On Monday, the boy had his 5 year check up. Being the bad mother that I am, he had missed his 4 year check up so this one was a bit important.
Our wonderful pediatrician ran him through all the normal tests.
- Walk on your tip toes – CHECK
- Hop on one foot – CHECK
- Cough while check boy parts – CHECK
Then she asked him more academic questions.
Doc: “Let’s count these bolts on the space ship.”
Boy: “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 20” (perfect)
After that the doc had some questions for me. The boy was playing in the pretend spaceship in the exam room when we hear:
“Uno, dos, tres, quatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, dias!”
Somewhat surprised the doc walks to him and says: “Hablo Espanol?”
Doc: “You can speak spanish?”
Boy: (Looking at her strangely) “Um, no I speak english!”
Smarter than your average bear. 😉
