Because I Am A Doctor

by Alex Iwashyna

in My Daughter, My Son

My daughter donned my glasses and decided to take care of her older brother while he was sick. It’s sweet until you realize that salami is his favorite food.

(click here if you can’t see the video because it’s too cute to miss)

The ending is my favorite.

PS. My son isn’t sick anymore. This video was just hilariously adorable, and I kept forgetting to share it with y’all. Also, I’m feeling particularly nostalgic for videos of my children. I want to listen to their voices and watch their mannerisms. While I treasure the stories I’ve captured in photos of our daily lives and holiday moments and sometimes on Late Enough, there is something magical in hearing the stomp of thick toddler legs and the tiny lisps of new words when I haven’t been there in years.

PPS. Not that this particular video has anything to do with that — it was made this summer. “OH, HOW THEY’VE CHANGED IN THESE WEEKS,” said Grandma Alex. No, not really. Great. I’m talking to myself on my own blog. It’s like my first post all over again. But I am also talking to myself as I type so really it’s like my reality everyday. I guess I’m pretty lucky that the video is, too.

A man stopped me once in the grocery store with Zoe and told me to record her sweet voice. He got that look in his eye as he talked about how he still loves to watch videos of his now grown kids when they were younger. It was so sweet.

Sometimes I wish I used a video camera more often — I know we have one somewhere but I’ve gotten so used to my iPhone I forget and I worry that I will regret it.

I love that robe, too. She especially loves when I wear mine at the same time.

He puts up with so much. Of course, there’s actually a follow-up video where she gets mad that he doesn’t believe she’s a real doctor and he says: “And that’s how you get rid of doctors.” Heh

She’s so ADAMANT that he can’t eat salami for a couple more days! That is way too cute not to share.

I know! She’s so funny when she gets something in her head unless of course it’s something I don’t want her to do. Haha.
