Garrett and Emma went yesterday for their yearly well check visits. Garrett was actually really excited to go to the doctor and I was amazed at how well he did. He didn’t even cry when he got a shot, and he answered all of the doctors questions with complete sentences. The conversation went something like this (in part):
Doctor: “Garrett, do you know how to kick a ball?”
Garrett: “yes (pronounced as if english is actually a second language, Spanish being his first), I know how to kick a ball very high.”
Doctor: “Garrett, do you know how to throw a ball?”
Garrett: “yes, I can throw a ball very high.”
Doctor: “Do you know how to jump up and down?”
Garrett: “yes, I can jump up and down very high.”
Doctor asks mommy. “Any problems with peeing?”
Garrett answers: “I Never pee the bed.”
Doctor asks mommy (about Garrett). What about pooping?
Garrett replies with surprise: “I NEVER poop in my bed.”
Oh my sweet Garrett. He makes me laugh. I’m such a lucky mommy.
