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)
