Turkey in the Oven

I have had the same family doctor since I was 2 months old, and my mom and I love him dearly. When my mom was pregnant with my younger brother, she used to draw things on her belly so that when he did her prenatal exams she would surprise him and give him a laugh. One of her more memorable ones was drawing a turkey on her belly.

Today my mom had an appointment with him, and I tagged along to ask about a pediatrician referral. We decided to play the same trick on him (25 years later!) and my mom drew the turkey on my belly. Quite the butterball at almost 31 weeks I admit!

While we were in the exam room I asked him to take a quick look at my belly as I had a weird rash. When he lifted up my shirt he just about peed his pants laughing. It was great!

Here are a few pics (on the side view it says "Bake for 9 months"; please don't mind the stretch marks and my ugly belly button scar):
