My Daughter the Dentist

Madison (my almost 3-year-old) and I just had this conversation:

"Mommy! I'm a dentist."

"Yeah, a dentist?"

"Yeah, I'm going to fix your teeth. Open up and say Ahhhhh."


"Hey, what that, what's that stuff in your mouth?"

"Those? Oh, those are fillings, Maddy."

"Why you have fillings? I'm going to fix them."

Part of me is so excited, because she's just started to really get into her own imagination. On the other hand, I'm thinking "Oh hell, she's already playing doctor!"

That college fund is started, isn't it? medical school is expensive :-)

I adore this age...3 - 4 are just amazing, I can't remember 5 but will let you know in October (that's when Wyatt will be 5, even though he INSISTS he's 5 now).

I agree with Keds - get that college fund going!

Oh, as if you didn't play doctor! Yes, this is early but good time to teach her about latex. hahaha
