The other day I was sorting through a few items in my daughter's baby book and found her birth certificate. I looked inside and notice that they had stamped her feet in it after she was born. Awww.
My baby book came with a special little "clean" stamp pad where you press the baby's foot onto the top of the pad, which is covered in plastic, and it makes the print on the paper below.
In looking at the prints I had made of my baby's feet, and the ones done in the hospital, I noticed something strange.
They are nothing alike.
Those footprints on my child's birth certificate? Not my child's feet.
See for yourself. They are not the same. Totally not the same. Not to mention the fact that the ones taken two weeks earlier are bigger. Huh.
Do I do or say something about it? The small print on the bottom of the page says that they are not a legal document and are a memento. Ok, sure, but not a memento of my kid.
Andy says that they did it right in the birthing room. Apparently, after they took the card away, they filled out some other kids' info on it.
