And then because its Joe's birthday, I started ironing his new (from his mom) dress shirt. [I really hate ironing, but I love my husband.] It was then that Charlotte started playing "doggy" with Hannah. Hannah was the dog and Charlotte was throwing peanuts (second course snack) for her to fetch. Basically Charlotte threw a peanut and called out "fetch doggy" and Hannah would run over and eat the peanut from the floor. I debated stopping this game as it somehow felt wrong to allow the three year old to feed the one year old like a dog. But it was good cheap entertainment. So I just watched and chuckled (inside).
Once all the peanuts were tossed and consumed Charlotte wandered down the hall towards Isaiah. I didn't hear the beginning of their conversation, but my ears perked up when I heard Charlotte declare "I do know what OB-GYN is!"
The debate went a little something like this...
Charlotte: I do know what OB-GYN is.
Isaiah: No you don't. Charlotte what is OB-GYN?
Charlotte: I know OB-GYN.
Isaiah: No you don't! What is OB-GYN?
Charlotte: I know OB-GYN!!
Isaiah: No you don't. OB-GYN is a made up word.
Charlotte: OB-GYN is not a made up word! OB-GYN is...OB-GYN is....OB-GYN is...
Isaiah: What is it Charlotte? You don't know.
Charlotte: I do know OB-GYN! It's God's playground.
It's at this point I nearly died laughing. But first I grabbed the video camera! And then once the discussion was recorded for prosperity, I explained that OB-GYN is not a made up word. It is a shortened version of obstetrics & gynecology, which is a specialty of medicine.
Time still went slow. But the laughs made it seem not so painful. And Joe's shirt looks great.
