Dr. Froggy?

This is Froggy's new bedtime story. She wants us to read it to her every evening and begs, "Just one more page!" It is not light-reading, as I struggle to explain the three parts of the small intestine. In case you're wondering, it's the duodenum, the jejunum and the ileum. Yeah, say that while balancing a vibrating toddler, nebulizer and monster book. Whew, this mama is learning more than I ever wanted to know about the digestive system. Oh how I miss GOODNIGHT MOON.

You're definitely raising a little brainiac there. Can I please reserve her as our family doctor when she gets her license?

Too funny. Max had a human body book that he just loved to read up until last Spring. Then he got into mummies -- he knows about the mummification process, canopic jars..

BTW, have you ever read "Roar" by Tor Freeman? The character reminds me a bit of Froggy.
