Like Cream Cheese on a Bagel

If any of you talk to me regularly, then you know that Ezra loves to rub miscellaneous creams all over his entire body (and the walls, carpet, and any other surface available). I'm positive it came from all the months we slathered his body with Eucerin and prescription creams every morning and night for his eczema. Now he's convinced that every time he's left with semi-access to anything remotely close to lotion (including shortening, dishwashing soap, and shampoo), he absolutely must spread it like cream cheese on a bagel. Today I discovered Ezra madly digging into a jar of Georgia's Eucerin and covering any bare leg surface with copious amounts of cream. It was utterly ridiculous, but oh, so predictable.


Ezra in the bathtub right before I stripped him down



The Eucerin was layered so thickly that you can see exactly where his socks started

Ohhh Whitty!! He cracks me up!! What a crazy boy! He definitely has a mind of his own...and a love for ultra-smooooth skin.

Oh my heck!! Those pictures are laugh-out-loud funny. (that is also 'cause I am Auntie, and I can laugh and appreciate things done by my nephew...now if that was my own...)
You are right, so funny and soooo predictable. My favorite is the nice Eucerin "tan" line.

What a farmer's tan! That is hilarious! You know if he ever got into some Crisco and stood in the sun, he would smell like a pie!

I LOVE IT!!!! Ezra has yet to leave me bored and unentertained! he has got to be so fun/funny/crazy/exhausting/frustrating/full of life/etc. I am sure there is never a dull moment in your household when you have your little ones awake.

thanks for sharing the pics and story.

How funny! Let's just hope he ends that before he moves away to college.

lol! That is so cute! But I can imagine for you it was not so funny. Jordan has excema too, I hope this cream smearing thing isn't an inherited family trait. ;) But hey, at least it makes life interesting!

That is hilarious! You just gotta laugh when that kind of stuff happens. Aren't 2 year olds fun?!
