Because I Am A Doctor

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

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.

She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
