me: “Why? You’re driven, smart, you work hard…”
Lil: [interrupting me] “MOM! Doctors are HORRIBLE PEOPLE.”
me: “Horrible? They’re healers!”
Lil: “They’re sickos!!! They stab people with needles, they use knives and they cut you open! Sometimes, they cut stuff OFF. And I know they do it to kids.They’re the worst kind of people possible. I will never, ever, ever be a doctor.”
