Let's start with the bad idea, because that one came first. Sarah's one year appointment was today. I decided to take both of the girls to the Pediatrician's office. No big deal, Abigail can look at the fish, drink some milk, play with her puzzle game on my iPod. As long as the three of us were in a room with a door then all was well. Once I was in the waiting area making flu shot appointments it was a different story. Abigail ran off into the main lobby, down the hallway, and out the front set of doors. I was humiliated! This was also, by the way, after Sarah had four vaccines and was already upset. All three of us ended up shedding a few tears.
On to Sarah's checkup. She is on the tall and slim side. She is in the 75 percentile for height and on the low end for weight, so we have to work on the whole eating thing. She tries all sorts of food, but doesn't always end up eating it. She had four shots including her first round of flu shots. Then she had blood work done. I felt really bad for Sarah because they tried getting blood out of her right arm, but then had to move to the left because they were having problems. So she got stuck with a needle in six places today.
Now for the good idea. Both of the girls were thrilled to get a mid-day bubble bath. The icing on the cake was blowing bubbles in the tub. I think I may try this again sometime because they really enjoyed it.
Now I'm hoping for a great afternoon of long naps. We'll see how that one goes :-)
