What's my surprise?

We had a fairly uneventful week, but Chloe was dressed in a cape for most of it, so it seemed exciting. Thursday morning I told Harrison we were going to get a surprise later in the day. He was filled with anticipation and spent the day guessing the surprise. A car? A train? Bob the Builder pajamas? I packed them in the car and took them to a pumpkin patch. "What's the surprise?" Harrison asked as got out of the car. I happily told them they each got to choose their very own pumpkin. They were underwhelmed.

Saturday we went for a walk as a family. Harrison told me he was going to pick me the biggest leaf he could find, "Because you're big, Mom."

A few days ago Chloe said, "Mommy pretty." I felt all warm and fuzzy inside. Just to be sure, I said, "Mommy pretty?" "Yeah," she said, "Pooh pretty, too."

They're doing wonders for my self-esteem. I just finished another pint of Haagan Dasz.

Jeff's interviews have been flowing in. To the left I've listed places he will interview for his intern year. A list of residency interviews will follow shortly.

According to last week's poll an overwhelming 54% of you believe "Grey's Anatomy" is the most overrated amongst Tennesee Williams (9%), Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (9%), and celery (27%).

If you go to Charlotte, NC, you could TOTALLY live in Belmont! What's up B-Town?

So, basically, you're a big Pooh.

That's right, all dreams come true in Belmont! My dream is to not be a big Pooh.

I am digging the cape--I love kids with fun personalities. I'm glad you found me so I could find you--you're on the list!
