Cry Baby

I took Kat, my freaking 18 year old, to the pediatrician today. She needed a check-up & her immunization record to register for FIU. So we sit in the waiting room full of babies & toddlers for a while. Then we are taken into a room to wait for the Dr. in total we waited for an hour and a half! Lucky for the doc, we like her. My girls like her. If it were up to them, they would go to her forever. in any case, I'm sure that I have commented on how much I hate making appointments yet not being seen anywhere near that time, so I won't go into that.

So while we are waiting you hear tons of screaming, hollering & crying. I jokingly ask her to please not cause a scene when the dr. sees her and act like a big girl. When the dr. walks in she does a quick check up and sends her to the lab, where they prick her finger. She then gets three shots and starts crying! Funny thing is, she never cried when she got shots when she was younger. Plus, she donates blood every 3 months or so. Go figure! She came out of there with 4 Elmo band-aids, but I have no proof because she would not let me take a picture!

I was a big baby, too. I think I saw my pediatrician until I was 20!

I have a picture of my husband with a Garfield bandaid on his forehead.

I can totally relate Lissete! I just in the last year began taking Taylor to a "grown up" doctor. At 17 he was far too embarrassed to be seen by a Pediatrician.

So you and I are both losing one to college next month... I think it might be time for some tears of our own... Never know, they might turn into tears of joy when we realize all the gas we're not eating up with them going every where in the city, the food they (and their friends) are not consuming, and the water and electricity they're not useing in the 30 minute shower!

(Oh, and Taylor gives blood too but the last shot hurt his "wittle arm... yeah - little arm by butt - he's got more muscle in his arm than I do in my calf and I"m a big woman...)

LOL Hugs to you friend!

So dreading shots doesn't get any better as they get older? Oh man!
