We all piled into the van to go to Greeley's doctor's appointment the other day. Rich was working which meant I had all three kids along for the ride. The kind doctor asked all sorts of questions about what Greeley's been up to developmentally. The conversation turns to her diet. What does she eat? Meat, pasta, fruits and vegetables. All the things that make me appear to be a competent parent. The doctor looks at his computer, looking for the next question. Into this silent vacuum Shea adds, "She really likes Sprite." I turn and look at him, completely dumbfounded. "What?" Later, I'm telling Rich the story- explaining how I felt like our nice doctor was looking at me suddenly as though I was putting Dr. Pepper in her baby bottle. Rich asked me, "Did you at least point out it was caffeine free?" Um, no.
