Another Embarrassing Pediatrician Story

It was that time of year, and I was at the office for my four-year-old’s well-baby visit.  The questions were the same thing they’d always been, so I was used to them.  The doctors always wanted to know how my kids were sleeping, eating, drinking and pooping. 
   “Make sure she’s getting enough fiber and fruits and grains,” Callie’s new pediatrician told me in a serious voice, as though this was my first time.
   I was almost too quick to respond. “Oh, you don’t have to worry about that,” I said proudly.  “We eat a lean protein, whole grain and veggie with nearly every meal.  My family eats extremely healthy.”
   It was something I could honestly brag about; even my husband complained about the consistent health-friendly dishes on the menu at our house.
      “That’s great news! I love to hear it.  Callie, what is your favorite food?”  The doctor pressed my daughter, an all-knowing smile on her face.
   Without even hesitating, Callie responded enthusiastically, “Cheetos and marshmallows!”

    This story cracks me up. I always feel a little irritated when they talk to me like I don’t have a clue what I am doing. I have managed to keep three children in good health for 5 years. Pretty sure I am doing something right!
