This has been a week of doctors appointments.
On Tuesday, Ani had her four-month well check. All day, about every two minutes, Ella would ask if SHE was getting a shot too.
On the car ride over, Ella asked if Ani would get a sucker after her shots. When I told her that, no, Ani would not, Ella asked if SHE could have a sucker after Ani’s shots, and then immediately followed it up by saying, “Yes, I’ll get a sucker because I am very brave at the doctor’s office when Ani gets shots.”
Frankly, I feel like parents should get a sucker after watching their children get stabbed in their chunky little legs with multiple long needles. (Of course, I don’t actually want a sucker. I want a large Lindt chocolate ball, but the nurse didn’t offer me either one).
And then yesterday, I went in for my annual eye exam and spent the rest of the afternoon looking at my children’s blurry faces because my eyes were so dilated I couldn’t see anything within a two foot radius of my nose. If Ani had sprouted a second nose, I probably wouldn’t have been able to tell.
Next week, I’m getting my hair cut (bangs? no bang? Ack. . . ) which is much more enjoyable than either of this week’s appointments.
