All of us parents want to believe that our sons and daughters are perfect little angels who can do no wrong, but that is almost never the case. Just think back on when you were their age – I’m sure you did some naughty things that you never told your parents about until years later, if even then!
We all want the best for our children, and we often think we know that that is. But sometimes we have to let go and let them make their own mistakes. It’s hard, I know, but that’s the only way they will grow and become their own person.
The funny fictitious story below is a hilarious example of just that, and I just had to share it with you. I can’t help but laugh at the doctor’s clever reply when the daughter says that she’s never been with a man!
A mother takes her 18 year old daughter to the doctor. The female doctor says, “Okay, Mrs. Jones, what seems to be the problem?”
The mother replies, “It’s my daughter, Darla. She keeps getting these cravings. Also, she’s putting on weight and is sick most mornings.”
The doctor raises an eyebrow but says nothing, not wanting to jump to conclusions. She gives Darla a thorough examination, checking for all possibilities.
Doctor reveals the truth
After finishing her examination, the doctor turns to the mother, takes a deep breath and says, “Well, I don’t know how to tell you this, but your Darla is pregnant. About 4 months would be my guess.”
The mother stands up from heir chair bursts out, “Pregnant?! She can’t be, she has never ever been left alone with a man! Have you, Darla?”
The mother turns to her daughter and looks at her imploringly.
Darla shakes her head and says, “No, Mom! I’ve never even kissed a man!”
Hearing this, the doctor stands up, walks over to a nearby window and opens the blinds. She says nothing, and instead just looks out the window attentively.
A few moments later, the mother asks, “Is there something wrong out there, doctor?”
The doctor replies, “No, not really, it’s just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and three wise men came over the hill. I’ll be damned if I’m going to miss it this time!”
I wish my doctor were half as witty as this one! SHARE if you laughed!
