Sometimes, when Ellie eats, you can tell because her tummy gets really big. It is cute. And so I photograph it, because it makes me feel like I’m doing my job properly.
And then I put the chubby tummy in a novelty onesie, that suggests that we’re going to feed her to wild dogs. She is not amused.
But then I explain that it’s really a pop-culture reference, not part of any plan to feed her to Australian canines, and she cheered up a little, though you can tell that she still doesn’t think it’s as funny as I do.
