40 pounds


He did it.

I have no idea how.

It's taken him six years.

And he burns about 12,000 calories a day, just by running his piehole.

And he only eats green apples, corn, Alpha-Bits, grapes, green apples, bananas, green apples, popcorn, green apples, and, did I mention he eats a lot of green apples?

And last night, he had a tee-ball game, and his hustle reminded me of Mr. Hustle - Pete Rose.

He even ran about a 1/2 mile while his team was still batting, cuz he had to, you know, 'pee'.

But he weighed in this morning at a whopping:


You would have thought he had won a gold medal or something.

In fact, when he was FOUR, he tried wrestling.

He was allowed to practice, but he couldn't play in any 'matches' until he weighed FORTY pounds.

Yeah, wrestling didn't last very long, so we switched to baseball.

Thank goodness.

He'd probably still be seething on that wrestling bench.

I guess he's not a Sparrow anymore?


He'll always be the Sparrow.

  1. Yay! I am so happy he hit 40 pounds! He weighs almost as much as Blaze now...lol. Don't compare though, my kid is an Amazon or something. His diet sounds a lot like Blaze's too. Although I finally got him to eat chicken but it has to be from Zaxby's or McDonald's. Oh well, there goes my mother of the year award.
