You know what Mr. Bag? I will have a nice day. I’m gonna hang you in my kitchen and fill you with other bags. You will eat your family.

Ellis is currently taking a nap. I should be happy because:
1. He is actually sleeping. In his bed.
2. I have been mad at him all morning for getting up so early.
    2. a. This is pretty unfair of me because he is a child AND because I went to bed at 6:30 PM last night. No lie.
But I am unhappy because he will be up in 15 minutes (11:45 AM) and it’s 12,000 degrees outside so we are stuck messing around inside all day. We have six hours to fill until Papi comes home and I pretend like he hasn’t worked for 12 hours..and hand off Ellis. Stellar attitude, I know.

Today, we went to a coffeeshop and hung out for an hour. It was awesome. I haven’t visited Filter since Ellis started walking because I was scared he would go on a rampage and break 22 hipsters’ Macs. However, not only is the owner really friendly, but the place cool with kids wreaking havoc. Plus, he and his family are neighbors. So while Ellis bothered a girl studying to be a Physicians Assistant (at one point he had her reading him an Arthur book), we talked about neighborhood shenanigans that I don’t want to repeat here and our upcoming bombass block party.

EK looking like how I feel. And are those eyebrows growing right before our eyeballs?

Guess who is awake. Told you.

p.s. Today I got a new (to me) office chair off the back of a truck. Literally off the back of a pickup truck. For free. My legs are itching a little, but I am trying to ignore the possibility that I might have welcomed someone/thing terrible into my home.

UPDATE: We got out to the pool and ice cream shop today – lost a billion calories walking but it was worth it. Especially because it was the only way I could keep EK in a diaper/pants. In an effort to fulfill every toddler boy cliche,  his two new favorite things are telling me no and stripping down to his birthday suit.

Wise words? Bring it.
