‘May I Quote You?’ I asked

‘Certainly,’ the mom said, ‘and you should add to it that I am an MD, cardiologist.’

Here is what she said to her daughter when she came to pick her up today:
‘Emelia, can you make me another Poekie, or better yet, can you make me some more clothes for the Poekie I already have?’
Both Emelia and I looked puzzled, her mom continued, ‘At the end of the day, when the kids are in bed, it is so calming and soothing to dress my Poekie. Really! It’s therapeutic. I would like some more clothes, please.’

It’s time to teach Emelia how to sew fancy dresses. She sews almost as well as her father, he is a surgeon.
