Right there!

Adorable, pleasantly confused patient: "I'm hurting!"
EC: "Oh? Tell me more."
APCP reaches around EC with both hands and grabs just below the hips. "Right there! That's where I hurt!"

Wondering what direction to take this blog.

A lot of funny things happen at work, but there is that whole HIPAA thing, so I don't want to get too specific, and when I take out the necessary amount of details, the stories lose their humor.

Perhaps we'll stick to toddler stories?

Like how the other day, when I was scolding Sweet Pea for something or other, she said, "Stop looking at me like that!" Nice to know my Mom Look packs a bit of a punch.

At a youth group meeting, as I was tickling Sweet Pea, the director asked her if he could do some tickling. She said, "Yeah, sure! You can tickle my mom!" What a helpful suggestion, thank you.

I have been amazed the last few weeks at how big she is getting. She can reach things I remember lifting her to before (certain sinks, water fountains, etc), and can climb up parts of the playground that I would have guessed she would need help with.

...And she is awake, for the first of her many nightly trips to the bathroom.. Better go help.
