Elephant Man

We took both kids to the doctors office today because we figured if you're going to go through hell why go through it twice. Just kick me in both balls today and I won't have to go through this whole thing again tomorrow.

The experience wasn't nearly as bad as we thought it would be and believe me we've had some bad experiences in the past. Of course, it doesn't help that our doctors office is notoriously slow. Once again we didn't actually see the doctor until an hour after our appointment time. The receptionist said that a lot of people call ahead because the doctor is usually running behind. It must be something to be so smart that you can finish medical school but yet so stupid that you can't figure out how to schedule your appointments. Every time it happens I tell myself that I'm going to say something to the doctor about it but I never do because she's a little scary. She's about 80 years old and 4'9'' and looks like your kindly grandma but she has that demeanor about her like she'll lay the stink-eye on your ass if you cross her. Plus, she's German... so she knows from stink-eye my friend. Oh yes, she knows.

After spending all of 10 minutes with our children, the doctor informed Bobbi that we should be very careful about what school we send Samantha to. She said that it's obvious that Sam is very smart and has "leadership qualities." When I was a kid they didn't call it "leadership qualities," they called it "bossy."

There was an interesting conversation while we waited for the doctor to grace us with her presence:

"Let's play "I spy" Samantha said.
"Okay," said Mommy, "I spy something that's gray, has a big trunk, and big ears."
"Is it daddy?"
"No, it's not daddy," Mommy said.
"But daddy has big ears," said Samantha.
"And a big trunk," said Daddy, "let's not forget the big trunk."
