Melissa was horrified.
'But what if there's an emergency and they need a doctor? Tom will tell them his mother's a doctor!'
Hmmm, I hadn't thought of that!
So between us, Melissa and I explained what I really used to do and Tom kind of understood. Melissa and I had a good laugh about it, because really, she did think it was very funny, in a horrified kind of way. And Tom and I? We still refer to that time as when I was a doctor... It's much more fun than thinking mum just used to do lots of typing on the computer and finding medical files for the real doctors.
Just don't tell Melissa!
PS Don't you love the adorable doctor Hugo and his ailing patient Sophie? This was a long time ago, when they were very, very little. Now, of course, they are much, much bigger - but just as adorable!
