Destined for Dentistry

I think Olivia might be destined for dentistry. She's fascinated with our mouths. Here's how my oral exam went down today.

Olivia sticks her hand in my mouth so I open nice and wide.
"Ooh big gums" she says.
"Big teeth too."
Then she sticks out her tongue which is my visual cue to stick out mine.
Then she spies something hanging down in the back of my mouth. "Momma, heart!"
Although many of the things she does makes me feel like my heart IS in the back of my throat, I think she's talking about my uvula. She proceeds to jam her whole hand in to try and feel this new discovery.
After I gag and remove her hand, I explain, "No, that's my uv-u-la."
"Oh, oovala!"

Just when I think she can't get any cuter...
