Friday I had to take Chancery to the public health nurse for some more shots. They do a few other tests there as well, and this time, it was an eye exam.
The nurse put a caterpillar finger puppet on her finger & moved it up & down, then covered one of Chancery’s eyes & did it again. Next, she changed the caterpillar puppet to a zebra one. She kept telling Chancery, “Watch the horsie! Where did the horsie go?” Chancery was paying absolutely no attention to it & the nurse seemed a bit mystified.
Finally, I pointed to the puppet & said, “Watch that, Chancery.”
To which Chancery told the nurse, “That’s not a horse, it’s a ZEBRA, Lady!”
