Do you mean literally or figuratively?

The pediatrician, after looking at the Boo's 'stats' for his 9-month check-up/emotional-scarring-through-giving-excessive-shots-and-vaccines remarked, "do abnormally large heads run in your family?"

It's a trick question, right?

That is too funny! Let the doc know that Boo's just got some more growing to do. That boy's head is perfect! :)

HA!

My doctor vists were the not so bad unless i had to see one of the other peds on rotation. Most would forget to read the file that she was a preemie and ask me was I feeding her enough. Like I would starve he she would just cry louder?

My first born had the head the size of a moose! I looked at it and cringed when I thought about giving birth to that huge thing!
Of course now 29 years later she is a cancer researcher and truly brilliant! So maybe next time the doc says something stupid like that you can tell him that it's not overly big, just full of brains!

You should've said something like, "No, but abnormally small bodies do."

Hilarious! Love the suggested answers, too.

WHAT?!? That is SO wrong. I think I would tell him that ANY head coming out of my pookie seems large and that he should let you know what he thinks after he gives birth.
