We were looking at our recent vacation pics and there is a great one of the Pumpkin Man leaning in to kiss his baby cousin. Very sweet. He’s a sweet boy.
This picture is also notable because it highlights how large my son’s squash really is. His head was so much bigger than hers. You could fit a thousand of her heads inside his. If you put 60 of her heads into the P-Man’s head and it was transparent and you shook it, it would look like a snow globe.
I’ve mentioned his parade-float sized bean before, but I assume most people think I’m being hyperbolic.
I now have scientific proof:
At his last doctor’s appointment, the growth rate of his head had slowed considerably.
Our doctor said, “ Oh good.”
“Good?” my wife asked.
“Well,” said the doctor, “if it had continued at the same rate, I would’ve been concerned.”
. . . Concerned? The size of my son's keppe is concerning.
The Pumpkin Man’s head is so big, it barely averts disaster.
The medical community has weighed in on my son's head with a resounding, "Holy shit, an eclipse!"
I would be remiss if I didn’t add that my son is also devastatingly handsome.
Really a beautiful little boy.
More scientific proof? Fine.
Hypothesis: My son is very handsome.
Fact: The P-Man is constantly lauded by the general public for his good looks.
Fact: Movie stars are very handsome
Fact: The correlation between male movie-stars and large-headedness is well documented.
Conclusion: My son is very handsome. That’s science.
Shopping futilely for hats,
P.S. I would also be remiss if Ididn't mention that he takes after his daddy. It's just not as noticeable because of my massive chest and shoulders (gut).
P.P.S. I've been an irresponsible blogger. This I know. Catching up after vacation and being pulled in a lot of directions a once and so forth. I promise to do better.
Also, finally, I got an A in my Fundamentals of Algebra class . 4.00 GPA. Take that, imaginary people who said I couldn't do it.
