Last week, Patrick and Theresa joined me at my ultrasound. They were very cute whispering about the baby. Theresa asked for a photo of the baby's face. Patrick requested a photo of the baby's "chipmunk cheeks" and heart. After the ultrasound, they asked the doctor if they could confirm the baby's gender and swore themselves to secrecy. They are the only two in our family who know whether this baby is a boy or girl and they are being very good about keeping their secret.
When we got to the car, Patrick stated, "I think that Theresa and I would make good doctors." As I drove home, he exclaimed, "Oh look, there is a cross in the baby's heart." Theresa replied, "That's because this is a Catholic baby."
The following morning, Patrick came into the kitchen and said, "Mommy, I think that Dr. M. is the best doctor that we have." The "we" made me smile. This is our baby, so obviously Dr. M. is our doctor. I have to say that I do like our doctor and could easily consider her a friend.
