A Red Frog Named Sherman.....

We are back from the doctor's office. All is well. The boy has some sort of viral funk, but that was not the highlight of this trip. At four years of age, my son has figured out how much fun it is to be the center of attention even when he is sick. He lays it on especially thick for folks he has never met before. That brings us back to today's doctors visit. We went during walk in hours early this morning. It was especially busy in there so we didnt get to see Dr H today. We saw Dr S. The boy has never met Dr S nor has he had a female doctor that he can remember. When she walked in the room his face lit up and he turned to me with a grin a mile wide. Dr S preceded to ask what seemed to be bothering him when he piped up and informed her that he knew what what wrong. He told her that he had a frog in his mouth.........ahem.....a red frog. She told him that she might need to do a test to see if that frog's name was Strep. He quickly stopped her and told her that the frog's name was not Strep. He was a red frog named Sherman. After the "test" was completed Dr S confirmed that indeed this frog's name is NOT Strep. My boy knew this all along. Before we left he entertained her further with a few knock knock jokes. She even said she may have to use that "whats this frogs name game" for future strep tests as he willingly let her swab his throat with the 367ft long q-tip with no problems....to prove his point of course!
