Language Development: Check!
Four-year-old niece at the pediatrician for her checkup:
Gross and fine motor development: reviewed, doing well.
Social development: plays well with others; doing fine.
Question: "How's her language development?"
Keep in mind this is an only child with parents in their 40's and 50's, so she is talking up a storm. She's also had some minor-ish health problems in her short life. Nothing serious in the long run, but enough that she's already got an orthopedist and a hematologist in her stable of health care providers.
Mom turns to kid: "What do we call the boo-boo in your blood?"
Kid [unprompted]: "Spherocytosis."
Mom turns back to doc; no words but with one eyebrow elevated.
Doc: "OK then."
