Star Student

It's Jack this week! And Cecelia was "Student Helper" a couple of weeks ago. I have a new line on my CV - carting pets up to school for show and tell.

I asked Jack the other morning if he wanted to bring Katybell, our cat, or Spotty Dangerous, the snake. He said, "Mom, everyone already believes that I have a cat."

"What Jack? Some people in your class don't believe that you have a snake?"

"Uh uh. Aidan doesn't."

"Well, we'll fix that."

So in between breast conference, fat pad aspirate in fast track ED, surgical cases, and GI clinic, I'm bringing the snake and some cookies up to school tomorrow around noon. Spotty was a little rambunctious when we got him out to play tonight, so I'm going to feed him a big mouse. Hopefully that way he won't be hissing at the kids.

Oops, there's the oven timer now. No silly, not the mouse, the cookies. The mouse goes in the microwave.

I think one of my sons has those same pajamas, no awesome dinosaur feet though...or a cool snake. We used to have frogs but they escaped and our dog ate them. :-(

Sounds like a busy day!

You thaw mice in the microwave? They never exploded? O.o

The dinosaur feet came off of an old Haloween costume of his sister's. Don't you love those rocket ship Santas?

Kidding about the microwave! We thaw the mice at room temp.

So how did it go with the snake at school?

Love the pic of Jack!

The kids loved it! Except the girl that cried. And one boy was pretty terrified. But after they saw Jack so calm with him, all but two (who stayed far away) came up and touched him. Loved watching Jack tell all his friends Spotty stories - so cute!

I think we should all get to add all of our hats to our CVs.

But how impressive is "chauffeur", "bartender", "maid", "nurse" and "line cook" on an MD's resume?

Gizabeth Shyder said...

Blue collar jobs make us all look much more well-rounded. Who wants to live in the ivory tower?

Kyla said...

Yeah, what is it with kids not believing other kids have snakes for pets. My kids have gotten the same response!

Hope Jack enjoyed being the star!

The master of all! There's your new line.

Fantastic pic, btw. LOVE those feet!
