Dr. Shark Week

I am relatively new to blogging but I've noticed that some bloggers include photographs of doodles--their own, their children's fantastic drawings, their gynecologist's rendering of what is happening. Well, I'm not due for a Pap smear for another month or so, and even then I can't guarantee results. The only artistic talents that my gynecologist has exhibited during our relationship was sewing up my episiotomy tear, and I don't think that he even did the cross stitch on that one. Although an earlier OB that I had ended up carving his initials into a woman's stomach because, according to him, he did such a great job with a c-section, he wanted to sign it. I bet he could have provided quite a sketch for my blog.

Anyway, my son was clearly sensing that I was feeling left out of the whole "adorable doodles on blog" thing so he left this inside my notebook. And even though we're not watching Shark Week on TV, (because we're afraid) his drawings seem very Shark Week to me. What I like best about them is that the first one does not have a body, just the shark head, but then he realized his mistake and included the body. He's clearly a genius. On his way to medical school.

Or, law school (gasp!) Is your earlier OB in jail? Because that is disturbing. I think I'd rather have a scalpal left in my uterus 'by accident.'

Clearly his talent is a result of good parenting; there's no other explanation. Imagine if you had a dog...that puppy would definitely win "Great American Dog".

Impressive. If he is going to be a doctor does he want to marry one of my daughters?

Anymommy--He was definitely prosecuted. Are you saying that my genius has to choose between medical school and law school?!

Kath--oh, please post your "kid"'s drawing! Like I don't know that you've been working on it yourself day and night.

Mama Ginger--Yes! And maybe even both of them!

I would LOVE to add pics, but Sassy and Bitchy are camera hogs, and also refuse to show Mom how to use it. I may have to hire a "camera boy". Hm, A NAKED camera boy.

That whole OB thing is CRAZY. OMG. And as for your son's drawings...he really should have his own blog. They are better than MINE. Yes, those are my drawings, they just look like my childrens! I suggest art school which is a kazillion times shorter than medical school and would give him YEARS and YEARS to make real money while medical students, interns, residents are eating ramen noodles.

I see the ads for Shark Week on every bus stop around here, but yeah - I'm not watching because too scary...

Love the doodles, I totally think you have a budding doctor (PhD doctor or MD doctor, however?) on your hands!

Those shark pics are very clever. How old is he?

My mom takes the little doodles from the kids and puts them on note cards. Just an idea for the super cute stuff.

Thought this may be of interest to all shark fans. I stumbled upon it today.


The last first-edition collector's hardbacks of MEG: Hell's Aquarium are being shipped to Barnes & Noble, Borders, and in time for Discovery Channel's SHARK WEEK, August 2nd - August 9th. MEG, short for Carcharodon Megalodon was the 70-foot, 70,000 pound prehistoric cousin of the Great White Shark. Reviewers have called best-selling author Steve Alten's latest installment "the Moby Dick of giant killer shark novels."

Must-reading for shark lovers!
