Belly Belly Button, You’re Oh So Fine

I think Sandra Boynton is a genius, and this extends past her clever books to her music. These CDs make great gifts for the 99 and under crowd. My post title refers to the Belly Button (Round) which you can hear here (6th one down).

If you notice, Mary’s hair is slowly filling in. In 10 1/2 years of going to pediatricians, both civilian and military, I’ve mostly felt like just another anonymous face. Except for times of crisis (starving baby), I rarely feel there is the slightest flicker of recognition from doctors, nurses and staffers who have seen hundreds of other families in the intervening months from one well baby check up to the next.

When I took Mary in last week for her ear infection, the nurse exclaimed, “Oh! I barely recognized her! She has so much more hair now!” I wanted to hug her. Mary is such a cutie, it’s easy to see why someone would remember her. Or possibly, the trail of siblings following behind served to jog her memory…

  1. The Philiadelphia Chickens CD is an absolute must on any car trip. We all have our favorites. Mine…<>Please, Can I Keep It?<> Hubby’s…<>Faraway Cookies<>.

  2. That is one reason I will never leave my pediatrician (as long as we are here and so is she)She remembered my kids the very next time she saw them and asked questions that were not on the chart! In the 6 years we have been seeing her, she and I have become good friends (socially– we have kids the same age that have become friends because they go to the same school) When I am out in public with her, she sees patients and remembers them.

  4. Our youngest (18 months) had so little hair that people consistently asked us how HE was doing–even when she was dressed head to toe in pink. Finally, her hair is coming in, maybe even enough for a hair pretty. Then, hopefully, no more gender confusion!God Bless,Jane

  5. OK, ordinarily I refuse to quote that Communist hymnal from my youth, but there’s a bit from <>Free to Be: You and Me<> that speaks to bald babies and gender confusion admirably…
