Brainless

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.

  1. Aww, you poor thing! Well, if you ask me, the doctor shuold have questioned you by repeating “oak?” when you first said it because obviously you didn’t mean to say that! 😉
