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..."
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.
