Lets Talk About Specialists!

This morning Marcus was very keen to watch a video called Doctor De Soto, about a dentist who is a mouse. Elf is bringing home many dentistry-related items from the library to try and get Marcus over a little phobia he is working on.

Marcus was insisting that the title was Dentist De Soto. So I explained that dentists are called Doctor because they are doctors, who happen to be tooth experts. There are also ear doctors, eye doctors, bot doctors and so on. He said I had forgotten one kind of doctor - the "take your cat to get his claws clipped doctor".

I heard Michael say a two word sentence for the first time last night. Elf says he says "bye daddy" occasionally but I had never heard it before.
