Doctor's visit

This is one of my favorite quotes: "I used to be the perfect mother. Then, I had kids."

Basically, that sums up my feelings about kids and doctor/ER visits. Back when I had no children (and when Leah was just a baby), I would get sooooooo annoyed at the kids who would come into the ER and would scream and cry no matter what we did. Even getting their weight, getting their temp under the armpit, and listening to their lungs was a battle. It ticked me off to no end. I couldn't understand why these moms couldn't just control their two year old. I mean, come on! In my mind it was simple.

Well....... today was Leah's two year well check, and she pretty much screamed almost the entire time. I had no idea what to do. She looked terrified; she fought, cried, pleaded, etc. And the doctor wasn't even doing anything to her! By the end of the check up she was drenched in sweat, and was just holding onto me sobbing.

Good times!
