Story # 1

It turns out that my OBGYN's son is in Little Man's Tae Kwon Do (TKD) class.  Usually the nanny brings him, but she is there every once in a while.  She was there last week and just happened to sit next to me.  I knew she didn't really know who I was.  I've only see her once, and it was way back in January.  (My February appointment was with the person doing the sonogram and then the nurse practitioner.)  Normally I am not the kind of person to just carry on conversations with people around me.  However, Nana and Papa were there, and Nana will talk to everyone!  I had told her she was my OBGYN and that was all the more reason for her to chat! :)  We talked through most of the class... just things about LM's hair, and how her son wasn't paying attention, etc.  At one point she asked me how I was related to LM.  I said I was his nanny.  I also introduced Nana.  I said that we had just moved here and Nana was visiting.  I explained that Little Man's family had paid to move me down here with them.  She said she wasn't sure if I was the step mom.  Then the conversation went something like this:

Dr.: "Where did I just here something about that?  Someone else was telling me that a family moved them here to be their nanny".
Me: "It was probably me"
Dr.: "No.... (pondering, and probably thinking she had never talked to me before).  It wasn't you..."
Me: "Hmm..."
Dr.: "Who was that?.... (pondering)
Me: "I think it might have been me"
Dr.: "No... You know, I think it was one of my patients"
Me: "I am one of your patients"

This led to lots of laughs.  She said she thought I looked familiar, but then some days everyone looks like a patient.  She couldn't figure out where she knew me from.  I told her not to worry... that I had only seen her once and it was a month and a half ago.  I think that made her feel a little better.  Then Nana said, "You didn't recognize the belly?"  Ha!

Story # 2

Little Man loves talking about Olivia.  He is always full of questions and has really cute things to say.  Yesterday we had this conversation:

LM: "Hey Bethany, I saw a commercial for something I think Olivia will like when she's 2"
Me: "Oh yeah, what was it?"
LM: "It's a doll that you can feed it fake food.  Do you think she'll like that?"
Me: "Yep, she probably will"
LM: "Well, I don't think it will be good for her when she's 1.  She won't understand it.  She probably should just get it when she's 2."
Me: "You are probably right"

Isn't he the sweetest? :)

He also wants to know where I will be having her first birthday party, and what babies wear in the pool.  He said he thinks she will definitely need ducky floaties or she will drown.  ;)

I can't wait to see what he's like with her.  I'm pretty sure he is always going to be close by and be willing to help in any way he can.
