He looks rather large for only being 2, maybe they thought smoking would stunt his growth??

Well, it may have! Full disclosure: He's my uncle and he was around 5'8" as an adult. My dad (his younger brother) was 6'2". :)

im guessing its not a real cigar, back in the day they had them made out of candy and chewing gum... I remember getting them at the barber shop

KellieAnne Smith Foreman Truthfully, I think it was a real one and his parents were just having fun dressing him up. He was the first boy (he had an older sister at that time).

It hasn't had a chance to stunt his growth yet. He's only been smoking for a couple of years so far.

KellieAnne Smith Foreman Some cigars certainly looked like that. They were usually called Perfectos.

Dan Johnson I was going to ask if this is for reals...It makes a good story how about if you write a short story

Rosanna Martinez well thank you , I've actually have written a few , also a few short screen play's , bit of a hobby , I don't really put them out on the internet anymore seeing's how I had one stolen and it was changed just enough and having no copyright on it I had no recourse when they turned it into a stage play and it became a big hit on Broadway but needless to say I have a number of friends that always tell me Dan you should write a book but I certainly do appreciate your thoughts hope you have a wonderful week and keep your eyes peeled you never know where I might pop up with some silliness

The first time I visited Italy to meet my grandparents I remember being shocked by an adorable younger 6 year old distant cousin who I've grown to love smoking a cigarette, taught by my very sweet great uncle. He's lucky he has good genes since my great uncle smoked every day of his life and lived to be 90, healthy until the last few months of his life.
