The evolutionary reason, though, that children are so stinkin’ cute, is that they are an absolute ton of work. And just so you don’t leave them in a mall somewhere, they remain hopelessly adorable, even (at times) when covered in mud, or food, or spit up. It’s evolution, so their ancestors didn’t leave them in a cave or a swamp. But, hey. It works. I am telling you: it really does work.

Hoo boy.

So cute! ;)

Just when I want to rip my hair out my son makes the cutest face or says the cutest thing & then I’m like “oh yeah, that’s why I keep you around. “
