While at the doctor's office, Son #1 struck up a conversation with the nurse as she took he and his brother's height and weight.
"And how old are you?" the nurse asked.
"I'm five!" yelled Son #1 in his loudest indoor voice.
"Oh, you're getting very big." the nurse commented.
The nurse had Son #1 step onto the scale. She recorded his weight and then had Son #1 stand against the wall to measure his height.
"Scoot your feet as close to the wall as possible." said the nurse. "There you go!"
Son #1 pressed his feet and back against the wall obediently.
The nurse questioned him one last time. "Do you go to school?"
"Not yet." responded Son #1.
"Why not?" the nurse replied as she wrote her notes on the chart.
Son #1 quipped. "I have to learn how to tie my shoes first!"
