Today I took the girls to the doctor’s office for their ten-month visit. We were there for over two hours and it was an embarrassing experience from start to finish.
When we first arrived I decided to use the restroom. I hate using public restrooms, especially at doctor’s offices. I didn’t want to touch a thing while I was in there. I grabbed a paper towel and used it to shut and lock the door. After a minute the door swung open! The paper towel prevented me from turning the lock properly. As I rushed towards the door I saw that the waiting room was filled with people. Fantastic!
If that wasn’t bad enough, the girls had a meltdown as soon as the doctor walked into the room. I was so distracted that I made absolutely no sense as I answered the doctor’s questions.
Doctor: What have the girls been eating lately?
Me: Fruits, veggies, and chicken. I want to introduce oak into their diet. At what age is that appropriate.
Doctor: Umm never.
Me: Never? Isn’t that a good source of protein?
The doctor was giving me a blank stare.
Me: Isn’t it?
Doctor: No oak isn’t edible.
Me: Not oak…egg yolk!
Doctor: That makes more sense. Wait until they turn one.
The doctor had a puzzled expression on her face as she continued asking me questions. I continuously gave ridiculous responses because I was so busy trying to get the girls to calm down.
I was told that doctor’s visits become more difficult as children get older. They are more aware of their surroundings and learn rather quickly the doctor’s office isn’t a place they want to be. I am not looking forward to our next visit. Their doctor most definitely thinks I am brainless.
