Just Call Me Doctor Gullible

Sam: "Mommy, I wish you were a doctor."
Me: "I AM a doctor."
Sam: "No, I mean a REAL doctor."
Me: "I am a real doctor."
Sam: "No, a doctor who HELPS people."
Me: "I am a doctor who helps people."
Sam: "No, I mean a doctor who has tools."
Me: "I have tools. I have books, pens, a computer."
Sam: "No, a doctor who has tools like a stethoscope, finger pricks, and blood pressure. Trust me, Mommy, you are not a doctor."
Me: "What about that piece of paper that I have that SAYS I'm a doctor?"
Sam: "Mommy, you can't believe everything you read."

Kid's got a point.
