Pearly Whites and A Seriously Displaced Placenta
Recently, my Mother has been referring to me as Puff because my legs and ankles are more often filled with fluid than not these days. Tyler was pointing to my legs this morning and asking me what we called them. I was stumped. Until finally he said, "Oh, that's right, Puff".( I had no idea my almost four year old knew my Mom's term of endearment for me.) He then wanted to know why my legs looked puffy, and I explained because Carter was in my tummy ,etc. He thought about it a little bit, and then the light dawned in his little face, and he said, "Oh, and Carter slides down into your legs. It made perfect sense to him. I love the rationality of little people.
Just for the record, five weeks from today we will officially be a FAMILY OF FIVE. Seems a bit surreal.
