, which means (among other things) they probably shouldn't run sappy Mother’s Day ads.

conversation with a 32 month old

All snuggled up on the deck in the cool night air to help with is croup (I hate croup) he started talking. I didn't say much, just the occasional words of agreement.

"Maybe Sarah will come over soon. Maybe today. Maybe we can go to a store with her. Maybe we can go to the dinosaur museum with her. We can see the mastodon. We can see his toes. We did go see a hawk. We did see an eagle. The eagle was loud. The turkey vulture was having a snack. There's the moon. Goodnight moon. Good night room. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon...." and then he launched into the extended version of "Frere Jacques".

My baby is an 80's superstar

I found Ezra licking his Busy Town book the other day.
Me: What are you doing?
Ezra (heartbroken and sighing): This watermelon is pretend.

makes sense

Ezra calls furniture "furnichair" and it pretty much kills me.

Ezra's addition to the book Yummy, Yucky:
"Leaves in a bowl are yummy. Leaves in the grass are yucky."

Stevie Wonder makes Ezra think of roosters. Every time we hear a Stevie Wonder song he asks to see a rooster.

I have no idea.

Where's that baby?

He used to just put his hands over his eyes...

Conversation with a 28 month old

Me to Ezra: "You have to hold somebody's hand when you cross the road."
Ezra to me: "Holding Ezra's hand!"
