Yes, that’s a turkey-baster he’s holding, and it’s what he said he wanted for his birthday. The joy is apparent on his glowing face. This kid breaks the cockles of my heart wide open, and gives new meaning to the full gamut of human emotion. He took that turkey baster to school with him, more pleased than if he’d gotten a new video game or a trip to Disneyland. Happy Birthday Bean. Mama loves you more than I can ever express.
