Patient's child

We had a patient come in with his four-year-old son. His son was snacking on some Ritz bits and I asked him what he was eating. He explained, "I can't talk on account of the fact that I have food in my mouth." Later, he asked one of the ladies who works in the office if he could see her ears and reprimanded her for not wearing earrings (a request from his last visit). She said, "Next Wednesday, I'll wear earrings," and he gave her the "Good!" response to let her know that he was pleased with that. He's one of these inquisitive children ... looks like a little Harry Potter ... you just never know what he's going to come up with next.
