So, we go to the doctor the other day for the scary kindergarten appointment (AKA: THE shots.). It wasn’t great but I have to admit that it wasn’t really any worse than I had expected. In fact, overall, I thought she did great. She’s a wee bit on the dramatic side so given that personality trait, she rocked it. As for the memorable parts:
Nurse: “We need to check your hemoglobin levels so that the doctor knows that you’ve been eating your green beans.”
(Let me explain a bit, this is the finger prick and slight blood draw. Let me also mention that Little Miss dislikes green beans more than fresh cow pies.)
Little Miss: (Extensive questioning and resistance to this little procedure.)
Nurse: “Look, your mom will do it so you can see that it isn’t that bad.”
Me: “Ummm, yeah, look, I’ll do it.” (shooting the wide-eyed “WHAT?” look at the nurse)
(So, I do it. Then, she does it and it really wasn’t that bad. The nurse leaves and the doctor comes in.)
Doctor: (Fun and random questions including…) “What is your favorite food?”
Little Miss: (long pause…quite unlike her.)
Me: “You know what some of your favorite foods are.”
Little Miss: (a brief pause and the shy yet matter of fact answer) “Green Beans.”
I don’t know why this one was so funny but I just thought it was…
Doctor: “How high can you count?”
Little Miss: (again, very matter of fact) “Finity” (aka “Infinity”)
Anyway, hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day weekend…when did it become near the end of it??
Thought I would share a few more from this session…aren’t these two beautiful together?!
