Kate and Our Family Secrets...

I had my 35 week appointment yesterday and took Kate with me.  The doctor came in and did the routine check for the heartbeat and then proceeded to measure my ever growing stomach.  He then asked if he had done an ultrasound lately because I am measuring small, which in translation means you are not having this baby on time...lucky me.

I replied by telling him I could eat more donuts or McDonald's if that would help the baby grow, sarcastically of course.  Kate immediately told the doctor that I hate McDonald's...true!  He then started laughing and told me a story about one of his patients who is overweight, who was trying to explain that she was making an effort to stay away from junk foods and fast food in particular.  She had her daughter at her appointment too who interrupted their conversation to set things straight by telling the doctor that what her mommy was saying wasn't true because they had gone to McDonald's before the appointment that day.

He and I were laughing and Kate whips out, "My Dad picks his nose!"  The Dr. replied, "What?"  She then explained that she and I caught our daddy picking his nose in our new car.  I explained to the doctor that we had just bought a new car and that my husband, who tried to brush it off as having to scratch his nose, was clearly picking his nose, and that we had caught him in the act.  Kate was laughing hysterically!  We all started laughing.

Oh boy, kids say the darndest things don't they.   There is no such thing as a family secret!  Makes me wonder what her pre-school and dance teachers know...Too Funny!

This is a video of Kate's Thanksgiving Pre-school Program.

Haha so funny! I guess I should prepare myself to be embarrassed often.

My Dr told me that if I made it to my due date she would be small, barely 7 lbs. Well, I was a week early and she was 7 lbs 8 oz. I don't think they're accurate. You'll be fine!
