Unabashedly, I present a proud Norah moment.
I had a prenatal visit last week. Norah is always with me for these. She asserts her right to hold the doppler and find the baby’s heartbeat. As usual, she was with me when I peed in a cup. But this time she asks why. I reply “it is to check that I’m not spilling protein into my urine.” Oh, ok. That is all. No further conversation about it.
On Friday, Norah is with my parents. My dad is getting a physical from a nurse for his new life insurance policy. She hands him a cup. Norah asks why. “Um, your papa needs some water” the nurse says. Norah very matter-of-factly states “My mom pees in a cup to check for protein in her urine.” The nurse was quite taken by my smart 3 year old.
She is fascinated by her body and how it works. She asks some very difficult questions. And I’m considering homeschooling her??
