Somethin' for the honeyz

Okay, so lately when Davis eats, he almost always leaves an ounce or two in the bottle. It doesn’t appear to matter how much formula we’ve made--5 ounces, 10 ounces, makes no difference--there’s always a little bit left. We’ve tried to come up with reasons why he does this (An offering to the formula gods? A snack for later? He’s becoming his father, who will leave two jellybeans in a 16-oz jar or 3 chips in the bottom of the bag?) but Daddymatic finally came up with the best explanation last week. He came out of D’s room, showed me the requisite 2-oz. remainder, pretended to pour the bottle out on the ground and choked out: “This one {{sob}} is for my homies.”

I had to ask myself why I even leave the house.
