Growing up as the oldest cousin on one side and an older cousin on the other side of my family, I spent many years being lead around by a tiny vice grip known as a toddler, under the command of "show you somethin'."
Come to find out, it's just as annoying with your own children. At least 25 times a day, I am pushed, pulled or verbally coaxed into another room for a glimpse at "somethin'" I probably could have lived without. How do all children eventually do this? Once in a while however, it pays off.
This morning, while enjoying an organic Pop-Tart (ignore the oxymoron) and taking a breather, "MOM, SHOW YOU SOMETHIN'" came on the radar. Within seconds Axel feet were clomping and I was helplessly being delivered to the living room. Upon arrival, Axel proudly announced "Doctor Oggars (Oscar)!!!!!" This clever little man had convinced the dog to dress in the Vet costume and to my shock, his floppy velvet ears were pulled back to reveal an actual stethoscope. WOW, truly this kid can get his way even with the dog (who doesn't look incredibly thrilled).
Lesson learned, "show you somethin'" . . . sometimes it's really something!
