Great-Aunt Ruthie insisted that Mommy get a check-up during her long trip abroad. Today Mommy went to a nice doctor named Dr. Leach at Grandma Helene's OBGYN office. When the doctor heard Mango's due date, he said "if the baby comes a little late, you could have him on my brithday." Mommy said "oh, I thought you were going to say Rosh Hashana." The doctor said, "yeah, I can't tell you how many birthdays I spent in shul!" Mommy told him that at least his birthday isn't on Pesach like Daddy's, who grew up having matza cake every year!
When the doctor listened to Mango's heartbeat, he said "good wow-wows" (because the heartbeat sounds like "wow-wow-wow-wow-wow-wow-wow).
Mommy was glad to get a good report before she leaves for Australia next week.
