Big E: A Vocabulary Showoff
As Dr. K. examined Little E, who wouldn't leave my lap, Big E watched intensely as Dr. K worked her stethoscope magic.
That's right Big E, study up, as your only acceptable profession as a young Jewish boy is a doctor. Mr. Yoy and I will not hear of anything else (I'm kidding, sort of).
Dr. K pressed her stethoscope on Little E's back and listened to all of his bodily sounds.
When she was finished, the stethoscope left a circle mark on Little E's back.
MOMMY, WHY ARE THERE CIRCLES APPEARING ON LITTLE E'S BACK?
Before I could make up an answer, I had a question for him.
DID YOU JUST PROPERLY USE THE WORD "APPEARING" IN A SENTENCE?
I'm not going to lie, I was pretty amped that my kid just showed off his burgeoning vocabulary in front of his pediatrician. Also, this was a little redemption after the farmer's market run-in.
PROUD MOMMY MOMENT!
