The four-year-old's favorite video of the week was Elmo Visits the Doctor. I'm guessing that's what inspired the following. 

  • He was attempting to resist hair combing before school Friday morning. For some reason he detests having his hair combed, but a Mom's got to do what a Mom's got to do. "Stop it, Mom. Stop it! You're not even a real doctor." Huh???
  • That afternoon he came into my bedroom and announced, "I'm a penetration!" I was terrified, but had to ask, "What are you talking about, son?" "I need to use your stefo-scope," he said plainly. "Because I am a penetration." Since then, we have practiced pronouncing the word, "pediatrician." It's tricky. (pē-dē-ə-ˈtri-shən)


  1. He's cute as all get out! Love it.

    1. Haha! Thank you, Nicole. I'm afraid he uses it to his advantage.

  2. Wouldn't that be a stir- the kid doctor enters the examination room and says, "Hi, I'm Dr. Stickett, and I'll be your penetration today."

  3. Just the picture alone has me cracking up. What a little professor. Please keep these coming. I'm so glad The Penetration doesn't sound anything like The gynecologist, or we'd have something else on our hands.

  4. Yes, it could've been much worse. I'll do it!

  5. As a 41-year-old man who has visited a doctor, "I'll be your penetration today" is not the most anticipated utterance you'll hear from a doctor.

    I don't want to talk about it.
