My husband came home with this funny story--and I want to share.
He had a mom and her two kids walk into the clinic to be seen. Any time you bring kids--it's bound to get interesting. This is why I don't take kids. Unless, they are the ones who are sick.
Or we wait for daddy.
And frankly, to be honest, I'm not a brave woman. I would rather call in professional help (AKA my mommy or MIL) before I dare venture the doctor office, store, or any facility where I must take 5 kids on my own.
I. am. a. wimp.
Think what you want, but I am proud to wallow in the pool of pathetic and deseperate.
ANYWAY--as I was saying,
This brave woman came in with her 2 adorable kids. 3 and 7 years of age.
Before my husband could start the exam, for whatever she had come in for,
the 3 year old little girl asked him, "Dr. H? Can you pick up my mom?"
My husband nodded. "Of course I can," he smiled.
That for some reason, seemed to stump the little girl and she pondered on that.
Whereupon the 7 year old boy immediately voiced his awe. "Wow! Can you pick up an elephant?"
I have giggled at this all day long. Don't take this the wrong way--it's just the cute, innocent things our little kids tend to say...and at the wrong times.
Why is that?
